US drama Homeland will end with its upcoming eighth season, according to star Claire Danes.
Appearing on The Howard Stern Show this week, Stern told Danes, “Now we’ve got one more season after this and then we’re wrapping it up….How do we feel about this?”
“Really conflicted,” Danes acknowledged. “I’ll be ready for a reprieve from that,” adding, “She’s a lot, this Carrie-freakin’ Mathison character.”
Homeland was given a two-season renewal in 2016 ahead of the season six premiere but it has been widely expected the series would come to a conclusion following season eight.
Showrunner Alex Gansa has previously said, “I can’t speak for Claire or [co-star] Mandy [Patinkin], but it will be my final year and it will be designed to be the end of an eight-season story.”
Showtime told Variety that the network has not made a decision beyond season eight.
SBS is currently screening season seven in Australia.
