Homeland: Season 3 plot details revealed
Story by Jack Foley
THE third season of acclaimed thriller Homeland will be based around a “global manhunt for the world’s most wanted terrorist” Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis).
Showtime has teased the plot details as anticipation builds ahead of the third season’s premiere in the US in September.
The statement from the cable network continues: “As Carrie (Claire Danes) and Saul (Mandy Patinkin) begin to pick up the pieces of their shattered professional and personal lives, they are swept up in the political and media firestorm surrounding the terror attack and the subsequent search for Brody’s whereabouts.”
In addition to confirming the return of Lewis, Danes and Patinkin, cast members Morena Baccarin (Jess Brody), Rupert Friend (Quinn), Jackson Pace (Chris Brody) and Morgan Saylor (Dana Brody) are all back.
But neither David Marciano (Virgil) or Diego Klattenhoff (Mike) will return as regulars – but possibly in a recurring capacity.
The 12-episode third season will debut in the US on Sunday, September 29 at 9pm, with Channel 4 expected to show the new episodes shortly afterwards.
