Ambitious Homeland Season 8
Also, the network President of Entertainment Gary Levine stated the reason why the show has been so much delay. According to him, the delays are because of the demands of filming and not because of creative or other issues. The production of the final season is happening in multiple companies, and that is taking time.
Levine also added that the show is going through a relatively smooth process but a very ambitious production schedule. This is taking more time than expected for the completion of production work for the final season.
