Showtime has released a new teaser for Homeland's upcoming third season.

The moody promo – which featured the show’s stars Claire Danes and Damian Lewis - is dialogue-free and features Adele's cover version of The Cure’s Lovesong.

The trailer sees lovers Carrie (Danes) and Brody (Damian Lewis) apparently reunited, only to reveal that the pair remain apart. Saul (Mandy Patinkin) is seen settling into his new role at the CIA.

Fox 21's Bert Salke recently claimed that Homeland will be a different, "more emotional" show in its third season.

"There are bigger developments character-wise this year than there have been," he said. "It's a more emotional show this year, and 2.0 means that other characters are going to come in."

Homeland returns to Showtime on September 29 in the US, and will follow on RTÉ Two.
