New 'Homeland' season 4 teaser reveals juicy plot details

Showtime has released a new official trailer for Homeland‘s fourth season, premiering with a double episode on Oct. 5. The action-packed two-minute preview unveils plot details not included in the first two shorter and tamer Homeland teasers, released in July and August.

In the season-three finale, viewers learned that in the aftermath of Brody’s successful counterterrorism mission and subsequent public hanging, Carrie was appointed CIA Station Chief in Istanbul. (Check out EW‘s coverage for season-three recaps and more)The trailer kicks off six months later in Pakistan, and it makes several things clear.

Carrie and Saul are back to co-kicking ass. Carrie and Saul had a rocky relationship last season, to say the least; in the finale, Saul announces he’s leaving the CIA for the private sector. But what is Homeland without Mandy Patinkin? We see Carrie reluctantly accepting longtime friend Saul’s help—it looks like there’s a chance they’ll become the formidable team they once were.

There’s a lot of Corey Stoll. We get a closer look at the dubious role of newcomer Corey Stoll, the Golden Globe-nominated actor known for playing tortured politician Peter Russo on Netflix’s House of Cards. Stoll will play Sandy Bachman, the ambitious CIA Station Chief in Pakistan. Officially billed as a guest star, Stoll’s Homeland appearance looked to possibly be a limited engagement—but the new preview suggests viewers will be playing familiar season-long game of is-he-or-isn’t-he-a-double-agent with Bachman.

Carrie had Brody’s baby. The preview offers a few glimpses of a conspicuously red-haired little one, the baby of the now deceased Sergeant Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) that Carrie was pregnant with last season. Carrie’s sister Maggie (Amy Hargreaves) accuses Carrie of finagling her way into a position overseas in order to avoid raising her daughter. Harsh, but not out of character for our embattled protagonist.

The CIA will see the s–t hit the fan again. We see Saul watching a viral YouTube video titled “American Missile Strike on Wedding”—devastating footage of a CIA-led mission, ostensibly a drone strike, that becomes a PR nightmare for the agency.

Quinn is back. But so is Senator Lockhart. Fan-favorite CIA agent Peter Quinn (Rupert Friend) returns as Carrie’s coworker, confidante, and sometimes-savior. We see Quinn roughing up a baddie and protecting Carrie from an angry mob. And Tracy Letts is back to being the meddlesome jerk fans love to hate as good old Senator Lockhart.

Carrie is still the same rough-around-the-edges hero. True to form, Carrie is trying to get to the bottom of an epic, terrorism-fueled international mess. She offers to help protect a teenaged Pakistani boy whose family was kidnapped—before yelling at pretty much every single character in the preview.

'Homeland' season 3 trailer: Everyone is sad -- VIDEO

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:
