“We would rather have it good than fast,” Gary Levin, Showtime’s co-entertainment president said during the network’s executive session at the Television Critics Association press tour on Friday. “There have been no missteps here. It’s been a relatively smooth process, but a very ambitious production schedule that has just taken more time than we hoped it would.”
Showtime announced earlier on Friday that the Claire Danes-led drama’s final season will premiere on Feb. 9, 2020. Earlier this year, Showtime was eyeing a fall premiere date for the show’s final season. When it returns, it will have been nearly two years since its seventh season aired.
