Season two of Showtime's Emmy award winning program "Homeland" is set to make its long-awaited premiere on Sunday night. The latest installment of the hit series will have Best Actress winner Claire Danes reprising her role as Carrie Mathison, a troubled ex-CIA operative who firmly believes that P.O.W. turned Politician Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) may have strong ties to al-Qaida members who previously captured him.

However, further details regarding the bi-polar disorder that the CIA terminated Mathison suffers from along with a past romantic rendezvous with the suspected turncoat Brody give her colleagues reason to think that her inkling is false.
The first episode of the new season will begin with Mathison taking a much needed trip to Beirut in order to find her life's purpose. While on the trip, she will also address the ongoing concern about her mental health.
Claire Danes, 32, had a chance to speak to NBC about the upcoming season of "Homeland," and touched on the character development of Carrie Mathison.
"She is changed in that she's pretty stable. Obviously, there was that crescendo of mania at the very end, but throughout that first season it was sort of simmering, and she really has taken responsibility for her condition. And I think she's been exposed: she's been outed as this person with this condition, and that has altered her in a pretty fundamental way.
"She's not hiding to the same extent, and she doesn't have that same kind of panic and defensiveness. And when we find her at the beginning of the second season, she's been very humbled, and she's suffering from a real crisis of confidence - and she gets her mojo back, but it takes some time," added Danes.
"Homeland" season two will be premiering on Sunday, Sept. 30 at 10 PM ET on Showtime.
