Good News, Ginger Haters, You'll Be Seeing A Whole Lot Less Of This Guy In Season 3 Of "Homeland"

By Joanna Robinson | Trade News | July 30, 2013 | Comments ()


Despite unjustly* winning the Emmy last year for his portrayal of Sergeant Brody, Damian Lewis won’t be at the forefront of Season 3 of Showtime’s “Homeland.” At least not initially. In a recent panel at the TCAs (Television Critics Association), the showrunners for “Homeland” revealed that Brody’s whereabouts would remain a mystery for the first few episodes of the Season. Frankly, it’s a rather bold tack to take and heralds some of the brash storytelling that made Season 1 so enjoyable and was sorely lacking in Season 2. Even Lewis conceded the necessity to “be ruthless with story and character.”

This completely oblique teaser for Season 2 implies a few things…

1) We’ll be seeing less of this.

2) We’ll be seeing a whiole lot more of this.

3) And, fingers crossed, even more of this.

*You’re damn right. Nobody, but nobody beats Cranston.

6 Old Plot Points That Still Make My Blood Boil | Death in the City of Light by David King

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Mel C.

    This is excellent news, and I may actually watch S3 now. At least for the first few episodes.

  • Annoyed ginger

    Wow, if this article said 'Good news Misogynists, female actor is no longer in show' Pajiba would have been the first to call bullshit and shame the author.

    Luckily, repeatedly mocking people with a certain hair colour isn't discriminatory, it's just funny

  • googergieger

    So the only reason to watch Homeland isn't going to be seen the first few episodes? Okay.

  • Three_nineteen

    IIRC, Brody was supposed to either die or get arrested (and leave the show) at the end of the first season. But he was so popular that the showrunners kept him around, and of course then didn't know what to do with him. Hopefully they have better plan for Brody when they bring him back again, or they just cut Damien Lewis loose so he can get a better job (yes, I didn't like the second season that much). Then Carrie can finally figure out that Saul is the mole (c'mon, you know it has to be him) and then the Patink can leave and I can stop watching.

  • AudioSuede

    The second season was deeply flawed, yes, and some of the plot points were outright stupid. But there were some amazing twists, and the actors did a great job with the material they were given. Obviously Damian Lewis can never be Cranston, but he by no means did a bad job.

  • hickoryduck

    Brody should just stay hidden or dead or whatever. Fuck that guy.

  • foca9

    I liked the continuous tension in the first season, and didn't really like the second season. Now I've started watching the Israeli original, and it's much better, in my opinion. While the American is action-driven (hope that's a word), the Israeli is “pure” drama. Love that. Excited to see how their second season is.

    Agree on BB and Cranston as well.

  • ZizoAH

    Oh god, the Israeli original is HORRIBLE.

    I couldn't handle it for more that half a season, it was ridiculous.

  • koko temur

    yeah, we have enough action down there as it is :)

  • foca9

    Hahahahhahaha, good one :)

  • Jim

    But...but... I like gingers. Trouble is I let'em get away with murder. (Hence I'm not allowed to be left alone with our landlord. True Story.)

  • basse buus

    Other news that sort of helps:

    Mads Mikkelsen's brother Lars Mikkelsen is joining Sherlock

    He looks a lot like Mads, and is really good actor

  • zeke_the_pig

    Good news for us Damian Lewis (AKA The Smuggest Face in Television) haters too.
    And who is that Evil Orlando Bloom at the end?

  • rio

    Jesus, I loved the first half of season 2, but when they went back on the carrie -brody romance train I was out, and sorry more Carrie and more Mr. Wickham? Do you actually mean more SAUL???????? Cause that's all I want to see, until the end of times. make him the maul, make him the head of all the terrorist and all the government, make him king of the universe. And Carrie can finally get her head out of her pussy and go back to be kickass.

  • L.O.V.E.

    All I'm going to say is if Brody's daughter ends up getting caught in a cougar trap or kidnapped this season I'm out.

  • ZizoAH

    Dad? Dad, are you here? Is that you, dad? What is happening dad? Dad?

  • Megan

    Yeah Cranston is definitely the one who knocks.

  • sean

    Or killing Carrie off. And making it the Saul runs the CIA show.

  • toblerone

    But Carrie is the mole. Can't kill her off without before that reveal. Also when we get Brody it will be sans Ginger top.

    I just want this show back, I've missed it so much.

  • koko temur

    he is one of the only senior CIA guys who wasn't killed at that blast, i assume this season will be mostly him rebuilding the CIA while Carrie cries a lot. 50% isn't bad, no?

  • abby725

    just as Rebecca answered I'm shocked that some people can earn $5924 in one month on the computer. did you read this page w­w­w.K­E­P­2.c­o­m

  • Judge_Snyder

    A lot less contrived stupidity wouldn't go amiss either.
