In the eighth and final season of Showtime’s Homeland, Carrie Mathieson (Claire Danes) preps for anything and everything and she embarks on her deadliest mission yet.
That’s the premise for Showtime’s new teaser, “One Last Mission,” which sees the CIA operative using her skills to assist Saul (Mandy Patkin) despite medical advice, hazardous conditions and a lack of trust.
“You’re somewhere between a rogue agent and a national security threat,” Saul says in the spot.
This season will feature a spin on the series’ original story as Carrie steps into Nicholas Brody’s shoes, stars and creators revealed during winter TCA earlier this month.
“That’s the first big part of the season,” creator Alex Gansa said. “The second big part is the real resolution of the primal story of ‘Homeland,’ which is the relationship of a mentor and protege, between Saul and Carrie. That’s what you’ll see resolved by the end of the 12 episodes.”
The eighth and final season of Homeland premieres Feb. 9 at 9/8c.
