‘Homeland’ Season 4 Spoilers: Production Heads to South Africa for Middle East Setting

Homeland Season 4 Spoilers South Africa Middle East

Last season’s ‘Homeland‘ finale, “The Star,” understandably shot things up for a fresh start in season 4, but so far we’d only gotten vague hints as to where we’d pick up with Carrie Mathison (Emmy winner Claire Danes) on assignment. Now, Showtime reveals that production will head to South Africa for season 4, even if Carrie & co. face a different mission in another dangerous part of the world.

You’re warned of spoilers from the third season of ‘Homeland’ from here on out, but despite the season 3 finale that saw a still-pregnant Carrie taking an assignment to Istanbul, season 4 may not follow that exact thread. Showtime wouldn’t reveal where its new production in Cape Town, South Africa, might double for, but at least offered that Carrie will be “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.”

So far, relatively little is known of the fourth season of Showtime’s Emmy-winning drama, though past series regulars Morena Baccarin and Morgan Saylor will have understandably reduced (if not entirely omitted) presences in season 4, while Nazanin Boniadi’s Fara has been upped to regular. Mandy Patinkin’s Saul Berenson and Rupert Friend’s Peter Quinn have been confirmed to return, as well, while season 4 will return to the character’s roots as a competent case officer in a foreign country. Additionally, acclaimed scribe Meredith Stiehm will return to the writer’s room full time, having been minimally present in season 3 to work on FX drama ‘The Bridge.’

We’re excited to see if ‘Homeland’ can reclaim its former glory after the shakeup, and South Africa seems like a promising start, so what say you? What do you want to see from Carrie’s ‘Homeland’ season 4 adventures?
