With all the network TV making its fall premieres these days, it’s easy to forget that September 30 will make up a huge day for Showtime, bringing to TV its ‘Dexter‘ season 7 and ‘Homeland‘ season 2 premieres! That said, ‘Homeland’ on principle plays things pretty close to the chest, so what scoop can we expect from the second season of the Emmy-nominated drama? Why, how about Oscar-winner F. Murray Abraham taking a pivotal new role, but as whom?

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we’ve just gotten a bit of info on an exciting new casting for the second season of Showtime’s central intelligence drama ‘Homeland,’ set to premiere on Sunday, September 30. It seems that Oscar-winner and legendary actor F. Murray Abraham will take a role in the new season, debuting later on as Dar Adul, “a brilliant intelligence operative in his 60-70′s [who] has worked all over the world for the Special Activities Division of the CIA.”

Further details of the role were unavailable, but EW postulates that Adul might represent something of a mentor to Saul (Mandy Patinkin). No stranger to TV either, Abraham was also featured in a recent episode of ‘Louie.’

Otherwise, relatively little is known about ‘Homeland’ season 2, other than former ‘LOST’ and ‘Rome’ star Zuleikha Robinson will play a Middle Eastern field journalist with a special relationship to Abu Nazir (Navid Negahban) who delivers an ultimatum to Brody. Navi Negahban has been moved into a series regular position alongside Jamey Sheridan’s Vice President Walden.

What say you? Are you excited for the second season of ‘Homeland,’ particularly now that Abraham is on board? What secrets will Carrie Matheson uncover next?
