It's high time we gave you a Homeland update. And it's not looking good for the Brody fans among us, looks like he won't be featuring all that much in series three. Guess that's a whole lot of Carrie's contorting, mopey, mushed up face we'd better get used to. Ugh.

These beans were spilled by none other than the show's executive producer, Alex Gansa. In conversation with the LA Times, Gansa revealed that Damian Lewis' character was forced to go on the run (well, duh) after the whole world was made privy to his involvement with the bad guys at the end of of season 2, marking him as 'the world's most wanted terrorist'.

"He is the most wanted man on the planet. By definition, he's going to be hiding somewhere. And if he's hiding, that limits what he can do."

And what of the decision not to kill him off at the end of the last episode? "Not killing him off was the right move... There was still more story to tell between Carrie [Claire Danes] and Brody."

We wait with bated breath 'til the end of September when Homeland will finally be back on our screens.
