Homeland season 3 will concentrate less on Nicholas Brody, despite the Homeland season 2 finale according to executive producer, Alex Gansa.
Nicholas Brody who will become America’s most wanted man at the beginning of Homeland season 3, will be featured less often in the series according to the series’ executive producer, Alex Gansa.
Gansa has told the LA Times, “You have to understand where he is. He is the most wanted man on the planet. By definition, he’s going to be hiding somewhere. And if he’s hiding, that limits what he can do.”
Instead, Homeland season 3 will be looking to Carrie Mathison to carry the series whilst Brody is in hiding. There’s a whole lot going on with Carrie, as well as Saul, and it appears that at least the first half of the season will focus more so on Carrie.
Gansa said, “exonerating Brody will be in the back of Carrie’s mind, but as you will see when you tune in to the first couple of episodes, that is not the narrative engine that takes us through the first half of the season. It’s there; she hopes to clear Brody at some point. But there’s a whole lot more going on in her life than that.”
But, if we think that there is going to be less of Nicholas Brody, what does that mean for his family? We are hoping to see Dana and Chris have more of a storyline this season, and it looks as though Dana is also going to be featured extensively this season.
Gansa comments, “a huge part of the beginning of Homeland season 3 is where we find Dana and how she reacted to seeing her dad essentially admit committing the act that he personally told her he didn’t do. That father-daughter relationship has always been essential to Brody’s emotional life. It’s not going anywhere.”
What are your thoughts on the prospects of seeing less of Nicholas Brody?
Homeland season 3 will premiere on September 29 on Showtime.
