Things will be pretty intense in the return of HomelandSeason 7. Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) is back in the game as she will once again return as the fan favorite spy.

Showtime has now promoted Jake Weber, Linus Roache, and Maury Sterling as series regular. Thus, they will all definitely be back with a big plan. Will President Elizabeth Keane (Elizabeth Marvel) be taken down this time?

New series regulars

Brett O'Keefe is back with a vengeance in “Homeland” Season 7. The alt-right media personality might now have a bigger plan to bring President Elizabeth Keane’s government down as his previous coup attempt failed.

The role of Jake Weber is described as "a powerful rebel." In fact, he is considered as a deceitful “Alex Jones- type character,” who shouldn’t’ be allowed wandering the streets, Christian Post reported. Now that he is back, he might be working for a new scheme against the current administration.

Other stars who have been promoted as series regulars are Linus Roache, who plays the role of David Wellington. He is the right-hand of the new president while Maury Sterling portrays the character of Max Piotrowski. He is also a CIA surveillance expert. The three are expected to counterweight Ruper Friend’s exit last season as his character as Peter Quinn surprisingly got killed in the finale episode.

Return of Carrie

Fans can expect “Homeland” Season 7 to be more anarchic as President Elizabeth Keane will continue to do her best to bring her opponents down.

Dar Adal (F. Murray Abraham) might stay in prison for a while as the country’s leader has no plans to sign his release until he reveals all his secrets. However, with all the connections he has, viewers shouldn’t be surprised if he manages to escape without a trace.

Alternatively, Carrie Mathison is going to leave the state leader’s side to save her mentor Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin). He, too, has been accused of leading the rebellion against the president last season. In an interview with Claire Danes, via IB Times, the actress revealed that she will be back as an intelligence official and carry on with her spying assignements.

The 38-year-old star admitted that her character has been in a fringe for a long while, but she will definitely be back to play the game. “I think she's ready to re-enter it and re-engage—put her spy back on,” the actress said.

“Homeland” Season 7 will return in May 2018 on Showtime.
