Homeland hit the screens in 2011 and filled the gap left by 24 on TV. It began with Marine Sergeant Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis), who is presumed dead at home is freed from years of imprisonment under terrorist Abu Nazir and returning a hero.
CIA officer Carrie Mathinson (Claire Danes) smells the hidden conspiracy but her warming is dismissed owing to her bipolar disorder. The show got bigger after every season. The ongoing premise of season 8 is brilliant and Homeland season 9 will surely hit the ball out of court.
How Homeland season 9 will be much more than Carrie- Brody
Carrie and Brody sparked bad romance whenever they face d each other. Mixed with betrayal and lust, they carried 3 seasons and viewers were hooked. No doubt they could have carried the entire series on this premise but Homeland chose to be bigger and more brilliant in storytelling. Despite the hard-to-ignore sizzling chemistry between Carrie and Brody, the beating heart of Homeland is always the protégé-mentor relation between Carrie and Saul, according to makers.
Homeland got away with Brody after season 3 and Carrie carried the tale on her shoulder dealing with troublesome contemporary times every season. Season 8 is set in Afghanistan and takes into account the ongoing peace deal talks with the Taliban. And Carrie is in the same shoes as Brody was years ago-Broken. (No more spoilers). The seventh episode of the 12-episode-set season will air on 22nd March. Season 8 begins on a fresh note, which leaves scope for Homeland season 9 to carry the story further.
What’s cooking for Homeland season 9?
It was announced way back that Homeland will return on its eighth outing, only to finish the job that Carrie Mathinson started years ago. Every season plays on the central theme-“What have we learned from 9/11 and how has it changed us?” according to Alex Gansa (creator and showrunner).
Gordon points out,
“I think the DNA of this show was remarkably durable and expandable in ways we couldn’t have understood 10 years ago.”
This is exactly what every fan of Homeland feels about the show- the story is expandable way beyond season 8 and season 9 of Homeland must happen.
On being asked by Variety on the prospect of Homeland season 9, Gordan replied— “The answer is never say never, but it’s a bad time to think about that question. Nothing’s impossible, but there are no plans.”
Well, for now, season 8 may be the last but for Homeland season 9, all we can say is never say never. Does Homeland have enough room for season 9? The answer would be- it always has. We will have to wait for some time for makers to make their minds for Homeland season 9.
Release date of Homeland season 9
Homeland is currently airing its eighth and supposedly final season. The finale episode will air on 26th April 2020. Going by the release pattern, the show premiered every year except for season 8. It was delayed because of production demands of international locations.
If season 9 of Homeland begins filming on the same line, it might premiere in February 2021 or February 2022. Troublesome contemporary International politics has lots of food to offer for another round of Homeland season 9.
