Set in Islamabad and Kabul, the fourth season of Homeland finds Carrie putting as much physical distance as she can between herself and Washington, as she goes out in the field for the first time since the whole Brody situation began. In order to feel normal again, Carrie has to embrace what she likes about herself and what makes her feel the most at ease, which turns out to be who she is when she’s working and the job of CIA agent as a whole. Carrie is good at what she does and to keep from wallowing in the pain from losing Brody and the uncertainty that comes with being a new mother, she has to get back into the field and prove to both her doubters and herself that she’s still a worthwhile agent. But will Carrie be able to fully escape her past or is what happened with Brody so engrained in her that she won’t be able to shake it off and do her job?
Joining Homeland this season are Laila Robins (Bored to Death) as United States ambassador Martha Boyd; Corey Stoll (House of Cards) as CIA Station Chief Sandy Bachman; Nimrat Kaur (The Lunchbox) as Tasleem Qureshi, a member of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence; and Suraj Sharma (Life of Pi) as Pakistani medical student Aayan Ibrahim.
The fourth season of Homeland is set to premiere Sunday, October 5th at 9:00.
