One Of The Best TV Shows, Homeland, Is Coming To An End

Claire Danes & Hugh Dancy Expecting Baby #2 — See Her Baby Bump

When asked by Howard Stern on his Sirius XM radio show whether Homeland's eighth season will also be its last, Danes was quoted as saying, "yeah, that's it".

Claire Danes as Carrie Mathison in HOMELAND (Season 6, Episode 05).

"So I was pregnant when I did that sex scene", Danes told Stern following her announcement.

Claire is expecting her second child with her husband of nine years, Hugh Dancy.

Claire Danes kept falling asleep between takes on the Homeland shoot because she felt "rotten" during her first trimester of pregnancy.

Danes' comments about her own departure make it clear that, should Homeland indeed continue after its eighth season wraps up, it will functionally be a very different show.

"It's definitely going to be my previous year", he said. "When I was thinking about [working and being a mother] originally, I was really nervous about it", she said at the time. Where things could go in Season 8 are uncertain, but it could give the show the right amount of time to wind everything down in a way that's satisfying for long-time viewers.

Claire Danes made it clear today thatHomeland will end with Season 8.

She has been leading Homeland's cast as bipolar Carrie Mathison - once a Central Intelligence Agency agent - since its first season, which began airing in the autumn of 2011. The network's No. 1 drama series, HOMELAND is now filming in Richmond, Virginia.

Homeland airs Sundays at 8pm on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom with the season seven finale set to air at the end of the month.

The actress told Howard Stern on his show that she is "conflicted" about ending the run, but looking forward to it.

We'll bring you more as we get it.

Disclosure: Homeland airs on Showtime, which is owned by GameSpot parent company CBS.
