After two consecutive wins as Best Drama Actress, Claire Danes ("Homeland") is looking to make it three in a row. If successful with her episode submission "The Star," she will join just two other leading ladies who went undefeated for three consecutive years: Barbara Bain ("Mission: Impossible") from 1967-1969 and Tyne Daly ("Cagney & Lacey") from 1983-1985 (she won a fourth in 1988). Can Danes pull it off? -Break- Exclusive: Emmy episode submissions for 'The Good Wife,' Jim Parsons, Claire Danes, ...

(Cbr) There’s no place like "Homeland," there’s no place like "Homeland," there’s no place like "Homeland." That’s what the first full trailer for the fourth season of Showtime’s Emmy-winning thriller would have you believe, at least. Claire Danes returns to her award-winning role as Carrie Mathison, an unstable but undeniably talented counter-terrorism operative with years of experience working in the Middle East. After losing the love of her life in the season three finale, Carrie races forward in a Brody-free world — and viewers will likewise have to adjust to a "Homeland" without Damian Lewis as the treacherous Nicolas Brody. Thankfully, there’s always Saul. Check out the trailer and full poster below. "Homeland" returns on October 5 at 9 p.m. Et/Pt on Showtime. »

Our first look at the new season of Homeland suggests Carrie hasn't become any better at espionage, but the presence of Quinn and Saul may make things interesting in the field
Homeland will return for its fourth season in October, and with Damian Lewis's Brody gone and Claire Danes's Carrie Mathieson back in the field, series creator Alex Gansa has promised that the CIA thriller will seem like a "pilot" again. Here's what the first trailer suggests about its comeback.

Homeland, starring Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Claire Danes, Emmy winner Damian Lewis, and Emmy and Tony Award winner Mandy Patinkin, is scheduled to begin its fourth season this year. Homeland tells the story of Carrie Mathison (Emmy, SAG and Golden Globe Award winner Claire Danes), a bi-polar CIA officer who plays by her own rules. At the end of last season Carrie, pregnant with the late Brody's (Damian Lewis) baby, along with her mentor Saul Berenson (Emmy and Tony Award winner Mandy Patinkin), brought a significant and much-needed win for the agency and country at large. Season four will find Carrie assigned to one of the most volatile and dangerous CIA stations in the Middle East where she is back on the front lines in the war on terror. Along with Danes and Patinkin, »

Showtime’s Homeland will be hitting the creative reset button when it returns for its fourth season this fall. Gone are Sergeant Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis), his wife Jessica (Morena Baccarin) and definitely his daughter Dana (Morgan Saylor), who for some reason became one of the most widely hated characters on the ‘net throughout the spy drama’s first three seasons. Now, Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), still grieving Brody’s death, has otherwise put her life back together and is working as a case officer in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Of course, because this show is called Homeland, Carrie uncovers a possible terrorist plot and leaps into action. She’s not going at it alone, though – season four will introduce new characters played by Corey Stoll and Suraj Sharma. Additionally, Mandy Patinkin and Rupert Friend are returning as Carrie’s former mentor Saul Berenson and former ally Peter Quinn, who still has feelings for Carrie, »

While we're still three months away from the Season 4 premiere of Showtime's “Homeland,” the network decided to start teasing fans now with a “First Look” trailer. Season 4 will mark the show's first season without Damian Lewis‘ Nicholas Brody, who served as both villain and love interest for Claire Danes throughout the first 36 episodes. In other words, it serves as a great potential jumping on point for new viewers.

When Homeland's third season ended last December, Sgt. Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) was (spoiler alert!) dead and Carrie Matheson (Claire Danes) was pregnant with his baby. In this first look at season four, we see a glimpse of their baby girl. Despite being improbably named Istanbul bureau chief by the CIA at the end of last season, Carrie is in Pakistan, where she continues to deal with the "tyranny of secrets." »

The new season of the Claire Danes-fronted drama kicks off on Sunday, Oct. 5 at 9 p.m. on Showtime and it finds Danes' Carrie Mathison working in the field. From the looks of the trailer below, it's going to be a wild ride for the drama. During a lunch at the 2014 TCA Summer Press Tour, Homeland bosses provided a few nuggets of information about where we find Carrie, Saul (Mandy Patinkin) and how the show is adjusting to life without…Brody (Damian Lewis). 1. Saul will be working in the private sector. 2. There will be five or six new characters in the world of Carrie Mathison 3. The Brody family—including your favorite angsty teen, »
At its Television Critics Association press tour panel on Friday (July 18), Showtime announced a Season 4 premiere date for the Emmy-winning drama and presented colorful key art and a new "first look" teaser. "Homeland" will premiere on Sunday, October 5 at 9 p.m. As we established at the end of last season, Carrie was pregnant with the late Brody's baby, but she had also been promoted to a new post overseas. Shot in South Africa, the fourth season will find Carrie working at a CIA station in the Middle East, facing a new threat with the characters played by cast regulars Mandy Patinkin, Rupert Friend, Nazanin Boniadi and Laila Robins. After winning Emmys for Danes, Damian Lewis and Outstanding Drama Series in 2012 and Emmys for Danes and writing in 2013, "Homeland" dropped to four nominations this spring, though Danes and Patinkin both received nods. Check out the first footage below. They feature guest »

Carrie Mathison is back in action (“Get the f— out of my face!”) in the first trailer from season 4 of Showtime’s Homeland. Below is the first video from the return of the espionage drama, which is doing a major reboot this year after the departure of star Damian Lewis. The show has an entirely new setting — the season largely takes place overseas in Pakistan and Afghanistan as CIA case officer Carrie struggles to maintain stability in the region following the pullout of U.S. forces in Afghanistan (our extensive Q&A with the Homeland showrunner here). Plus there are »

It's been nearly a year since Carrie Mathison drew a star in the memory of Brody (Damian Lewis), privatley preserving his memory. With his baby on the way, and having just become the youngest station chief in CIA history, Mathison has a long year laid out in front of her.
Four months after the death of Brody, Lockhart (now CIA Director) offers Carrie (now eight months pregnant) the job of station chief of CIA's Turkey operations (after a maternity leave). Carrie accepts the position but her request to place a star on the memorial wall to commemorate Brody is refused. In the final scene, Carrie is seen discreetly drawing a star on the memorial wall herself.

Ubiquitous as always, there’s a whole lot more of Werner Herzog coming our way over the next few months. The upcoming 16-film Blu-ray set, arriving at the end of this month, would normally be plenty, but there's also his first narrative feature since 2009: "Queen of the Desert." After years of development, casting, re-casting, and production, his biopic, following the influential cartographer Gertrude Bell — and starring Nicole Kidman, Robert Pattinson, Damian Lewis, and James Franco — is prepping for the fall festival circuit. In advance, the first still has arrived and can be seen below, courtesy of The Film Stage. For a look back at the rich, eclectic Herzog canon check out Fandor, which is streaming the 16 titles featured in that aforementioned Blu-ray set. Also worth examining is their reprint of a 1998 interview/profile he did at the time of "Little Dieter Needs to Fly." Fitting that one of his »

Over the weekend producer Nick Raslan tweeted he'd seen the final cut of Werner Herzog's newest film, Queen of the Desert and in true producer fashion said, "It's a true Epic." Along with the high praise he tweeted the above picture offering our first look at the film, which many believe may be headed to one, if not several, of the upcoming fall film festivals. The film is based on the true story of Gertrude Bell (Nicole Kidman), the traveler, writer, archaeologist, explorer, cartographer, and political attache for the British Empire at the dawn of the twentieth century. Robert Pattinson, James Franco and Damian Lewis co-star. In a recent conversation with The Playlist, Herzog discussed the performance from Kidman in the film saying, "Wait for that one. Wait for it. I make an ominous prediction: How good she is." So, as I've been reviewing Herzog's older films (read my »

German filmmaker Werner Herzog is on the brain today. The 71-year-old filmmaker is about to celebrate the release of the superb Shout Factory boxset "Herzog: The Collection" and he’s got a new film waiting in the wings. Titled “Queen Of The Desert," the film features the filmmaker’s most starry cast to date: Nicole Kidman, James Franco, Robert Pattinson, “Homeland” star Damian Lewis and many more. The film chronicles the events of Gertrude Bell's life, a British explorer, traveler, archaeologist and political officer. And apparently it’s done and in the can. Co-producer Nick N. Raslan tweeted the first photo of the movie over the weekend, said the movie was done and described it as a “true epic” (you can see the tweets below). Surely if the picture is done that means we can absolutely expect it at one of the fall film festivals this September, at either Tiff, »

Downton Abbey scribe Julian Fellowes applies his popular touch to the Bard's great, doomed romance. True Grit's Hailee Steinfield and Douglas Booth play the 'star-crossed lovers' whose illicit affair ignites a bitter rivalry between Verona's ruling families - the Capulets and the Montagues. Paul Giamatti pops up as the sympathetic Friar Lawrence and Homeland's Damian Lewis sports an interesting barnet as Lord Capulet. »
Showtime’s Homeland is preparing for its most impossible mission yet: Executing a total creative overhaul for its upcoming fourth season. You already know (Spoiler Alert: if you haven’t watched season 3, stop reading) that Damian Lewis exited the espionage thriller when his traitor-ish character Nicholas Brody was hanged in the season 3 finale. Coping with the loss of the show’s leading man is difficult enough, but Homeland will use Brody’s departure to radically shake up the show in other ways, too, with a new setting (Claire Danes’ Carrie Mathison is working in Pakistan and Afghanistan) and several cast additions (including Corey Stoll, »

Melissa Maerz: Jeff,
When the Emmy nominations were announced this morning, I was sitting at my desk, shouting, “Hodor! Hodor! Hodor!” Game of Thrones dominated with 19 nominations! Hot pie for everyone! I’d quibble with the fact that Noah Hawley’s fantastic update of Fargo didn’t get a best drama nod, especially since it was the runner-up with 18 nominations, and The Good Wife was unjustly ignored in that category, coming off its best season ever—it might be the only network drama that I truly loved—but the rest of the list was pretty solid. Among the smartest choices »

How could “The Good Wife” not make the cut this year? That was the question top of mind for many bizzers Thursday morning as they digested the news of the 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards nominations.
No doubt the drama series competition was fierce this year but the universal acclaim for “Good Wife’s” fifth season made it seem a slam-dunk for a return to the top race. The fact that “Downton Abbey” made the cut in a year when buzz on the PBS period sudser was definitely down a few notches only magnified the surprise for “Good Wife” fans.
Among the other head-scratchers in this year’s race:
Snub: Michael Sheen. Hard to believe that voters didn’t rally behind his fine slow-burn work as the repressed but adventurous sex research pioneer William Masters in Showtime’s “Masters of Sex.” Sheen »
