The eighth and final season of Homeland will debut in early 2020, according to US TV network Showtime.

The channel said production on the acclaimed drama’s last 12 episodes is under way.

Former CIA agent Carrie struggled last season to uncover an international conspiracy to harm America’s democratic institutions.

The final season will open with Carrie, played by Claire Danes, recovering physically and mentally from her imprisonment in a Russian gulag.

She is enlisted to help co-star Mandy Patinkin’s Saul in a bid for peace in Afghanistan.

Other cast members include Beau Bridges, Maury Sterling and Linus Roache.

Showtime says the final season of Homeland will begin on February 9.
