‘Homeland’ season 3 spoilers: The focus of Showtime’s new teaser (video)

HomelandJust in case you were not thoroughly excited enough about “Homeland” season 3 after the stellar finale on Showtime last year, we have something else to at least give you an idea of where the show is going moving forward: the first teaser for the return of Claire Danes and company in 2013.

While we have suggested the possibility of Nicholas Brody having a reduced role through at least the first part of the season (mostly since it makes little sense that he and Carrie would find each other right away), the clip makes certain to highlight the relationship between these two characters to a great degree … which of course should be enough for all of us to assume that the writers are going in a direction that ensures that Brody will remain a big part of the show moving forward, even if he is not always present on-screen.

If you were actually expecting any new footage in here, though, then you may be as crazy as the show’s writers were in thinking that no one would follow Brody to the Vice-President’s office. (We kid, we kid; it was the only flaw in a phenomenal season.) Season 3 is not even going to be on paper until next month at the earliest, and filming will not officially kick off until a few months after that. We will probably not receive a new teaser for the season until the middle of spring, and the first clip with actual footage of the show will likely be shown off at some point in the summer.

Do you still want Carrie and Brody to be the focus of “Homeland” season 3? If you want to read about some other things we are expecting to see moving forward on the show, you can do so over here.
