Season two many still be five months away, but for obsessed fans (such as myself), it's never too early to get some early scoop on what we can expect when Homeland returns this September.
As season one came to a close, Brody's failed assassination attempt on the vice president opened up the door for him to embark on a political path and Carrie underwent shock treatment for her bipolar disorder... just as she pieced together that Brody knew Abu Nazir's son, who had been killed during a U.S. military strike outside their home.
When season two returns this fall, showrunner Alex Gansa told TV Line that six months have passed and Carrie is no closer to getting back into the CIA, but she does appear to be on the mend mentally. Of course, this certainly doesn't mean she isn't still on the case - she is very much in the mix without the involvement of the CIA. Carrie won't be alone in her investigation into Brody once Mike (Brody's former best friend) gets his hands on the report about the assassination attempt and realizes some things don't quite add up.
Jamey Sheridan (V.P. Walden) and Navid Nagahban (Abu Nazir) have been promoted to series regulars this season, so viewers can expect to see much more of these characters. Gansa said of Nazir, "He does factor in a major way this year."
Season two of Homeland premieres on September 30 on Showtime.
