(BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.) — The cast and creators of Showtime’s Emmy-winning drama Homeland met with journalists Monday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills, Calif. One of the topics of discussion: the show’s second season, which was considered uneven by some critics.
Homeland co-creator Alex Gansa said he wishes the backlash against the drama never happened, but, he noted, “the show built an audience all through season two, and our 11 Emmy nominations are a nice comeback.”
The third season of Homeland debuts on Sept. 29, and Gansa said no changes were made to the series based on feedback from critics.
“It didn’t really influence either the season two, the way we rolled out season two, or season three,” he said.
