Homeland executive producer Alex Gansa has shared some new Intel. on the highly-anticipated second season of the Showtime serial.
As we previously reported, Homeland‘s second season will begin some time after the events in the finale — 6 months, in fact — with several big questions dominating the return:
- Carrie’s rehab?
- What’s the deal with Saul?
- Brody and his wife, his political career?
Despite her credibility taking a knock following her presumed imaginings over Brody’s planned attack on the Vice President and his inner circle, Gansa notes that Carrie will work her way back in from the fringes as the investigation into Abu Nazir continues:
“It would have been too far a jump to bring her back into the fold full bore. However, there are ways that she can work around the edges of the intelligence community that make sense.”
On whether Carrie will ever regain her memory and realize she was right about Brody’s threat:
“There’s a tremendous sense out there in the audience of wanting Carrie to know that she was right, that she’s not crazy and is really good at what she does, and that’s the moment we’re going to be building towards. Whether it’s going to happen in Season 2, I can’t tell you.”
“[Walden] is the object of Brody’s fury and was the man he was trying to kill, so any time you put those two characters together, it’s a very interesting dynamic. We wanted to keep that alive in the second season. [Abu Nazir meanwhile,] does factor in in a major way this year.” [editor's note: In Season 1, Nazir's appearances were limited to video and flashbacks].
