Get ready for some chilling news.

Homeland, Showtime's terrifyingly awesome psychological thriller, has been renewed for a second season, the network announced today.

Does this mean the return of both Damian Lewis and Claire Danes?

Showtime isn't saying whether the two leads—especially Lewis' maybe/possibly/probably terrorist Nick Brody—but David Nevins, the cabler's president of entertainment, reveals this: "Homeland is just getting started."

Nevins credits executive producers Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa with creating a show "that holds special relevance in the post 9/11 world. I'm quite confident that its passionate audience will be riveted as the season unfolds and people discover where this story is going."

It's going to keep messing with our heads, you mean.

The one-hour drama, which also stars Morena Baccarin, David Harewood, Diego Klattenhoff, Morgan Saylor and Jackson Pace, premiered as Showtime's highest-rated freshman drama series ever and its audience is growing: Sunday's episode delivered the freshman series' best ratings to date.

Season two will begin production in spring 2012.

Are you as thrilled as we are that we'll get a second helping of Homeland? Do you think Damian Lewis' character will survive to see another season? Let us know in the comments!
