'Homeland' Ups F. Murray Abraham And Sarita Choudhury To Season 3 Regulars


Two familiar "Homeland" faces have gotten a promotion, and they both have ties to the new acting director of the CIA: The one and only Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin).

According to HitFix, F. Murray Abraham has been upped to series regular after playing retired black ops specialist Dar Adal in a few key scenes in Season 2, while Sarita Choudhury will finally be getting more screen time (and, we assume, moving back home) as Saul's wife, Mira.

Although not much is known about Season 3 of "Homeland," it will pick up during the aftermath of the terrorist attack at the end of Season 2 that caused Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) to leave the country with the help of Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes).

Additionally, the new season will find Carrie and Saul working to rebuild their personal and professional lives in the midst of a media firestorm about the terrorist attack and the search for Brody.

"Homeland" Season 3 premieres Sunday, September 29th at 9 p.m. ET on Showtime.
