‘Homeland’ Season 3 Teaser Trailer Is Picking Up Strange Signals

Published 2 years ago by


Even though the TV powers that be have decided the best possible night for the season 3 premiere of Homeland is the very same one in which many viewers will be saying heartfelt goodbyes to Walter White, Jesse Pinkman and everyone else over on Breaking Bad, the new (and incredibly vague) teaser trailer for the Emmy-winning drama makes a compelling case for why everyone should dry their eyes and tune in to Showtime.

The teaser itself is devoid of any actual footage from the upcoming season, and since we’re still two months away from the the premiere, that’s not exactly strange. Instead, the clip opts to intrigue viewers with a series of sound clips taken completely out of context, so as to enhance the guesswork that will likely come as a result of listening to Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) say things like “Does Carrie know I’m here?” and “I just need to get my strength back,” before Saul (Mandy Patinkin) manages to chime in briefly as well.

Having listened to the above clip, you’ll notice that along with the lack of new footage, the teaser is also conspicuously short on an appearance from Brody’s ill-fated love interest, Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes).

What this absence means for Saul, Carrie and Brody’s storyline as the season gets underway is currently unclear, but Showtime did manage an official release not long ago that grants some insight into where the season 3 storyline is headed and how soon after the events of last season the story will begin.

According to Showtime:

“[The season picks up] during the aftermath of the horrific terror attack that decimated the U.S. intelligence apparatus, and prompted a global manhunt for the world’s most wanted terrorist — Nick Brody. As Carrie and Saul begin to pick up the pieces of their shattered professional and personal lives, they are swept up in the political and media firestorm surrounding the terror attack and the subsequent search for Brody’s whereabouts.”

From that statement, it sounds as though Brody’s last-ditch escape plan worked well enough that audiences will be thrust headlong into the desperate search to apprehend him. Whether or not that search will officially include both Saul Berenson and Carrie Mathison, though, remains to be seen.

At any rate, with two months to go until the premiere, expect a big marketing push from Showtime that will make the speculation games very interesting indeed.

Homeland season 3 premieres Sunday, September 29th @10pm on Showtime.

  1. I like the show. The trailer? An annoying earache.

  2. season 3 should be a good one

    • It will be fascinating what direction they go in.
      Very different from how it started but just how.

      • Less Brody and Carrie s***, more Carrie and Saul solving s***.

        • Damian Lewis signed a new five-year contract.
          Expect a lot of Brody. Maybe with less Carrie.

          • Maybe with the studio, but it would seem that there’s more store new directions that could go with Carrie than with Brody. In fact I just saw an article someplace (Didn’t read it though) that suggested thatafter this season the show might carry on without either of them. I know some fans blow a gasket when their favorite actors are written out, but sometimes that’s the best way to continue a series before it gets stale…The old “Dr. Who” approach

            • There are directions without Brody and Carrie too the show could
              theoretically go and interesting ones as well, however the way
              the showrunners talk about Lewis as the heart of the show I
              think that if they cannot find a path that he leads into the
              future we will be looking at just one or two more seasons.

  3. Love Homeland, such an intense show. I’m very excited for season 3. It will be interesting to see how they carry this show on. But as much as I enjoy this show, it’s not going to be a long running series IMO. Season Three was surprise to me, and I can’t see it going past four at this point.

    • It could’ve been a long running series. I thought the whole point of the show was Carrie trying to prove Brody was a traitor. I was surprised when they outed him so early on in season 2. All of that could’ve spanned a couple of seasons if they didn’t rush things.

  4. At any rate, with two months to go until the premiere, expect a big marketing push from Showtime that will make the speculation games very interesting indeed.

  5. One of the best shows ever,with the Americans and the Walking dead.

  6. This is currently my third favorite show, sucks that I’ll have to miss the premier D:

  7. For some reason it just doesn’t do well in the middle east…Go figure….

  8. Always love Homeland. It’s like the new Spooks for me. Also, Showtime’s never big on advertising their show till the last minute. Look at how silence Dexter was until it’s near it’s premier. And Carrie, please pick Quinn.

  9. Thought the longer trailer, about 10 minutes, was great.
