Showtime president David Nevins announced in 2018 that Homeland was coming to an end in 2020 and that Season 8 would be the last. The decision to end the series was mutually made by Executive Producer Alex Gansa and lead actress Claire Danes, TV Line reports.

“Alex and Claire both started talking about it towards the end of last season,” Nevins  announced at the time. “I asked, ‘Are you sure? Let’s think about it.’ But when they were resolved, it seemed like it was the right time. The two of them finally made the decision.”

The series finale was written by staff writers Nick Leith Baker and Jonathan Redding and directed by Lesli Linka Glatter, who has directed 25 hours of Homeland over the years, including some of the most highly rated episodes, such as Season 2’s “Q&A.” In addition to series regulars Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin, Russian master spy Yevgeny and Pakistani agent Tasneem Qureshi will also appear in the finale as cast members Costa Ronin and Nimrat Kaur, according to Den of Geek.
