After last night’s somewhat expected, but still haunting, finale, there are going to be some changes to the Homeland roster. (SPOILERS, I SAID!) Since the execution of Nicholas Brody, it’s safe to say that he won’t be coming back or making any appearances, save for the odd flashback or something.

Also, it’s being reported that the actresses that play Dana, his daughter, and Jessica, his wife, won’t be on as series regulars anymore. There’s nothing said of Chris Brody, who was never a series regular, but it’s safe to say that he’s not coming back either, but mostly because no one wanted him around in the first place.

Homeland has been picked up by Showtime for a fourth season. Insiders claim that the pickup is no surprise, citing [REDACTED] and the highest [REDACTED] the show has ever seen. Masters of [REDACTED] was also picked up for another season, probably because it had lot so of scenes of people [FUCKING].

The premiere of the next season will be on a need-to-know basis, and audiences aren’t told this far out in advance in consideration of their own safety. It’s important to stay vigilant in your watching of Homeland, as the enemy could be right in front of you, portraying a good-looking assassin, a handsome ginger veteran, or possibly even a crazy blonde girl, just like that one you dated in college. Right after you caught [REDACTED] cheating on you with Trent.

‘Homeland’ Viewership Shot Up 26% Over Season 2 Premiere, ‘Breaking Bad’ Be Damned http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/homeland-viewership-shot-up-26-over-season-2-premiere-breaking-bad-be-damned/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/homeland-viewership-shot-up-26-over-season-2-premiere-breaking-bad-be-damned/#comments Mon, 30 Sep 2013 18:48:39 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=257307 It's all in the interest of national security.

The post ‘Homeland’ Viewership Shot Up 26% Over Season 2 Premiere, ‘Breaking Bad’ Be Damned appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Despite going up the same night as what may have been the most anticipated TV event in a decade, Homeland was able to improve on its season 2 premiere, with the season 3 kickoff improving 9% in live viewership, and 26% when audiences factored in other viewing methods. Further, it’s likely that even more viewers will hunker down with the show in the coming days, meaning that Homeland is kicking as strong as ever.

No plot points to be given away here, but it will be interesting to see how the audience deals with a shakeup that leaves Brody out of the first two episodes entirely, and keeps him at bay for most of the season. Of course, if you haven’t caught the episode yet, you can watch it right here, right now.

Showtime has a sort of established practice of putting up the first one or two episodes of their shows on YouTube every season. And…they did it with Homeland last night, lest you were unavailable to watch it, and forgot that DVR exists.

Nonetheless, it’s out there, it takes another surprising turn, and it looks like the dynamic between Brody and Carrie has once again been turned on his head.

I’d say more, but then what would be the point of watching this episode that Showtime was nice enough to give to us for free?

I’ve yet to see an episode of Showtime’s Homeland which, I know, makes me bad at being white. So please forgive me if this post is bereft of inside jokes and nods to the show. Instead let’s just focus on how Homeland killed at the Emmy’s and can’t possibly be any worse than the finale of Dexter.

To recap, Claire Danes just took home her second Emmy for Best Actress in a Drama for her role as Crying Woman In Pantsuit, while the show itself won for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series. So tune in THIS SUNDAY, September 29th at 9pm ET/PT to wash the bad taste of Dexter out of your mouth. Only on Showtime.

Judging from this long, emotionally exhausting trailer, we see that the folks from Homeland are recovering from just about everything that’s rocked them over the past two seasons. Brody’s family is more or less in mourning, Carrie’s heartbroken, Saul is playing his usual Eeyore self, and Brody’s a man on the move.

I’m not too eager to share my thoughts on the plot of season three because a) who the hell knows, and b) I don’t want to spoil anything for those who aren’t caught up. So watch the trailer and see if you can make some sense of what’s going on.

Today in news that has probably been assumed since the Emmys a few weeks ago, Homeland has gotten picked up for a third season. The order is for the now-industry-standard 12 episodes, which is a number that comfort us with its familiarity. Conversely, an 11-episode pickup would have angered and confused us to such a degree that we couldn’t reasonably be held accountable for our actions. Ditto for 13 episodes.

The news comes after Sunday’s most-watched-ever episode, which garnered 1.75 million viewers, which fell just short of Dexter‘s 1.9 million that night.

The news of this renewal, while not surprising, comes as great news for fans of great television, and also Claire Danes‘ agent, who probably has been long overdue for a payday.

With last season’s finale leaving us with electro-shock therapy and treason of the highest order, last night’s Homeland season two premiere was widely anticipated…by those who had Showtime. Those who didn’t had to wallow in their own envy and self-pity.

Until now.

Taking cues from high school drug dealers the world over, Showtime has magnanimously offered “the first one’s on us,” posting last night’s episode on YouTube so that any yahoo with an Internet connection can watch the show and see what the fuss is about.

Their gesture also allows self-serving websites like Screen Junkies to embed the video in our site, tricking the most gullible readers into thinking that we’re somehow the reason they get to see Homeland for free.

It works out pretty well for everyone.

Enjoy.

Last night’s Emmys managed to give almost everything away to Homeland, as the Showtime national security drama scored wins for Best Drama Series, Best Actor in a Drama Series, Best Actress in a Drama series, and Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series. You can find our breakdown of all the major categories, sans pithy commentary, right here.

While the relatively under-the-radar show certainly deserves accolades, it was a bit of a surprise to see the freshman series bowl over the likes of it take out Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Game of Thrones in most of the major categories. I say “most,” because Aaron Paul was able to score the Best Supporting trophy.

That’s the good news.

The bad news is that the Emmy board thinks that Jon Cryer is the best comedic TV actor in the world, which totally undoes all the progress we as a civilization have made since the Magna Carta.

They also thought that all four-grown up men in Modern Family were better supporting actors than Nick Offerman, who didn’t even get nominated.

Aside from those two abortions, the list is pretty unobjectionable from where we sit. But still…Jon Cryer?

Everyone was expecting Mad Men to walk away with the gold for the fifth time after the show returned to an exceptionally strong season. However, now everyone looks incredibly dumb for expecting that. Freshman series Homeland snuck up behind the AMC drama in the cafeteria and pantsed it for all to see. Then star Damien Lewis snickered while Claire Danes made a tiny gesture with his fingers and Mandy Patinkin stroked his beard menacingly.

Also of note, Tom Berenger took home a statue for his work in Hatfield & McCoys, while Tom Bergeron won for his hosting duties on Dancing With The Stars. Truly a great night for performers with easily-confused names.

Terror has a new enemy and her name is Claire Danes. In the teaser for Showtime‘s “Homeland,” Danes stars as a CIA somebody keeping tabs on the Damian Lewis‘ recently-released prisoner of war. America regards him as a hero after his crappy stay with the Taliban, but Danes is afraid he could be the ultimate sleeper agent. After all, nobody would ever expect a redhead could be an extremist. Will she be able to uncover his so-called terrorist life?

The teaser has everything you’d expect: torture, surveillance, gnarly beards, politicians, and of course, secret meet-ups on park benches. The CIA should really get around to putting microphones in park benches.

What a lazy dog.

Between “Band On Brothers” and “Life,” Damian Lewis has built a pretty good following. Now he’s set to star in the new Showtime series “Homeland.” He’ll portray a marine who returns home after being held captive in Baghdad for close to ten years. But, a CIA agent played by the totally-believable-as-a-CIA-agent Claire Danes suspects he is planning an attack against the United States.

Definitely sounds promising. With Dexter,” “Californication,” Weeds,” “United States Of Tara,” and “Nurse Jackie,” Showtime always builds really intriguing casts and this one is no exception. Well, I mean the leads. Showtime always casts intriguing actors in lead roles. Ignore the supporting characters. Especially the ones who play the daughters. (Deadline)
