‘Homeland’: Claire Danes Says Series Will End With Season 8

Homeland” will end with its upcoming eighth season, according to its star Claire Danes.

Appearing on “The Howard Stern Show” Wednesday, Danes indicated that the Showtime drama’s next season would be its last.

“Now we’ve got one more season after this and then we’re wrapping it up,” Stern told Danes in the interview, to which Danes responded, “Yeah.” When Stern asked, “How do we feel about this?” Danes replied, “Really conflicted.” She added, “I’ll be ready for a reprieve from that,” noting that her character, Carrie Mathison, is “a lot.”

Post-production on season seven of “Homeland” ended last week. The season finale is set to air April 29 on Showtime.

“Homeland” was given a two-season renewal by Showtime in 2016 ahead of the season-six premiere. It has been widely expected that the series would come to a conclusion following season eight.

“Homeland” was developed for American television by Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon, and is based on the original Israeli series Prisoners of War by Gideon Raff. Along with Gansa and Gordon, the executive producers for season six will be Chip Johannessen, Lesli Linka Glatter, Patrick Harbinson, Michael Klick, Gideon Raff, Avi Nir and Ran Telem.

The series is the recipient of 10 Primetime Emmy Awards, including two for Danes as best actress in a drama series.

A representative for Showtime told Variety that the network has not made a decision beyond season eight.
