Showtime’s political drama “Homeland” has been picked up for a third season, David Nevins, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc announced earlier today.
The Emmy-wining drama was renewed for a third season of 12 episodes. According to the network, season three will begin production spring 2013.
“The Emmy wins for “Homeland” have certainly set the stage for a great second season,” said Nevins. “The writers, cast and crew of “Homeland” continue to create a remarkably entertaining and suspenseful roller coaster ride, growing audiences week after week. We can’t wait for our viewers to experience what unfolds through the rest of season two. Our partners at Fox 21 have been tremendous, and we are thrilled to begin the planning for “Homeland’s” third season.”
“Homeland” airs Sundays on Showtime.
