Homeland will return to Channel 4 at 9pm on Sunday October 6th, making Sunday night television even more difficult, as it clashes with both Downton Abbey and Love/Hate. Better set the recorder on so.
Channel 4 confirmed today that the hit show, which stars Claire Danes, will be back in just over a week. The hit TV show recently saw Claire Danes, for the second year in a row, win an Emmy Award for Best Leading Actress in a Drama Series. While writer Henry Bromwell was also commended for his work on season two 'Q&A'.
The new series is set to be the most 'emotional and different' yet, according to Fox 21's Bert Salke. Plenty of surprises are in store along with new cast members. The third series will see a whole host of fresh faces in the shape of Gossip Girl's William Abadie, Up in the Air actress Amy Morton, Boardwalk Empire's David Aaron Baker, Law and Order: SVU's Joanna Merlin and Prison Break's Tracy Letts.
The first episode will pick up from the explosive ending of the second with Brody now on the run. Homeland's Alex Gansa has promised that with this series every episode could be Brody's last. But given they were supposed to kill him off in the first and second series, we have or doubts as to whether this will ring true. In an interview with Vulture, Gansa said, 'I think that the writing staff was convinced that there was enough story to tell, certainly for the second season, and obviously, by the third season, we're still telling that story,But I believe there will come a point at which telling that story further is just a case of diminishing return. I don't know whether that's going to happen this season, or whether it's going to happen next season.'
