Producer defends ‘Homeland’ season 3 story, Carrie’s pregnancy

 Fans may be becoming a bit restless with the new events on Homeland during its third season.

During an interview with THR, executive producer Alex Gansa addressed the backlash over several storylines, including Carrie’s pregnancy, asking fans to hang in there a bit longer.

That said, it’s great that people are so passionate about the show, and it’s great that people are talking about it. It’s great we’re getting the best numbers we’ve ever had. All that accrues to the benefits of ‘Homeland,'” he said. “We’re just working as hard as we can to make it as compelling, entertain and true to the characters as we can. That’s what we’re doing, and it’s for other people to judge.”

Now the season is in the second phase, Gansa explains a bit of what’s ahead.

“Once we realized that Saul and Carrie had a play to lure Javadi [Shaun Toub] out of Iran, and to turn him, this was really that play. It was how they brought him into the country, how they turned him, how they integrated him, how they sent them back and ultimately the tantalizing piece of information that he left with Carrie about Brody’s innocence.”

Saul’s tenure as CIA director was also discussed.

“Senator Lockhart’s [Tracy Letts] confirmation hearings are coming up, and he’s a shoo-in to be confirmed. He will shortly become the director of central intelligence. Saul knows, because of their huge philosophical divide about the future of the agency, that he has to get this operation up and running before Lockhart comes in. Otherwise, he’ll put the brakes on the whole thing for him. The fact that Brody is in such bad shape is a huge setback for him.”
