No. of Season: 8
Homeland aired its series finale in April after eight seasons. Showtime president David Nevins announced the show’s cancellation back in 2018 at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour, noting that the decision to end the show was made by lead star Claire Danes and executive producer Alex Gansa. “Alex and Claire both started talking about it towards the end of last season,” Nevins explained at the time. “I asked, ‘Are you sure? Let’s think about it.’ But when they were resolved, it seemed like it was the right time. The two of them finally made the decision.”
Based on the Israeli series Prisoners of War, Homeland revolves around the ups and downs of Carrie Mathison (Danes), a Central Intelligence Agency officer with bipolar disorder. The cast includes Mandy Patinkin, Maury Sterling, Linus Roache, Costa Ronin, Nimrat Kaur, and Numan Acar.
