Are you ready to say goodbye to Carrie Mathison?

Claire Danes recently told Howard Stern that "Homeland" would end after Season 8. Showtime still hasn't shared an official statement on that, but "Homeland" showrunner Alex Gansa further confirmed the news, and shared more details on the final season.

Season 7 is currently airing, continuing the mostly D.C.-based political storyline of President Elizabeth Keane (Elizabeth Marvel). But Season 8 will be quite different. Here's what Gansa told Entertainment Weekly:

"We're going to start fresh in Season 8 and probably do a fairly big time jump between 7 and 8 and put any Trump parallels behind us. We'll tell a very contained story, hopefully in Israel. [...] We get to play a story with larger national stakes in Season 7 and we'll go back to a smaller intelligence-based season in 8. We get to pull out all the stops this year and then get to the emotional heart of things in Season 8."

This wouldn't be the first time "Homeland" had a "fairly big time jump" -- remember the two-year jump between Seasons 4 and 5? It's good to know they have a plan in place for how to end this sprawling story.

"Homeland" Season 7 ends its 12-episode season Sunday, April 29 on Showtime.
