Diego Klattenhoff is leaving "Homeland."
According to TVLine, Klattenhoff, who plays Mike on Showtime's CIA drama, will not be a series regular when "Homeland" returns on Sunday, Sept. 29 at 9 p.m. However, Klattenhoff could return in a recurring capacity. The report says Morena Baccarin is expected to return to the series as a regular part of the cast.
Claire Danes recently shot down reports that she'd be leaving the series after the birth of her son. “I’ve always wanted to have kids, but I’m glad I didn’t until now," Danes, who gave birth to a baby boy on Dec. 17, told Elle. "When I was thinking about [working and being a mother] originally, I was really nervous about it ... I think I would make a lousy stay-at-home mom. It just wouldn’t suit me. I feel so fortunate, in that I’ve had this arrow-straight focus ... that I wanted to act."
As for Damian Lewis, whose character Brody was last seen fleeing the country, "Homeland" executive producer Howard Gordon said the Emmy and Golden Globe winner will return.
“He's alive so of course he’ll be back," Gordon told TVLine. "One of the great challenges of next [season] is how he'll be back. But there's no doubt that he will be back."
