‘Homeland’ Renewed For Third Season
On the heels of sweeping the Primetime Emmys and scoring series highs with its second-season premiere, Showtime‘s drama Homeland has been given a third-season pickup. The order is for 12 episodes.
Last night, Homeland delivered its most-watched episode yet with 1.75 million viewers at 10 PM, edging its previous series high posted by the Season 2 premiere (1.73 million). Homeland‘s second-season opener September 30 was up 60% from its Season 1 premiere, delivering 2.07 million viewers for the night. The Season 2 premiere week averaged 5.2 million viewers across platforms (including Live+7, DVR and on-demand), up 25% vs. Season 1, a series high and the best performance ever for a sophomore series on Showtime. Four weeks into the season, on-demand has increased views of the Season 2 premiere to a total of 5.7 million viewers. Season 3 will begin production spring 2013. “The Emmy wins for Homeland have certainly set the stage for a great second season,” said Showtime entertainment president David Nevins. “The writers, cast and crew of Homeland continue to create a remarkably entertaining and suspenseful roller coaster ride, growing audiences week after week.”
Speaking of Rupert Friend as Peter Quinn, there's no episode stills of him for next Sunday's episode, but he does appear in the preview, Watch: Episode 5: Q&A, so that means he is in the next episode!
Anyway, I made screen captures of him from the preview trailer and sneak peek: A Terrorist of the upcoming Sunday's Episode 5 below and uploaded 2 episode stills for Episode 6, the upcoming episode, which will air the next Sunday after, November 4th.
Check out the following...
