The castings help answer the question of how the series will move on after the (spoiler alert) death of Sgt. Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) at the end of Season 3. Robins will play Martha Boyd, the no-nonsense United States Ambassador to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Stoll will guest star as Sandy Bachman, the CIA Chief of Station in Pakistan and a rising star in the agency.
Stoll is busy: He’s the lead in FX’s vampire drama “The Strain,” premiering next month. He also broke out as Ernest Hemingway in the film “Midnight in Paris.“
The Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning series begins production later this month in Cape Town, South Africa. The new season follows Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), who is pregnant with Brody’s baby, along with her mentor Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin).
The show, which averages seven million weekly viewers, returns to Showtime in the fall.
