It is a mantra repeated by many that several of America’s finest series’ have overdone it. Now this has reached a-whole-nother level insofar as a third series of a show is seen as simply establishing the characters with many more expected to come. Some TV shows, such as the once great family comedy The Simpsons – currently on its 24th season – don’t seem to grasp the concept that you can indeed have too much of a good thing.
The first series of Homeland saw a multitude of twists and turns, with each episode as good as the previous edition. The clearly intertwined mixture of narrative strands was well-worked to say the least; the love affair of Brody and Carrie, the tension between David and Saul and the search for Abu Nazir – all were equally as captivating as each other. After 12 episodes of sheer genius, award-worthy acting and enthralling writing, many viewers were left drooling at the prospect of a second season. Showtime obliged.
The second installment saw a different diegesis to the precedent, it was arguably becoming more far-fetched with certain plot points lacking plausibility. However, Homeland once again racked up many awards and universal acclaim from critics – the high expectations from fans of the US drama were essentially met. There was potential that the show could have steered clear of the ongoings between the CIA and terrorist groups, the suspicions about Brody being a terrorist and Carrie’s struggle to become reinstated into the job she is so passionate about. Rather, they could have opted for a focus on the love affair between a bipolar sufferer and an alleged bomber. Luckily, that doesn’t seem to be the case. Homeland executive Alex Gansa claimed that the Showtime show’s next series will be “smaller scale”,
“I think all of us on the writing staff would rather not do an impending attack that Carrie stops for the third year in a row”

You’ve likely been waiting with baited breath for information on “Homeland” season 3, and now one of TV’s best is getting ready to finally start up production in North Carolina. With that, some details are starting to finally come out, including the title for the September 29 season premiere.
According to a report from SpoilerTV, the episode will be called “Tin Man Is Down.” As for what this means, your guess is as good as ours. The easy connection here is of course to the “Wizard of Oz,” with the character that is so desperately in need of a heart. Who’s the most heartless person in this show’s universe? In the eyes of some, possibly Nicholas Brody. If you wanted to try to deduce something based off of the obvious, you would probably get that the episode could revolve around the government somehow trying to convince the public that Brody is no longer a threat … but we really believe that this title is probably about something so much more than this.

"Obviously we have to deal with that very climactic last episode. All bets are off with the Brody family [Nicholas is presumably not going back] and where Carrie lands after this is the big question."
The producers were so set on casting Claire Danes as Carrie that her character in the original script was called Clare (Maria Bello and Kerry Washington were among the other names that came up). But Brody – played by Damian Lewis – was more difficult, says Gordon.
"Because Brody is such a cipher people didn't know quite who he was and had lots of different ideas about what he might look like and how he might act. [Damian] just did it brilliantly."
