The show’s executive producer Alex Gansa has released a few morsels of information regarding where Carrie (Claire Danes) and Brody (Damian Lewis) are at when the season begins.
“Carrie has had, for the first time in her life, the benefit of professional help for her disease,” Gansa told The Huffington Post. “She will have been in the psych ward for a while.
“She will have been in the care of a psychiatrist for six months. She will have undergone a series of these ECT therapies. [The treatment] is not just a one-off.
“So when we find her as the second season picks up, she will be in a place where she is centred and quiet and together in a way that we haven’t seen her before.”
Meanwhile, Brody will be a congressman when the second season commences.
“His seat is vacated through a scandal, and he was appointed by the governor into that seat for a temporary period of time until the election,” Gansa teased.
“He’s not running. Well, he will be running, but he will be a sitting congressman serving in the House of Representatives when we open the season.”
Gansa also confirmed that the second season will begin roughly six months after the conclusion of the first.
