Homeland Spoilers: Is Nicholas Brody Returning In Season 3? Showrunner Speaks!

Homeland season 2 wrapped-up its finale episode last year with lead character, Sgt. Nicholas Brody (Damien Lewis) becoming America's most wanted fugitive/ terrorist. His CIA lover, Carrie Matheson (Claire Danes) must be able to tie up loose ends while she delves into the nebulous events that may prove Brody's innocence.

The watershed moment on the season 2 finale is pivotal for the show's return next fall. As most of us have wondered, "Is Brody still coming back?" or will showrunners pursue another plot that compeletely cuts out Brody's fugitive storyline? In a report from TV Line, I learned that the answer to my initial question is.. YES!

Homeland EP, Howard Gordon confirms that the finale episode of season 2 is not the last we can see from Brody. There'll be more to come! Here's a brief statement from Gordon:

“He’s alive so of course he’ll be back. One of the great challenges of next [season] is how he’ll be back. But there’s no doubt that he will be back.”

Are you psyched that Brody will be back for another season?

'Homeland' season 3 premieres on Sunday, Sept. 29 on Showtime.
