‘Homeland’ Gets A Second Season | This is great, great news. Homeland is far and away the best new show of the season. And even if I have absolutely no idea for what the plot of a second season would be if Nicholas Brody turns out to be a terrorist, the prospect of more of a show that’s smart and canny about Islam, what our fears of terrorism have lead us to do to ourselves and to other people, and is brave enough to have a fascinatingly unlikable female main character makes me extremely happy. Hopefully, even more people than already have will get hooked. Homeland is good enough to be worth the price of a Showtime subscription, and I don’t say that about many things.
