‘Homeland’ season 4 will have a ‘huge reset,’ Mandy Patinkin confirmed to be ‘central’

After the shocking conclusion to the third season of Homeland, Showtime president David Nevins spoke about what fans can expect in season 4.

“Well, they’re deeply immersed right now.  Obviously, there’s a big reset,” Nevins said to Collider.

“I know that this is a show that is fundamentally about a field operative, and with the exception of the very beginning of Season 1 and the very end of Season 3, we haven’t seen her much out in the field, operating.  So, the likely plan for next year is that you will see her on the ground in a foreign capital, doing her job.”

The creative team is hard at work and Nevins says they are visiting Washington.

“I haven’t had much presented yet, and those guys are working right now.  They’re going to spend a week in Washington, and they’ve got an amazing itinerary.  They’re being set up on the top floor of a CIA club, and they’re going to be spending a lot of time with real people.  There are a couple of things that they’re working on, so we’ll see what comes back in a month.”

Nevins confirms the involvement and role of Mandy Patinkin to be “central,” before addressing the criticisms of season 3.

“There are certain things that didn’t surprise me.  I thought this season was pretty brilliant in its architecture.  They started on this story about Iran and the audacity of regime change in Iran before Rouhani was even elected, and certainly before we knew about the talks that were going on between the Obama administration and Rouhani’s administration.  So, I thought it was very clever and very audacious, what they set out to do.  I thought it was a really interesting season.  But, we always knew that we were heading to a major reset.”
