PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — “Homeland” fans will have to wait longer than expected for the start of the last season.
Showtime said that the drama’s planned return in June has been pushed back to fall.
The complexity of production is the reason for the season-eight delay, Showtime entertainment president Gary Levine said Wednesday.
Claire Danes stars in “Homeland,” which has taken her bipolar, now former CIA agent Carrie through dangerous conflicts that sometimes mirrored real-world events.
