Here at, the one show we miss the most this summer is probably Homeland. That's probably unanimous. And when I just saw the words "Homeland Season 3 trailer" come across my Twitter timeline approximately 37 seconds ago, my heart skipped a bit because OMG it's FINALLY HAPPENING.

So then I watched it, and I almost cried. Not because it's that emotional, but because it's not a teaser trailer at all. It's literally just tidbits and beeps and phones ringing and cryptic sounds. It gives away basically nothing about the season, other than the fact that it premieres September 29, which I feel like I knew already. Well, and the fact that Brody is alive and somewhere unknown. Watch it for yourself and you'll totally get my frustration:

But, you can check out our play-by-play of what happened at the CBS TCA panel in LA yesterday right HERE for more scoop on the new season. And this just in—Brody, aka Damien Lewis, will NOT be featured in the first two episodes! This is crazy talk since he won the Emmy for Lead Actor in a Drama last year, but producers have confirmed that his absence from the first two episodes is part of the show's storyline and nothing more. So phew.


What do you think of the new trailer? Do you kinda like that it's so open-ended or do you wish there as a bit more to work with?  Tweet us @OKMagazine!
