News of 'Homeland's third season has been much more slow in coming than that of 'Dexter's final season, given Showtime's decision to separate the two in launching their new series, but fragments of the Emmy-winning terrorism thriller have finally started to surface. 'Boss' star Amy Morton and 'Prison Break's Tracy Letts have joined the 'Homeland' season 3 cast in important recurring roles, but as whom?
Given the multiple departures and relative secrecy surrounding 'Homeland' season 3, the fact that existing characters would be upped to series regulars hardly seems surprising. More unexpected, however, is that Oscar-winner F. Murray Abraham has taken his first series regular role in the third season of the acclaimed Showtime drama, reprising his intelligence legend Dar Adal. Abraham isn't the only recurring star upped to regular, so get the latest on 'Homeland' season 3 inside!
While 'Dexter's early final season premiere has given way to all manner of new spoilers and teasers, 'Homeland' season 3 has kept relatively quiet in the last few months, set to premiere its newest run on September 29. Showtime will likely guard spoilers like state secrets, but how would you like to learn how 'Homeland' season 3 picks up after season 2 finale "The Choice?" Get the latest 'Homeland' intel inside!
It's been a good long while since we've heard any 'Homeland'-related news, with season 3 set to pick up sometime in September along with Showtime's new drama 'Masters of Sex.' And while season 2 finale "The Choice" left plenty of characters and stories in limbo, now it seems another character won't have a very large story going forward. Find out who's stepping down as a series regular for 'Homeland' season 3 inside!
Late yesterday we heard the surprising news that 'The Walking Dead' star Lauren Cohan would take part in an upcoming episode of 'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit' tackling the infamous "legitimate rape" controversy borne of one-time Senate hopeful Todd Akin's public blunder. Now, the episode has gained even more note in casting another key player of the episode's storyline, attaching 'Homeland' star David Marciano for the role, but will the episode bring attention to the right cause?
With each passing awards ceremony, the Academy's snubbing of Ben Affleck for Best Director looks increasingly ridiculous. Some thought that 'Argo' winning Best Picture and Best DIrector at the Golden Globes was something of a fluke, but now that the critically acclaimed box office hit has won big at the Producer's Guild of America awards, you may want to shuffle around your Oscar bets.
Despite its many Emmy and Golden Globe wins, we've known for sometime that 'Homeland' season 3 would naturally feel very different from its two predecessors, having mostly wrapped up the threat of Abu Nazir, and temporarily stuck a pin in the character of Nicholas Brody. Now, with Carrie Matheson likely to face a new threat in the Showtime series' third season, which supporting characters and regulars will be putting in reduced appearances this fall? Is Diego "Uncle Mike" Klattenhoff the first casualty of 'Homeland' season 3?
Considering that 'Homeland's' Damian Lewis picked up yet another award for his portrayal of POW-turned-Congressman Nicholas Brody at last night's 2013 Golden Globe Awards, there shouldn't be much doubt that Showtime would look to keep the actor and character present through the show's upcoming third season. But given the events of 'Homeland' season 2 finale "The Choice," how sure can we be Brody will return? Find out the latest on Damian Lewis' involvement in 'Homeland' season 3 inside!
Having won her first at age 15, Claire Danes may soon need a bigger shelf for Golden Globes. The 'Homeland' star has officially picked up her latest, the Best Actress in a TV Series, Drama award for her role as CIA analyst Carrie Matheson, joining her co-star Damian Lewis and the series itself. Can anything put an end to 'Homeland's reign of terror accolades? Find out the full awards results inside!
