Where does Homeland go after the tragic season 3 finale? At the Showtime Winter TCA Press Tour, David Nevins, President of Entertainment, acknowledged that some fans and critics weren't pleased by the show this year. And, then he teased that the show will be moving in a new direction centered around the show's main character, Carrie, in season 4.
"From what I've read on twitter there are a lot of different opinions about the show this year. All I can say is thank you for being so invested," said Nevins.
"This is an instantaneous review every minute of every episode culture and has led to this must see-ness that has driven Homeland's ratings higher than anything we've ever seen at Showtime."
While some may have been dissatisfied with Homeland season 3, it was Showtime's best rated show, "In fact, Homeland became our first series ever to reach 7 million viewers a week mark. A real milestone for us," said Nevins
Given Brody's death, Carrie's pregnancy and new appointment, the show will be making a shift."Obviously there's a big reset," said Nevins. "I know that this is fundamentally a show about a field operative and we haven't really seen her -- with the exception of the very beginning of season 1 and the very end of season 3 -- we haven't seen her out in the field operating."
As of right now, Nevins believes Homeland season 4 "will see her on the ground in a foreign capital doing her job." And, Mandy Patinkin's Saul will be "central" to the story.
"It's gonna be different next year. And you're going to see a different kind of story with Claire Danes. I don't know if it's going to be one-season story or two-season story. The Brody story trans-versed three seasons."
Homeland will return later this year on Showtime.
