'Homeland' Season 2: 'Brody and Carrie Have Only Just Begun'

Thu Jan 12, 2012 2:07pm EST

(Spoiler warning: Don't read this if you haven't seen the first season of "Homeland" and still plan to -- or if you don't want to know anything about Season 2.)

The twisted relationship between the lead characters on "Homeland" is going to get twistier, Showtime entertainment president David Nevins said Thursday.

"Brody and Carrie have only just begun, and there's an enormous amount unresolved, and I know one way or another that will be a central issue in Season 2," he said.

The show's first season of the hit terrorism drama found CIA agent Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) suspecting Sgt. Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) of plotting a terror attack -- and then sleeping with him after probing deeply into his life. Brody betrayed her trust before opting not to go through with the attack. The finale ended with Carrie realizing her suspicions were correct, just as she underwent shock treatment that made her lose memory.

The second season won't necessarily pick up exactly where the first one left off, Nevins said. Good thing, because watching Carrie wake up and say "Where am I"? for an hour may not be the most compelling television.

Nevins said he doesn't know the specifics of the season, but talks regularly with executive producers Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa. The series returns this fall.
