‘Homeland’ season 3: Another new face joins the fold

Claire DanesWhile “Homeland” season 3 took a definite hit with the announcement that Meredith Stiehm was leaving in order to work on her new FX series “The Bridge,” there is some good news coming out now: there will still be a female voice working behind the scenes on the show moving forward.

According to new reports, Barbara Hall (“Judging Amy”) has joined the show as a co-executive producer for the new season, and will be playing an instrumental role in helping Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon run the reigning Emmy champion for Outstanding Drama Series. Hall joins James Yoshimura as the new additions to the staff this season, which has without a doubt undergone quite a major makeover in order to prepare for the new year.

So why all of the creative changes? As we pointed out earlier with Stiehm, it is really just an issue of there being so much great talent in one place that it is hard to really keep everyone on board forever. Sooner or later, much of this talent is going to show an interest in going out and doing some other things in a higher position, and this is precisely what has happened here with this show. Even Gansa and Gordon have been working on executive-producing some new pilots on other networks, even though it is hardly confirmed at the moment as to whether or not they will be picked up to series.

If you want to read even more scoop when it comes to the changes for “Homeland” season 3, you really don’t have to look any further than heading on over to the link here. The series will return to Showtime on September 29, and we will of course have much more in the way of scoop before that time.
