‘Homeland’ Season 2 Preview
No new footage but there are spoilers if you haven’t finished watching Season 1! You can download the teaser from our media archive here. More on Season 2 from TVLine:
The Season 2 premiere of Showtime’s acclaimed Homeland is still more than five months away (on Sept. 30), but this early intel on what’s coming up, courtesy of showrunner Alex Gansa, is burning a hole in our digital pocket. Plus, you may find it interesting to learn that someone you thought was out of the mix in fact is still in it, perhaps more so than ever.
Picking up about six months after the events of the Season 1 finale — that is, Brody’s failed attempt on the lives of Vice President Walden and his inner circle, followed by frustrated Carrie’s submission to shock treatment to cure what mentally ails her — Gansa says Season 2 will kick off with big questions such as, “How’s Carrie’s rehabilitation? What’s up with Saul? What’s up with Brody and his wife, his political career?”
Tackling that first topic, Gansa says viewers will see “right away” how Carrie gets back involved with the investigation into Abu Nazir and his master plan, whatever that might now be — despite the fact that, having copped to mental illness, 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 realization 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 2, I can’t tell you.”
In the meantime, the exec producer shares, “Carrie has willed herself into a place of mental health, so she’s very different from where she was last year.”
