Emmy nominee Hugh Dancy (“Hannibal,” “The Path”) will join his wife Claire Danes in the eighth and final season of Showtime’s “Homeland” series.
Dancy will play John Zabel in a multi-episode. Zabel is a beltway consultant who joins the new White House as a foreign policy advisor to the U.S. President, and butts heads with Mandy Patinkin’s Saul Berenson along the way.
In the new season, Danes’ Carrie Mathison is recovering from months of confinement in a Russian gulag. Memory issues from the tortures she’s suffered prove problematic for Saul, who calls on her to engage the Taliban in peace negotiations.
Production on the final season is currently underway ahead of its return later this year.
