Homeland 4 to film in Cape Town
Season 4 of Homeland will shoot in Cape Town, South Africa from mid-June to November this year. The city is new territory for producers of the award-winning drama series, who used Charlotte, North Carolina as the main filming location for the last three seasons.
The new series will find Carrie (Claire Danes) assigned to the Middle East in the ongoing war on terror. Co-stars Mandy Patinkin, Rupert Friend and Nazanin Boniadi will also return.
Homeland showrunner and executive producer Alex Gansa said: “We’ve been so lucky to work with one of the best crews in the business for the last three seasons in Charlotte. 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 political thriller was developed for TV by Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon and is based on the original Israeli series Hatufim (Prisoners of War) by Gideon Raff. Along with Gansa, Gordon and Raff, the executive producers for season four are Alexander Cary, Chip Johannessen, Meredith Stiehm, Avi Nir and Ran Telem. It is produced by FOX 21.
Season four will premiere this autumn on the Showtime network.
