Showtime has officially released a synopsis for the fifth season of Homeland, which sees Carrie (Claire Danes) moving to yet another location.
Homeland has seen a lot of upheaval over the years, whether it be the loss of Brody (Damian Lewis) or the show moving primarily to the Middle East. Now, Danes and company are moving from South Africa, where they filmed in season 4, to Germany for season 5.
Showtime details what's ahead for Carrie's big move.
"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," the press release reads. "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."
The network says that shooting in Berlin, Germany will begin in early June at Studio Babelsberg. Showtime notes that Homeland will be the first American TV series to shoot its entire season in Germany.
Obviously this will be a big departure yet again for the show. With the first three seasons mostly centered in America and season 4 in the Middle East, the European location will likely have a very different feeling than previous seasons.
Showtime also revealed that season 5 will have 12 episodes, just like the first four seasons.
Homeland season 5 is expected to premiere in the fall, likely September or October, on Showtime.
