In the show's tradition of importing a slew of new guest stars for each season, we'll be seeing Colin Hanks, Edward James Olmos, and Mos Def for what I'm sure will be varying lengths of time.

Starring Claire Danes as a CIA case officer who suspects that a war hero who has just been freed after eight years of captivity in Afghanistan is a sleeper agent for Al Qaeda.
