Claire Danes revealed a lot of news during her interview on the Howard Stern show today; she’s expecting her second child, and the terrorism drama “Homeland” she stars in will end with season 8.
She told Stern, “I am pregnant … I am deep into my second trimester,” but that likely won’t affect her character, Carrie Mathison, in the SHOWTIME hit.
When Stern told Danes, “I love ‘Homeland’ and we have one more season after this,” and Danes confirmed “That’s it,” and she feels “very conflicted” about the series ending. “I’ll be ready. She’s a lot, this Carrie freakin’ Mathison,” Claire added, “I’ll be ready for a reprieve from that.” But she says she’s “never done anything this long,” besides being married.”
SHOWTIME hasn’t yet confirmed that season 8 of the dynamite drama series will be the last. Currently in season 7, new episodes on Sundays at 9 pm ET on SHOWTIME.
