Showtime's Homeland left viewers at the edge of their seats, as its Season 2 finale had Brody (Damian Lewis) on the run from U.S. soil, which surely left them wondering whether or not the character will be returning for the third season.
According to Hypable, Lewis spoke to reporters at the Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday, and gave the following statement regarding his controversial character:
"I think Homeland can go on forever. Whether Brody can go on forever is a different matter," he said.
"We'll just play each season as it comes. Writers write themselves into interesting positions, sometimes not wholly expected positions. So it's a continuing surprise for everybody," Lewis continued.
The actor is undoubtedly referencing the fact that Brody will most likely have a smaller role for Season 3, due to the emotional unavailability to his lover and CIA agent Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) he showed during last season's finale episode.
While conducting an interview with Digital Spy two months ago, Lewis said that he felt as though Carrie and Brody wouldn't be getting back together.
"I think Brody and Carrie are over. I think it's over. I don't think those two can be together - can you imagine them being married and bringing up kids? It wouldn't last long."
Homeland is set to return for its third season on Sunday, Sept. 29 on Showtime. Keep checking back for more of the latest details on the cable series.
