This morning we discovered three new TV teasers for the new season of Homeland.
Admittedly they're short and they don't really reveal too much, but at least now we know that it's definitely returning to US TV screens on September 30.
Showrunner Alex Gansa is, predictably, keeping details of season two very close to his chest. Though TV Line did report that the new series will pick up six months after the events of the season one finale.
Gansa has also admitted that viewers will see “right away” how Carrie gets re-involved with the investigation into Abu Nazir, despite the fact that she is now persona non grata with the CIA.
“It would have been too far a jump to bring her back into the fold full bore,” Gansa acknowledges. “However, there are ways that she can work around the edges of the intelligence community that make sense.”
But will Carrie, with bits of her short-term memory fried by the ECT, ever retrieve her realisation that Sgt. Brody knew Abu Nazir’s son, who was among the collateral damage of a black-ops U.S. military strike?
“There’s a tremendous sense out there in the audience of wanting Carrie to know that she was right, that she’s not crazy and is really good at what she does, and that’s the moment we’re going to be building towards,” says Gansa. “Whether it’s going to happen in season two, I can’t tell you.”
Gosh it's all just SO EXCITING.
The first teaser trailer is a bit of a recap of season one (which is great for those of us with memories like a seive). The second two are little snippets featuring Carrie, Sgt Brody and some spooky music.
