For those who cannot resist the temptation, there is 25 minute segment that is the beginning of season 2 premiere floating online. Here is the summary of it:

Carrie is living at home with her dad and sister now. Saul is in Beirut, where an asset comes forward with information about an attack. Vice President Walden asks Brody to be his running mate in a bid for presidency. Carrie teaches English at school when an ex-colleague from CIA comes to see her and says that Estes wants to meet. She refuses, but when she gets back home, she finds out that Saul has been trying to call her. Turns out that Estes is outside her house and, reluctantly, she agrees to talk to him. Apparently, an asset in Beirut would not divulge information to anyone other than Carrie, who recruited this person, so she packs her bags and travels there.

Season 2 premiere is a good episode. I liked, not loved, it. I see this season being a darker, grittier one. I was also felt a bit let down by the ending, but preview for episode 2 showed promise.

Homeland renewed for Season 3

On the heels of HOMELAND?s biggest numbers yet, with newly-released, record-breaking across platform ratings for its second season, SHOWTIME has ordered a third season, consisting of 12 new, one-hour episodes. The announcement was made today by David Nevins, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc. HOMELAND returned for its second season on Sept. 30th, up 60 percent from its season one premiere, delivering 2.07 million viewers for the night. The season two premiere week of HOMELAND attracted 5.2 million viewers across platforms (including Live+7, DVR and On Demand), up 25 percent vs. season one (4.1 million), a series high and the best performance ever for a sophomore series on SHOWTIME. Last night, HOMELAND delivered its highest-rated episode ever with 1.75 million viewers at 10 p.m., a series high that outperformed its season two premiere (vs. 1.73 million). Four weeks into the season, On Demand has increased views of the HOMELAND season two premiere to a total of 5.7 million viewers. Season three will begin production spring 2013. The series is produced by FOX 21.

?The Emmy wins for HOMELAND have certainly set the stage for a great second season,? said Nevins. ?The writers, cast and crew of HOMELAND continue to create a remarkably entertaining and suspenseful roller coaster ride, growing audiences week after week. We can?t wait for our viewers to experience what unfolds through the rest of season two. Our partners at Fox 21 have been tremendous, and we are thrilled to begin the planning for HOMELAND?s third season.?

Most recently, HOMELAND tied for the most wins of any program this year at the Emmy Awards, honored with six wins including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series, and Outstanding Lead Actress and Actor in a Drama Series. Additionally, HOMELAND has been awarded Golden Globe Awards, Peabody, Television Critics Association, AFI and Critics? Choice Awards in its freshman season. In the week leading up to its season two premiere, HOMELAND season one received 1.7 million views On Demand, the most pre-premiere viewing of a previous season On Demand in SHOWTIME series history. HOMELAND is currently filming the conclusion of season two in North Carolina.

HOMELAND is a one-hour drama series that tells the story of Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), a CIA officer battling her own demons, who becomes convinced that the intelligence that led to the rescue of Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis), a U.S. soldier who had been missing and presumed dead for eight years, was a setup and may be connected to an Al Qaeda plot to be carried out on American soil. The series also stars Mandy Patinkin, Morena Baccarin, David Harewood, Diego Klattenhoff, Jackson Pace, Morgan Saylor, Jamey Sheridan, David Marciano and Navid Negahban. The series executive producers are Howard Gordon, Alex Gansa, Gideon Raff, Michael Cuesta, Alex Cary, Chip Johannessen, Henry Bromell, Meredith Stiehm, Avi Nir and Ran Telem.

Watching yesterdays episode made me think that season 2 will be the final season because of what happened. Seeing this info now kinda surprised me i have to admit.

It's a great show, i love it. I just hope they wont stretch it to much.

I was not impressed with the latest episode that was shown on Sunday.

It was shorter than others, did not have a tense psychological bit and they ruined the secret of what is in the box during credits' preview of the next episode. Personally, I'd rather they pursued the arc of Brody not knowing he has been busted for 2-3 more episodes. It feels a bit of a shortcut not to have done that and an unnecessary one at that. By the way, we still don't know who the mole is that is feeding intel to Roya. Also, the way Mike was stonewalled by Estes was not played out well.

On the other hand, her emotional problems contribute to family pressure on Brody. That way, he is getting shtick from CIA and his wife.

Wow, quite a vicious death for the VP :/. So I guess Nick will try and push forward with the presidential/VP spot?

Can't. Carrie already said he had to stop it. Not like he can suddenly go 'IT'S ALL GOOD EVERYONE'

While I am not surprised -- based on ending of season 1 -- but I still do not like that season 2 will end on the emotional rollercoaster. It would have been much better if it was a showdown between Brody and Nazir. I appreciate that I may be prejudging the season finale, but I prefer action to mind games

Fantastic season Finale. The only complaint I have is the text transition they used on the ending credits. Took away from the emotion.
