All of us are happy with where we ended the show and the series. Another chapter doesn't feel necessary at the moment. But who knows what's going to happen? Who knows what Claire and Mandy want to do? Who knows what Howard wants to do? We don't know what that looks like. For now, it feels like closure."

She previously told The Guardian: "I loved [her]. It was just so nice to play the smartest person in the room, somebody who was so daring and unapologetically ambitious and such a badass. She's not really going away."

The finale saw Carrie back out of her mission to kill her mentor Saul to instead become his new informant, and fans were delighted by how the season ended. One person wrote: "The #Homeland finale of finales got it right where so many get it wrong. A gripping, bittersweet yet highly satisfying conclusion to a (mostly) excellent programme. Will miss it very much." Another added: "#Homeland knocked it out the park with that ending. This last season has been amazing. Probably the best ending to a show I’ve ever seen."
