Showtime has announced that the upcoming eighth season of thriller Homeland will be its last.
“Homeland has been a game-changing series for Showtime, as provocative about the world we live in as it is prescient,” Nevins said. “This project, arriving right at the beginning of my Showtime tenure thanks to Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon, and brought to life by a remarkable cast led by Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin, is a richly written character study that is now ready for its natural conclusion. Viewers will be rewarded by the way Alex brings Homeland home.”
It’s yet to be announced where the show, which hasn’t been shy about uprooting and rebooting itself, will take place in season eight. Past seasons of the show have taken place in Kabul, Berlin, and Brooklyn.
One of the first series launched by then-new Showtime president David Nevins in 2011, Homeland quickly became a critical and commercial darling as well as a network cornerstone. Over its first seven seasons, the series earned eight Emmys (with three additional nominations this year), five Golden Globes, a SAG award, a Peabody, and three AFI awards, among many other accolades.
The eighth and final season of Homeland is set to premiere in June 2019 on Showtime.
