Showtime exec reveals part of the plan for Homeland...

Spoiler warning: contains story information about Homeland's fourth season.

Homeland, which debuted to a great reception back in 2011, has been a consistent ratings hit for its network Showtime and we were steadfastly unsurprised when it was renewed for a fourth season. However, some viewers have expressed concerns about the plotting and the stretching of an initially very strong premise. Some of those questions were answered at the climax of season 3 (we won’t say how) and the show may move in a slightly different direction in season 4.

Speaking at the Winter Television Critics Association Tour, Showtime’s entertainment president David Nevins gave some clues as to what this direction may be and it’s rather Carrie-centric. ‘Homeland is a show that is deeply about a field operative’ he said, ‘and we haven’t seen her much in the field. In Season 3 you will likely see her on the ground in a foreign capital doing her job.’ It’s not just her though, Carrie’s fellow agent, Saul Berenson, will also continue to have a ‘central and important role’, said Nevins.

Homeland is expected to return later this year.

I have enjoyed 'Homeland' a lot, but season 3 ending would have been a great series ending.

boring, I don't know what people see in this. I couldn't sit out one season.

***********************************SPOILERS*********************************************************YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

Homeland went for the Game of Thrones/Walking Dead tactic of anyone can die anytime.

This works for got and wd because they have a massive cast and a veriety of intresting characters you care about.

Unfortunatly when you have a show that is pretty much carried by 1 person, and then you decide to kill them off you kill the show. Well done homeland in this case you have hung the shark.

For once, I'd like a studio to know when to call it a day. Some might say that series 3 wasn't the best, but I enjoyed it enough to want to see it to the end. But now that Brodie is dead and Saul is 'out,' I'm not interested in joining up for a 4th series. Just quit while you're ahead, guys.

As others have said, they should have really ended the series when Brody was hung at the end of season 3.
