Showtime president David Nevins has dropped hints about the forthcoming second season of Homeland.

The psychological drama, which stars Claire Danes and Damian Lewis, was picked up for 12 more episodes in October.

"I wouldn't necessarily assume that season two begins the day after season one ended," Nevins told reporters at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour.

He added that the complex relationship between unstable CIA agent Carrie (Danes) and Nicholas Brody (Lewis) "[has] only just begun".

Nevins also admitted that a second run of Homeland will face "justified skepticism" following the success of the first season.

"The writers have some very clever answers for that," he said. "[They're] one step ahead of the doubting Thomases."

The extended Homeland season finale pulled in a record 1.7m viewers for Showtime in December.

The show's executive producers Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon recently suggested that the second season will have a different "tenor".

"Brody... is done committing a big attack on the United States," said Gansa. "He's got another trajectory that is much more insidious, a long-game political one."

Homeland's second season will air on Showtime in 2012. The first season will air on Channel 4 in the UK.
