|Homeland premieres October 5 on Showtime.|
As last season drew to a close, Carrie Mathison (Emmy, SAG and Golden Globe winner Claire Danes), pregnant with the late Brody's (Damian Lewis) baby, got promoted to a new post overseas, while Saul Berenson (Emmy and Tony Award winner Mandy Patinkin) contemplated his future outside of the CIA.
Filmed entirely on location in South Africa, Season 4 begins with Carrie, the CIA Chief of Station in Kabul, making a critical decision when her counterpart in Islamabad delivers urgent intelligence on a high-value target. Back in the U.S., Saul struggles to adjust to the private sector.
An official inquiry brings Carrie back to the U.S., where she struggles with her ambivalence towards motherhood. Meanwhile, Quinn spirals out of control; and a disgraced former case officer reveals disturbing new information.
