No surprise to hear that Homeland has been renewed for a third season.
The US drama, based on an Israeli format, took the top Emmy Awards last month.
The third season will consist of 12 one-hour episodes, with production set to begin in the US spring. Among the questions as the series moves ahead is whether the six-member writing staff, which Fox 21 president Bert Salke has dubbed a “murderer’s row”, will remain intact.
“The Emmy wins for Homeland have certainly set the stage for a great second season,” said Showtime Networks president of entertainment David Nevins, who ordered the show within days of taking the job in 2010. “The writers, cast and crew of Homeland continue to create a remarkably entertaining and suspenseful roller-coaster ride, growing audiences week after week. We can’t wait for our viewers to experience what unfolds through the rest of season two.”
