Showtime Want Third Season of 'Homeland'

Homeland season 2 has done so well, Showtime has ordered a third series of the terrorism drama, USA Today reports. It's no surprise, given the success of the show at The Emmys.

Homeland, which firmly stakes its place within the drama category, has been a great success, which manifested itself with the best drama award at The Emmys, alongside acting awards for the show's biggest stars, Claire Danes and Damian Lewis. The Second season began Sept. 30 and was up 60% from its series debut. Across all platforms "Homeland" drew 5.2 million viewers for the episode. Sunday's 10 p.m. episode - the fourth of the season - drew 1.7 million viewers, the highest in series history for an initial telecast. "The writers, cast and crew of Homeland continue to create a remarkably entertaining and suspenseful roller coaster ride," said David Nevins, president of entertainment for Showtime. "We can't wait for our viewers to experience what unfolds through the rest of season two." We can't, either.

It seems to be TV renewal week, with Fox ordering a third season of the singing competition, The X-Factor, and Arrow - the superhero series - being picked up for a full season after only two episodes on CW. The network also ordered three more scripts from Beauty and the Beast and Emily Owens, M.D., their two other freshman series.
