"He's alive so of course he'll be back," Gordon said. "One of the great challenges of next [season] is how he'll be back. But there's no doubt that he will be back."

Homeland's second season ended with Claire Danes's character Carrie Mathison helping Brody begin his new life as a fugitive.

Executive producer Alex Gansa had previously teased that Lewis's involvement in season three was "an open question".

"We had a much clearer picture of what the first two seasons would be than we do of what the third season would be," he said. "Damian's involvement and [the actors who play Brody's family] is very much up in the air."

Showtime boss David Nevins also hinted that Homeland could survive without Lewis.

Lewis won 'Best Actor In A Television Series (Drama)' at last night's Golden Globes for his role in Homeland. Co-star Danes won 'Best Actress In A Television Series (Drama)', while the show itself won 'Best Television Series (Drama)'.
