Showtime's long-running political thriller 'Homeland, ' which has earned eight Emmy awards and five Golden Globes in its time on the air will come to an end next year.

David Nevins, the premium cable network's president and chief executive, made the announcement Monday at the summer press tour of the Television Critics Association, Variety said. "Viewers will be rewarded by the way Alex brings Homeland home". "Not many have been as lucky as me - partnered with the miraculous Claire Danes ..."

In a statement, Gansa said he was sad to see the series end, but said that it's time.

The Brady Bunch was about a clean-cut family formed by the marriage of a widow with three children and a widower with three children.

Carrie Mathison better be stocking up on some lumberjack gear, because Homeland's upcoming eighth season will officially be its last. What began as a a thoughtful portrayal on America's ongoing conflicts in the Middle East has turned into a show about everything from global private investigations to government conspiracy. "This project, arriving right at the beginning of my Showtime tenure thanks to Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon, and brought to life by a remarkable cast led by Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin, is a richly written character study that is now ready for its natural conclusion".

The announcement had been expected after Danes told Howard Stern on his radio show in April that the eighth season would be the last for the series about conflicted Central Intelligence Agency agent Carrie Mathison, who has bipolar disorder.

Danes revealed in April during an appearance on The Howard Stern Show that Homeland was ending after its eighth season.
