The second series of Homeland hits our screens on Sunday (September 30th) and the stars of the show, fresh from their success at this year’s Emmy Awards, have promised that it will carry on delivering pulse-quickening drama.

The show walked away from this years Emmy Awards with its head held high, clutching the awards for Best Actress for Claire Danes, Best Actor for Damian Lewis, Best Writing in a Drama Series for the show’s creators and chief writers Howard Gordon, Alex Gansa and Gideon Raff as well as the night's biggest win for Best Drama Series, and now it looks to take this success and run with it. After his win, Damian told Huffington Post that although this series will maintain it’s character driven story devices, the new series will be much more high paced, and promised, “it will surprise people how accelerated it is.”

Hoping to keep the plot of the next season as much of a secret as possible, the writers and producers have revealed very little about what we can expect from series two of the show, although we do know a little about what will happen from how series one ended. With Brody (Lewis) now a congressman and Jess (Morena Baccarin), his devoted, supportive wife still by his side, Carrie (Danes) faces a race against time as she tries to re-associate herself with the CIA whilst recovering from her electroconvulsive therapy treatments. The new series will also have a new regular in it’s ranks in the shape of Abu Nazir ( Navid Negahban) who still poses a massive threat to the US.
