homeland season 3 tca 'Homeland' Season 3 is version 2.0 of the show, says Fox 21 head

Everything we’ve heard about “Homeland” Season 3 promises that it will feature a different sort of journey from what we’ve seen for the last two years. Fox 21 President Bert Salke is singing the same tune, promising that Season 3 will be the equivalent of “Homeland 2.0.”

“The challenge is to transfer to ‘Homeland 2.0,'” Salke teases to The Hollywood Reporter of the new season. “There are bigger developments character-wise this year than there have been. The best ‘Homeland’ script that I’ve ever seen writing-wise was this year. Best one I’ve ever seen. And I think they’re playing at that level.”

He continues, “It’s a more emotional show this year, and 2.0 means that other characters are going to come in. It’s a very big development season for Mandy Patinkin‘s Saul, and for Quinn [Rupert Friend], too. And as opposed to the way some things went down last year, there are definitive answers here — and a development that nobody is thinking about that is personal and awesome.”

“Homeland” Season 3 returns on Sept. 29 at 9 p.m. ET on Showtime.
