'Homeland' Season 3 Premiere Leaks Ahead of Showtime Debut


'Homeland' Season 3 Premiere Leaks Ahead of Showtime Debut


Rough cut of the season opener has been available on BitTorrent since September 1, earlier than its official September 29 premiere.

"Homeland" is hit with a piracy snafu almost a month before it's due to return on air. The season 3 premiere of the drama series has been leaked online ahead of its official debut on September 29 and has been downloaded by 100,000 users since it became available on BitTorrent websites on Sunday, September 1.

The leaked version is reportedly a non-final "workprint" cut which is missing opening credits and VFX on some scenes. It's suspected that someone involved in the show's production was the culprit behind the leak.

An anti-piracy unit of 20th Century Fox which produces "Homeland" is currently working on the issue. Neither the studio nor Showtime has released an official statement on the issue.

"Homeland" season 3 will deal with the aftermath of the attack at the CIA office. After crossing the Canadian border in the season 2 finale, Damian Lewis' Brody won't be seen in the first two episodes of the upcoming season, but he will definitely return. "The decision to not have Brody in the first two episodes was just a function of storyline," executive producer Alex Gansa explained.

Of the third season's theme, he said, "One of the themes of season three is the cost that being an intelligence officer exacts on the people who are in that career. And Saul (Mandy Patinkin) and Carrie (Claire Danes) are obviously the prime examples of that. As a result of the attack last year, the CIA itself is on trial: That agency couldn't even protect itself; how should it be expected to protect the country? Saul is confronted with that very question in the first episode."
