In 2016, “Homeland” was renewed for three seasons through its eighth season.
Showtime President David Nevins said on Monday the plan was not, at the time, for Season 8 to be its last. Discussions about ending the show became more serious after production on Season 7 concluded, he said.
Season 8, which will have 12 episodes, is slated to premiere in June 2019. Production is set to begin in early 2019.
