The First 'Homeland' Season 4 Trailer Is A Giant Reset Button For Series

After teasing season 4 earlier this week, the first new trailer for “Homeland” is here.

If you dropped out of the Showtime series because the show was starting to become more of a soap opera between Brody (Damian Lewis) and Carrie (Claire Danes) than a CIA operative, it looks like producers have finally hit the reset button.

At the TCAs (Television Critics Association), producers announced the show will primarily focus on Carrie Mathison in Pakistan with Brody’s daughter and family not returning.

“Homeland” returns to Showtime Sunday, October 5, in the US.
