Danes has won two Emmys and two Golden Globes for her impressive performance as the long-running show's nearly anti-protagonist Carrie Mathison. I mean, it's a workout.

But Season 8 will be quite different.

"I can't speak for Claire or [co-star] Mandy [Patinkin], but it will be my final year and it will be created to be the end of an eight-season story", Gansa said. "We get to pull out all the stops this year and then get to the emotional heart of things in season 8", he said.
