"Homeland" in its upcoming season will feature a number of guest appearances from actors who have been in series as varied as "How I Met Your Mother" and "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit."

The third season of the Emmy-winning drama, which stars Claire Danes, Damian Lewis and Mandy Patinkin, premieres Sept. 29, and opens during the aftermath of the horrific terrorist attack that decimated the U.S. intelligence apparatus and prompted a global manhunt for the world's most wanted terrorist, Nicholas Brody (Lewis).

As agents Carrie (Danes) and Saul (Patinkin) recover personally and professionally from the attack, they are swept up in the political and media firestorm surrounding the incidents and the subsequent search for Brody.

Among the guest stars are Joanna Merlin ("Law & Order: Special Victims Unit"), Nazanin Boniadi ("How I Met Your Mother"), Amy Morton ("Boss"), Gary Wilmes ("Louie") and Tracy Letts ("Prison Break").
