We demand to be heard by the writers and producers of Homeland. Funds contributed here will go toward a coordinated media campaign to make the writers and producers sit up and listen.
We are a group of impassioned Homeland fans who have had enough.
After the season six finale of Homeland, many of us felt confused, crushed, and cheated.
We could not stand for the unceremonious and senseless death of Peter Quinn–himself a modern-day, unconventional veteran–nor for the downtrodden, relentlessly bleak storytelling, a far cry from the Homeland we had come to know and love.
We could not stand for this supposedly feminist show turning its smart, dynamic, difficult heroine in Carrie Mathison into a shell of herself. We could not stand for her journey being dictated and directed by mostly middle-aged white men.
And we really could not stand for the silence–from the writers, producers, distributors, and creators of Homeland. Not a word has been spoken of Peter Quinn’s importance to the show, its characters, and its narrative. Not a word has been spoken of Rupert Friend’s work. And not a word has been spoken of any of the above.
It has been over three months since Peter Quinn’s death, since the finale sealed the fate of a “new Homeland,” one in which prescience takes precedent over honest character progression and meaningful narrative.
This is not our Homeland. And we are fighting back.
