It appears Homeland fans literally couldn’t wait for the Season 3 premiere: The episode has leaked online nearly a full month ahead of its Sept. 29 premiere, TorrentFreak reports.

Within hours being uploaded to BitTorrent on Monday, more than 100,000 users downloaded the unfinished version of the premiere, which is missing some visual effects and the opening credits.

According to Deadline, 20th Century Fox, which produces the show, has its anti-piracy unit working to fix the leak. When an unfinished version of Wolverine was pirated in 2009, 20th Century Fox teamed up with the FBI to find the person behind the leak. The FBI eventually arrested Gilberto Sanchez, who received one year in jail.

Homeland premieres Sunday, Sept. 29 at 9/8c on Showtime.
