‘Homeland’ Season 4 Will Film In South Africa

After the shakeup at the end of “Homeland” Season 3 and the promotion of Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), it was obvious that the next season would have to reinvent itself. But the shift may be greater than we previously believed.
Deadline is reporting that “Homeland” has shifted its production from North Carolina to South Africa for the new season of “Homeland.” This suggests that a great deal of time will be spent on Carrie’s new assignment in the Middle East. However, it isn’t clear if it will take place in Istanbul, where Carrie was assigned in the third season finale.
The report notes that Carrie has been “assigned to one of the most volatile and dangerous CIA stations in the Middle East where she is back on the front lines in the war on terror.” 
“Homeland” showrunner, Alex Gansa also issued a statement about leaving North Carolina after spending the first three seasons of the show there. “We’ve been so lucky to work with one of the best crews in the business for the last three seasons in Charlotte,” said Gansa. “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 fourth season of “Homeland’ is expected to begin filming in June before premiering on Showtime in the fall.
