One of the most nominated series for the upcoming 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards is Showtime’s Homeland, and for good reason. The first season of the dramatic thriller was an absolutely joy to watch, with an intense, enthralling, and addictive season-long story that kept viewers on their feet, buoyed by some truly terrific performances by Claire Danes, Damien Lewis, and Mandy Patinkin. For those unaware, the series centers on a CIA operations officer investigating a possible major terrorism threat in the U.S. As you can probably surmise, things aren’t exactly that straightforward.
The season ended on a bit of a cliffhanger, and a new trailer for the upcoming second season has landed online to confuse fans even further. It’s a bit jarring to watch, but by the end of the trailer you’ll be craving new episodes faster than you can say “Abu Nazir.” Hit the jump to take a look. Season 2 begins on Showtime on September 30th.
