Homeland Season 5 Eyes Time Jump, Location Shift, New Gig for Carrie

TVLine Thankful For

Homeland won’t be returning to the States in Season 5.

Despite buzz that the Showtime drama was headed back to the U.S. after a season spent in South Africa (standing in for Pakistan), exec producer Alex Gansa announced at PaleyFest Friday that Carrie & Co. would be putting down stakes in Europe.

“We’re shooting in Germany,” he told the crowd, before dropping an even bigger bombshell: “Carrie will no longer be an intelligence officer.”

The EP went on to tease that Season 5 — which is set to bow in September — will jump ahead two and a half years.
