What a change of scenery for our favorite CIA operative, Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), in season five of the Emmy-award winning Showtime® drama Homeland. Production of the 12-episode series begins this summer in Berlin, Germany, and picks up two years after Carrie leaves Islamabad.

Below is the official press release.


Season Five of the Emmy-Award Winning SHOWTIME® Drama HOMELAND To Begin Production

In Berlin, Germany This Summer

LOS ANGELES, CA – April 27, 2015 – SHOWTIME and Fox 21 Television Studios have announced today that season five of the Emmy® and Golden Globe® award winning series HOMELAND will shoot on location in Germany.  Beginning production in early June at the famed Studio Babelsberg in Berlin, HOMELAND will become the first American television series to shoot a full season entirely in Germany.  Season five will pick-up two years after Carrie Mathison’s (Emmy®, SAG and Golden Globe Award® winner Claire Danes) ill-fated tenure as Islamabad station chief.  Struggling to reconcile her guilt and disillusionment with years of working on the front lines in the “war on terror,” Carrie finds herself in a self-imposed exile in Berlin, estranged from the CIA and working for a private security firm.  HOMELAND’s 12episode season will premiere this fall on SHOWTIME.

Produced by Fox 21 Television Studios, HOMELAND was developed for American television by Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon, and is based on the original Israeli series “Prisoners of War” by Gideon Raff.  Along with Gansa, Gordon and Raff, the executive producers for season five are Alexander Cary, Chip Johannessen, Meredith Stiehm, Patrick Harbinson, Lesli Linka Glatter, Avi Nir and Ran Telem.
