If you haven’t seen it already, here’s the trailer for season three of Homeland, which premieres in the US on September 29th and should follow on Channel 4 shortly thereafter. (UK premiere date still to be confirmed.)
Mild spoilers follow …
As ever, the trailer doesn’t reveal much, but amongst other things it appears that (a shaven-headed) Nick Brody and Carrie Mathison will remain separated, the 12/12/12 bombing at Langley will have repercussions in the form of a Senate investigation, Peter Quinn will be seeing action in the field and the leadership vacuum left by Abu Nazir’s death will be filled.
It certainly looks like the writers haven’t been afraid to rewrite the show’s formula to keep it fresh and not allow the Brody/Carrie axis to outstay its welcome. That can only be a good thing. We’ll see how things pan out when the series returns in a couple of months’ time.
