Homeland is coming to an end, but could the series survive in the shape of a spinoff or two?
The show’s creators and cast have no immediate plans for a Homeland spinoff but didn’t entirely close the door on the possibility, per THR:
NEVINS You can’t get to a finale of a long-running show without answering the dreaded [spinoff] question …
GANSA Every time Howard brings up doing more, I want to punch him.
GORDON I’m really just doing it to irritate him, but never say never.
GANSA Howard gave his 40s to 24. I gave my 50s to Homeland. And it got to a point where everyone wants to do something different.
DANES I need this last season released into the world before it really ends for me, and then I’m sure I’ll surface eventually. It’s going to be a long process of seeing who I am as an actor out of this show — which has defined me for so long. I don’t know where to start, but I should play somebody decidedly sane.
Do you want a Homeland spinoff or should the series end with Season 8?
