‘Homeland’ season 4 preview: Mandy Patinkin, what’s next for Carrie, possible October return

Fans of Showtime’s hit show Homeland begins a new journey without star Damian Lewis as Brody is no more.

Brody’s death seems pretty ironclad, but is there possibility that Brody could appear in a flashback or some other contrived idea by the writers, but that’s not the focus for the show.

Mandy Patinkin claire Danes Showtime Homeland season 4Producer Alex Gansa spoke with both Variety and E! Online about the plans for season 4 which confirmed Saul (Mandy Patinkin) is definitely coming back as a series regular, although he’ll be in the private contractors circle, not at his desk at Langley.

Carrie (Claire Danes) is going to have to deal with the child. “We never thought she was going to have a miscarriage or have an abortion. This child is how Brody spiritually remains in the show,” Gansa said, referring to Brody dying the season 3 finale.

Javadi (Shaun Taub) could come back and play a major role. “One of the great things about season to season is how much time passes. We could jump ahead quite far — or not. And all those decisions will reverberate, and one of those is whether Javadi will come back and play a major role in season 4, or is there some new challenge Carrie will have to confront.”

Dana and Jessica could appear in a few episodes. “Carrie might circle back and connect with one of them for this reason or that — the main reason being to inform them exactly why and how Brody died, which right now has to be kept as a very tightly held secret.”

Homeland season 4 premiere date has been unclear ever since the last episode of season 3 aired on December 15, 2013, but The Epoch Times reports that Google has it listed as October 19, 2014.

The air date on Google is October 19, 2014.
