It is hard to say goodbye to our favorite show at any time. However, we are very fulfilled knowing that the producers successfully gave the show a proper ending. They have managed to wrap the plot nicely and did not force it to end. So, there you have it. 'Homeland' is no longer returning for season 9. But in case the creators change their minds or decide to create a spin-off, you can rest assured we will keep you posted on the updates.
