'Homeland' to End After Season 8, Showtime Confirms

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.

Nevertheless, Showtime, the American TV network that airs the hit series, has confirmed that after the upcoming eighth season, "Homeland" is no more. Although details on the season are scarce - we don't yet know where the new season will film, for instance - the most recent season of Homeland concluded with Carrie (Danes) and her bestie Saul (Mandy Patinkin) reuniting after the former was held captive in Russian Federation for seven months.

Although the series is coming to an end in June 2019, Nevins stressed to reporters that "It's not a cancellation".

[Exec producer] Alex Gansa will be bringing this show, which has won eight Emmys and five Golden Globes, to its proper conclusion.

"Homeland" is not "limping into the sunset", Gary Levine, Showtime's president of programming, emphasized, according to USA Today.

Showtime president and CEO David Nevins made the announcement at the TCA summer press tour on Monday, noting that "Alex [Gansa] and Claire [Danes] both started talking about it last season".

Last season, Carrie struggled to uncover an worldwide conspiracy trying to harm America's democratic institutions.

'I am pregnant. I'm like seriously preggo, ' she told host Stern, adding 'I'm deep into my second trimester'.

The farewell season will begin production early next year and is set to debut in 2019.
