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 (16)

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

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.

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

Top Critic

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.

    homelands last two episodes were taken from "red sparrow" same ending

    Nicht alle Aspekte des Deals mit diesem Unternehmen sind ideal

    They really messed it up this time. Beyond improbable and very questionable. I am almost going to say that season 8 puts a bad taste to the whole show.
  • Oct 01, 2020
    An incredible end to one of the best dramas ever.
  • Sep 26, 2020
    Could not have ended more perfectly. But I'm still so sad to see it go. Farewell, Carrie & Saul! 🖤💔

    I had the incredible misfortune to have met and dated an incredible woman long ago. A Blonde Private Security Contractor in North Africa. Absolutely brilliant in every aspect of her job,Professional to a tee. But come the night hours,comes the drink,comes the escape. When I started watching Homeland, by episode 3 I was like..holupaminute.. By the end of Season 1 I was looking at the screen like an aged veteran with that knowing blank stare. And at the end of Season 2 I didn't want to watch any further. The brilliance of the cast performances amazed me. And Claire Danes scared me,so good was her performance. I will ever watch this again. But damm was it good.

    It was the final episode that killed it for me. Seriously! She gets to live in Moscow and listen to bad jazz
  • Jun 05, 2020
    Ending was super fantastic!!
  • May 27, 2020
    Awesome! don't understand how some tv gets 100% and this amazing show doesn't. You need to ask yourself who are these odd TV reviewers.
  • May 25, 2020
    Wow. Absolutely brilliant writing. Sad that this was the end.
