Hello Claire fans! I just finished adding screen captures from the ten episodes of “Homeland” season seven which have already aired on TV. What are your thoughts on the season so far? There are only two episodes left now, “All in” set to air this Sunday on April 22, and the season finale “Paean to the People” on April 29. Make sure to tune in for the thrilling end to another great season…
Today we bring you some sad (but expected) news regarding Homeland. It has been announced by Claire herself that she show would end with Season 8, during an interview on SiriusXM. You can read the full article, posted by The Hollywood Reporter, and listen to the interview bellow!
As expected, Homeland will end with its upcoming eighth season.
Star Claire Danes has confirmed the news in an interview with Howard Stern on his Sirius XM show. “Yeah, that’s it,” she said when the host brought up the fact that the next season is rumored to be the drama’s last. A representative for Showtime said the network has not made a decision beyond season eight.
The network renewed Homeland for a seventh and eighth season ahead of its sixth season premiere. In February, series showrunner Alex Gansa told The Hollywood Reporter that season eight would likely be his last year — but noted he wasn’t sure that’d be the case for the others on the show.
“It’s definitely going to be my last year,” he explained. “I can’t speak for Claire or Mandy, but it will be my final year and it will be designed to be the end of an eight-season story. If Showtime, Fox, Claire and Mandy want to take the show further that’s their decision, and we would leave some room for that to happen — if there’s an appetite.”
When Stern asked Danes how she’s dealing with this being the last season, the actress acknowledged that she feels “really conflicted” about it. “I mean, I’ll be ready. She’s a lot, this Carrie-freakin’ Mathison character,” she explained. “It’s a workout, so I’ll be ready for a reprieve from that. During the interview, Danes also revealed that she’s pregnant with her second child with husband Hugh Dancy.
Showtime has released a video in which Claire talks about Homeland Season 7! I had been waiting to post this once I was done with the “renovations” on the show’s category of our gallery, but there are so many pictures that it’s probably going to take me a while. I’ve uploaded new posters to it, though! What I’m doing is reducing the amount of sub-categories to make it easier for you to browse through posters, photoshoots and stills. Seasons 1, 2 and 3 are already finished! I hope it looks better now.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 7th season of Homeland is set to film in Virginia, US. Alex Gansa, the showrunner, and Terry McAuliffe, current governor of Virginia, have released statements about the move, and you can read them below.
The Showtime drama is relocating production to Virginia for its upcoming seventh season. Filming will begin in the Richmond area this fall, with the network eyeing a 2018 premiere. The Emmy-winning drama starring Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin, which was renewed for seasons seven and eight last August, returned to the U.S. last year to film in New York after spending the two previous seasons shooting in South Africa and Berlin.
“We’re thrilled to bring the production of Homeland to the great state of Virginia. Its cities and neighborhoods and people will surely provide a rich backdrop for our story, and we in turn aim to provide a small but hopefully significant boost to the local economy,” said Alex Gansa, who serves as the showrunner and executive producer of the Fox 21 Television Studios series.
Claire and her Homeland co-star Mandy Patinkin have recently talked to Deadline about the additional resonance the show has taken on post-Trump, and their hopes for the series as it heads into its final two seasons. A new portrait was released with their interview, and you will find it in our photo gallery.
What were your first impressions when you read the scripts for Season 6?
Claire Danes: It’s interesting, because the writers started trying to anticipate what the outcome would be on Election Day, and what fate would be determined. They did an extraordinary job of creating a format that would sustain us throughout this period. We were waiting, and at the midway point [of production], Trump was elected, and suddenly, the themes became very clear, and they pursued that. I think the season just collected momentum and strength as it went along. I marvel at their ability to surf these phenomena as they’re occurring, almost in real time.
I imagine a good deal of the arc must have been outlined before you began shooting the season.
Danes: Yeah, they have a pretty sound sense of how we’re going to start, but invariably, they get outpaced by filming, and they end up writing as we film. It’s a high wire act.
Mandy Patinkin: They stay fairly flexible, and it is fluid. They certainly have a clear structure, where Claire would be working, the nature of her job, and defending this young man, and what would happen to the young man. But then, as the world around us changed very quickly, they went with the world, not with previous conceptions…
Danes: …Adapted to that tack.
Patinkin: Yeah. I like that way of not having everything in front of us.
Claire as Carrie Mathison
Post-production ― January 2018 HOMELAND is an edge-of-your-seat sensation. CIA officer Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) is tops in her field despite being bipolar, which makes her volatile and unpredictable. With the help of her long-time mentor Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin), Carrie fearlessly risks everything, including her personal well-being and even sanity, at every turn. You won't be able to turn away from this gripping, emotional thriller in which nothing short of the fate of our nation is at stake.
Brigsby Bear (2017)
Claire as Clare Brigsby Bear Adventures is a low-budget children's TV show produced for an audience of one, James. When the show abruptly ends, James realizes that everything about his life is a lie, and he must learn to cope with the realities of a new world that he knows nothing about.
