Homeland essentially has a clean slate going into season 4 thanks to the season 3 finale, and now the showrunner is discussing what could be ahead.
Many – including Hypable – noted that Dar Adal and Saul’s coffee shop conversation in this past Sunday’s episode suggested that the latter is interested in returning to the CIA. Homeland showrunner Alex Gansa confirms in a new interview he will probably be back despite the nice goodbye between he and Carrie.
“[Saul] is now a private contractor, and the CIA does outsource so much intelligence work to these private contractors. So even though Saul may not have a desk at Langley anymore, his interface with the agency is going to be big,” Gansa said, before adding that others like Quinn and Fara may go to Istanbul as well since her and Lockhart discussed bringing her favorite people.
