Even if you don’t watch Homeland, you’re probably aware that Claire Danes’s Carrie is known for her emotional outbursts. But it’s her quiet goodbye to Brody—inking a star on the CIA’s Memorial Wall to commemorate his covert sacrifice—that Entertainment Weekly named the most emotionally devastating scene in the series, as well as one of the 50 Best TV scenes of the year. Watch it again, then look below to find the sheet music for composer Sean Callery’s unconventionally wistful score. READ FULL STORY

Showtime is sharing a few pieces of intel about Homeland: Two new roles have been cast for the upcoming fourth season. Corey Stoll — who earned a Golden Globe nomination for his role on House of Cards and whose credits include The Normal Heart and Midnight in Paris – will guest-star as Sandy Bachman, the CIA chief of station in Pakistan who’s a rising star within the agency. The number of episodes in which Stoll — who also stars in the upcoming FX drama The Strain — will appear is being kept under wraps. READ FULL STORY
Homeland is moving its production to Cape Town in South Africa starting this summer.
Claire Danes is deep in the trenches of Homeland filming, with three more episodes of season 3 to shoot, and while it’s not clear exactly what Carrie and Co. at the CIA are up to this year, it’s safe to say it’s going to be intense.
In addition, Danes is currently prepping for the Emmy Awards, where she’s up for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama (she won last year). But she still found time to shoot an Emmy-themed ad for Audi, which will premiere during the telecast (the exclusive photo above is from the ad shoot — puppies!). “It’s really kind of goofy and playful,” Danes told EW about the Audi ad. “I’ve been doing Homeland for three years now and it’s pretty intense,” she laughed. “The stakes are preposterously, ridiculously high. So I was looking forward to just goofing off for a few days and having some fun.”
And fun is not really a word anyone would use to describe Carrie Mathison — regardless of what the future holds. Danes may be close to the end of season 3, but that doesn’t mean she has any clue where her storyline is headed next. “I don’t even bother to fantasize about what it’s going to be or cultivate a hope for what Carrie might be in the coming season because I know I’m going to be so overwhelmed by [the writers'] infinitely better ideas [laughs].”
While Danes might not yet have a season 4 plan, EW did get her to tease some season 3 intel (bad for a CIA agent, great for TV viewers!) about the latest in Carrie and Brody’s relationship, why Saul and Carrie may be on the outs, and the moment she’s most proud of from season 2 of Showtime’s drama.

Showtime’s Emmy award-winning hit Homeland doesn’t return for season 3 until Sept. 29 — which may seem like forever for fans of the terrorism thriller.

Watch below…

The trailer for Homeland is finally here, and while the last few episodes of season 2 were action-packed, the third-season tease goes for an emotional punch rather than edge-of-your-seat thrills.
Alongside very little dialogue, the music-heavy trailer shows a montage of intriguing glimpses into where everybody is, both physically and emotionally, after the terrorist attack at the end of last season. Saul and Carrie are testifying in front of the senate, Brody — after his intense goodbye to Carrie — appears to be on the run (and bald!), Carrie looks like she’ll be spending at least a little time in a hospital, and even Dana is beginning to pick up the pieces, flipping through old photos of her family, taking some kind of selfie photos on a phone, and, perhaps most interestingly, praying on a prayer rug.
The clip ends with Saul looking at a distraught Carrie and saying, “I am so sorry.” Intrigue! What are you waiting for? Watch below:

Between now and June 28, the deadline for Emmy voters to submit nomination ballots, EW.com will feature interviews with some of the actors and actresses whose names we hope to hear when nominations are announced on July 18.
It was often hard to tell what David Estes (played by David Harewood) is thinking on Homeland. As director of the CIA, he had to remain calm and collected, rarely breaking for a vulnerable moment, constantly calculating his next move. Claire Danes gets a lot of deserved credit for her stirring portrayal of a character so intelligent, yet constantly on the edge. Mandy Patinkin as Saul gives a subtle, but forceful performance. But Harewood as Estes had to let you know what he was feeling with a glance, a furrow of the brow, a steady upper lip.
When we asked Harewood to pick a scene to discuss, he chose an early scene from the first episode of season two, “The Smile.” Estes goes to Carrie’s house to talk to her on her porch. A CIA asset say she has information about a possible attack on the United States, but she will only talk to Carrie. So, even though she’s not longer working for the CIA, Este is forced to pull Carrie back in. In the end he asks her to go to Beirut, which leads Carrie on the road to vindication.
Read our discussion about that scene, executive producer Alex Gansa’s note that changed everything, Estes’ relationship with Carrie, and those Doctor Who rumors: READ FULL STORY
Writer Meredith Stiehm, 44, shares similarities with Homeland‘s Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes): both work in male-dominated places (Stiehm is the Showtime series’ sole female writer) and both have personal connections to bipolar disorder (Stiehm’s sister, like Carrie, suffers from the condition). Stiehm has penned some of the series most acclaimed and talked about episodes, including season one’s “The Weekend,” where Brody (Damian Lewis) and Carrie go to her cabin in the woods, and season two’s “New Car Smell,” in which Carrie finally arrests Brody.
“I didn’t come in until like episode 4,” says Stiehm. “[Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa] created the character and the show. Around episode 4, they realized that there were all male writers and they had a female lead so they wanted a female writer.” Adds Danes, “She’s really incredible. Her voice is so distinctive and so honest and funny. She has a very wry sensibility that’s so in keeping with who Carrie is. But she also is very warm and feeling and all of that translates into all her work. I owe an enormous amount to Meredith.”

No surprise, but now it’s official: Showtime’s Homeland has been renewed for a third season.
Coming off last night’s ratings high for the sophomore series (1.75 million viewers at 10 p.m) — not to mention one heck of a plot twist — the Emmy-winning drama series starring Claire Danes and Damian Lewis will begin production on season 3 in spring 2013.
“The Emmy wins for Homeland have certainly set the stage for a great second season,” said Showtime president David Nevins in a release. “The writers, cast and crew of Homeland continue to create a remarkably entertaining and suspenseful roller coaster ride, growing audiences week after week. We can’t wait for our viewers to experience what unfolds through the rest of season two. Our partners at Fox 21 have been tremendous, and we are thrilled to begin the planning for Homeland‘s third season.”
It’s been months since we’ve seen Carrie (Claire Danes) and Brody (Damian Lewis), the complicated lovers of Showtime’s critically acclaimed drama Homeland. But today, Showtime released the trailer for the series’ second season, premiering Sept. 30, which includes an apparent reunion between the two. Set to Belgian choir Scala & Kolacny Brothers’ version of “Every Breath You Take,” the trailer also showcases some of the footage that the Homeland team shot on location in Tel Aviv, as well as quick shots of new castmembers, like Rupert Friend. Watch below and prepare to get chills… READ FULL STORY
