"Homeland" executive producer Alex Gansa revealed some details about the new season in a May interview on ABC's "This Week." "The issue in this season is, what happens if it were learned that a major attack on the United States was sponsored by a state? These are the big concerns that we're going to deal with in the first sweep of episodes," Gansa said. "And then there's the big question about, you know, where Brody is?"

"Homeland" Season 3 premieres Sunday, Sept. 29 at 9 p.m.
