Series star Claire Danes revealed the news of Howard Stern on his SiriusXM radio show that season 8 is the last in April, tells the radio host, “Yes, that’s it. I mean, I come ready. She is much, this Carrie-freakin’-Mathison character,” she said. “I mean, she is constantly under duress. It is a workout, so I will be ready for a postponement of that.”
Showtime President of Programming Gary Levine told media members: “The show is not to limp into the sunset,” adding that the series has “reinvented itself every year, different events in the world that is creepy.”
Nevins claimed that the creator, Alex Gansa would be bringing the show to the “right conclusion.”
