After almost a decade long of storytelling, the political thriller Homeland has finally wrapped up. The whole cast is overwhelmed and highly grateful to their fans for supporting them for all these years.
Over these years, Homeland has been shot in three different continents.
It has not only claimed hearts of the viewers but the critics too as it won two Golden Globes. In that same year, the leading cast, Claire Dane and Damian Lewis won Primetime Emmy Award.
The Plot of Homeland Season 9
The show takes off with Carrie Mathison, a Central Intelligence Agency officer, having her doubts about the U.S. Marine Corps Scout Sniper, Nicholas Brody. She suspects the sniper, who was a hostage of al-Qaeda for years, has compromised with his loyalty towards his country.
A large part of the series features Carrie working with her mentor, Saul Berenson, who is the CIA Division Chief.
The final season of the Showtime series aired between February 9, 2020, and April 26, 2020, covering 12 episodes. It introduced an unexpected twist in the story when Mathison was assigned to assassinate her mentor. The audience was glad when she decided otherwise and became a Russian spy for him instead.
However, the Russians soon discover and captivate her. After staying in their prison for around 200 days, she is rescued, but her integrity is questioned.
Will Homeland air Season 9?
When Howard Gordon, one of the creators, was asked if the show has ended, he replied, “Never say never”.
“Who knows what will happen in five or six years, but at the moment, I feel like you have seen the last of [Carrie]”.
Gordon seems to drop a subtle hint right there. We can conclude that the series may have ended for now but its true status remains iffy. Chances are we may be treated with another season later in the future. Or maybe a spin-off? Stay with us to find out.
