However, it turns out that it wasn’t a last moment decision. In an interview with a leading entertainment portal, co-developer of Homeland, Gansa said,
“Homeland was conceived as a story about a protégé and a mentor. The Saul-Carrie story has been the one constant through eight seasons. And we really get to bring that story to a close. It’s the reason that I stuck around for eight seasons. And I hope we did some justice”.
He continued, “Homeland has been the most joyful and rewarding experience of my career. Not many have been as lucky as me—partnered with the miraculous Claire Danes, supported to the ends of the earth by Fox and Showtime, and working in the company of some of the most gifted writers, actors, and filmmakers in the business. I am sad to see the journey coming to an end, but it is time”.
