‘Homeland’ Set for Summer Shoot in South Africa

Showtime and Fox 21 announced Friday that award-winning drama series “Homeland” is set to begin production in Cape Town, South Africa.

Production will begin in mid-June and continue through November on the popular drama centered around bipolar CIA agent Carrie Mathison, played by Claire Danes.

“We’ve been so lucky to work with one of the best crews in the business for the last three seasons in Charlotte,” “Homeland” showrunner and exec producer Alex Gansa said in a statement. “We knew going into season four that we would need to move the production overseas to tell the story of Carrie returning to the Middle East as chief of station.  We are thrilled to have found a new home in Cape Town and look forward to getting season four production off the ground.”

The show’s fourth season, set to premiere this fall, finds Carrie back on the front lines in the war on terror as she is assigned to one of the most volatile and dangerous CIA stations in the Middle East.

In addition to stars Danes and Mandy Patinkin, Rupert Friend will also return for season four, along with Nazanin Boniadi, who was recently promoted to a series regular.
