Homeland is going to end with its eighth season next year—but Showtime Networks CEO David Nevins doesn't want to hear the word "cancelation." Alex Gansa, the series co-creator and showrunner, "will bring the show to its proper conclusion," Nevins told the Television Critics Association's summer press tour Monday, per the Hollywood Reporter. The final season of the espionage thriller, which was based on the Israeli series Prisoners of War, will premiere in June 2019, reports Variety. Months before Nevins made it official, Gansa and star Claire Danes had said the eighth season would be the last. (Hired graffiti artists who considered the show bigoted once covered a set in anti-Homeland messages.)
