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

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (17)

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

Feb 10, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

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.

Feb 4, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

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

May 4, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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…

I never believed I'd dedicate nearly 100 hours of my life to watching the series.

Aug 3, 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.

Audience Reviews for Homeland: Season 8

  • 12h ago
    Great show, consistently good. And series 8 is the best, production, script, locations, acting, all contribute to make this show a must see. I am still to watch the last one tonight ...

    Would give it minus stars if I could. Utter twaddle. An insult to the viewer.
  • Feb 17, 2021
    The final season of Homeland is as riveting as they come and the most imposing season of them all. The show finished with its most powerful cinematic showdown drawing from the tumultuous father-daughter relationship of Saul and Carrie. The final season really honed in on the concept of the entire show: Peace is such a fragile brainchild of mankind in this chaotic world of ulterior motives and sinister imaginings.
  • Feb 13, 2021
    One of the best. So sorry it's the last one. Or maybe there is room for more.
  • Feb 11, 2021
    Best season of Homeland !
  • Feb 02, 2021
    one of the best shows on television.
  • Jan 31, 2021
    Started watching this awesome show from series 1 on recommendation of one of my friend, and there was no looking back ever since. Just finished the season 8 yesterday. What an EPIC series. What am I going to do now? Waiting eagerly for Season 9. <3
  • Jan 28, 2021
    I couldn't get enough of this series. Awesome conclusion!
  • Jan 02, 2021
    Nice finish to a long successful run, Last season all most as fresh as the the first.
  • Dec 21, 2020
    A perfect denouement to one of the best shows to debut in the 2010s.
