The Hollywood Reporter reports Showtime has ordered a second season of "Homeland" the intense espionage drama starring Claire Danes, Damian Lewis and Mandy Patinkin. Great show and if you're recording it you now know it will go another season.

Excellent news. This show is great, IMO.

Excellent series. Something of a 24 I feel, for the fans of that series.

Yep, it is one that I try to watch within 24-36 hours and even the same night in some cases. Dexter is one of the few I watch that fast and usually live so it is right up there with that to me.

I watched the first episode because of the cast and I'm glad I did. Great series.

I assume that the Brody storyline will likely wrap this season -- be curious to know how they plan on handling subsequent seasons. Whether new cast members are introduced or existing cast members are used in a different capacity. Anyway, great news on the renewal -- this is an excellent show.

I don't think they'll wrap the Brody storyline at all. I bet he gets into a serious political office, president maybe, and works from the inside.

President? The show would lose an awful lot of credibility if that happened.

Great news about the renewal, but ..

Please don't post any spoilers in this thread or post discussion of the program's plots!

I've only watched up to episode 3 and the title of this thread isn't spoiler inclusive.

Without giving anything away (and risk getting in trouble with Drew ;)), there is no way that someone in his current condition, and in his current state of mind, could ever be a serious candidate for any serious political office, forget President. He would last 5 minutes before the press ate him alive.

I hope you're right. If the creative team can keep the "mystery" of Brody compelling beyond this season, I'm all for it. I think Damien Lewis is doing a great job with the role and at a minimum, I'd like to see him return in some capacity.

I didn't watch the spoiler but for those that don't think the story could go that way.......didn't we just have a former P.O.W. run for Pres a few years ago? ;)
