Homeland Exclusive: Two Original Castmembers Not Returning as Regulars in Season 4

Homeland is saying goodbye to two of its own.

On the eve of the Showtime hit’s Season 3 finale, TVLine has learned exclusively that original castmembers...

...Morena Baccarin and Morgan Saylor will not be back as series regulars in Season 4.

The move hardly comes as a surprise, as Baccarin’s Jessica and Saylor’s Dana appeared less frequently as Season 3 went on and Brody’s shattered home life became less of a focus. (The former’s real-life pregnancy also likely contributed to Jessica’s disappearance during the second half of the season.)

According to sources, the door is open for both actresses to return on a guest-star basis, the same way ex-full-timer Diego Klattenhoff (Mike) did this season.

Reps for Showtime and 20th Century Fox declined to comment.

Homeland wraps its third season Sunday at 9/8c.

Makes sense if that blind item is true about Damien Lewis leaving the show.

__amerie 14th-Dec-2013 08:53 pm (UTC)
srsly I was cracking up at how he wasn't even a blip on Brody's radar when he came back to the US
francesbcobain 14th-Dec-2013 09:23 pm (UTC)
mte Brody was like "I'm coming back for Dana." lmao you have another kid, sis.
captainhastings 14th-Dec-2013 09:32 pm (UTC)

tusiaczek87 14th-Dec-2013 09:17 pm (UTC)
mte should have happen after season 1
jaimelannister 15th-Dec-2013 12:35 am (UTC)
yeah, i've found the episodes without them pretty enjoyable oops (this coming from someone who likes dana and jessica). their storyline/relevance is over imo.
polynucleotide 14th-Dec-2013 09:02 pm (UTC)
makes sense with whats been going on this season and especially after the finale.

Guys, is tumblr not working for anybody else? It's not letting me see my dashboard.
myrasis 14th-Dec-2013 09:18 pm (UTC)
it's working fine for me. i'm using chrome with the user agent switcher IE9 and xkit though if that makes any difference.
francesbcobain 14th-Dec-2013 09:21 pm (UTC)
It's working fine for me.
