As reported by the folks over at TV Line , actor Diego Klattenhoff, who has played “Uncle Mike” and the “other man” in the lives of Sgt. Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) and his wife Jessica (Morena Baccarin) in the Showtime series Homeland will not be returning as a series regular.

Homeland fans were given an exciting second season finale that also left them wondering about the fate of Damian Lewis’ character Brody, until now. As shared by TV Line , executive producer Howard Gordon has confirmed to the outlet that Brody is sure to be back for season 3 of the series. “He’s alive so of course he’ll be back.
