Tv Season Info

In the final season, Carrie Mathison is recovering from brutal confinement in a Russian gulag. Her body is healing, but her memory remains fractured. This is a problem for Saul, National Security Advisor to President Warner, who has been dispatched to engage the Taliban in Afghanistan peace negotiations. But Kabul teems with warlords and mercenaries, zealots and spies -- and Saul needs the relationships and expertise that only his protégé can provide. Against medical advice, Saul asks Carrie to walk with him into the lion's den -- one last time.

Critic Reviews for Homeland Season 8

Fine, sharp opener to what already feels like a tragic climax.

Lesli Linka Glatter returns for the first two episodes... and, for as much credit as she rightly gets for her beautifully staged and tensely cut action sequences, the performances she evokes in a still or slightly shifting frame are incredible.

This may be the end, but only a brave man would bet against her return.

It was a sharp opening episode... It's great to see such a complex character on television. If only we knew whether to trust her.

Apr 27, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's been a swansong befitting of a character who'll be missed -- a character who, until her final hour, has been one of television's all-time greats.

Apr 27, 2020 | Full Review…

Taking plenty of dramatic license, Homeland has always put a spotlight on how the decisions, the feints and the gut calls made by nameless operatives in the field can avert disaster and change the course of history.

Apr 27, 2020 | Full Review…

Homeland has been an exceptional drama, perfectly capturing our anxiety about omnipotent nutters...

May 4, 2020 | Full Review…

Homeland has been one of the most consistently entertaining series in this new golden age of television.

Apr 30, 2020 | Full Review…

The pacing for the whole season was completely off, an issue that became far more of a problem as Carrie and Saul returned to America.

Apr 28, 2020 | Full Review…

Setting the stage before the final curtain, Homeland and Claire Danes have reminded audiences why we were so enraptured when it first debuted nearly 10 years ago.

Apr 27, 2020 | Full Review…

It's hard to say that later Homeland is "better" than those chaotic early years, but mentor-mentee friction between Carrie and Saul was worth sticking around for. And [the finale] was, above all else, a satisfying pay-off to that relationship.

Apr 27, 2020 | Full Review…

For all its lurid overacting and preposterous plots, I'll miss Homeland when it's over.

    Awesome! don't understand how some tv gets 100% and this amazing show doesn't. You need to ask yourself who are these odd TV reviewers.
  • May 25, 2020
    Wow. Absolutely brilliant writing. Sad that this was the end.
  • May 23, 2020
    Best final season ever best final episode ever. Claire and Mandy do what they've always done since day 1 carry thus shiw on their backs right to the very last season ??
  • May 21, 2020
    All the spy antics, foreign affairs and political backbiting you could hope for. A joyride from start to finish that completely sticks the landing.
  • May 18, 2020
    Homeland's final season gets back to the qualities that made it so great in the first place, with thrilling espionage encounters and contemplations on foreign policy. The season concludes with a fitting finale that succeeds in pleasing fans of the show.
  • May 15, 2020
    Excellent finale and a great final season. Starts a bit slow but it does get its geopolitical groove fast. Carrie and Saul often at odds but both in great form and the return of SVR spook Gromor delivers in troves!
  • May 15, 2020
    An amazing ending that left me smiling in the very last scene. One of my favorite shows ever. 8 years of thrilling acting and storylines.
  • May 08, 2020
    One of the greatest miniseries ever produced. The writing is tremendous and the performances by the cast were always 5 star.
  • May 06, 2020
    The perfect ending to the show
