Homeland: Carrie's Got a New Boyfriend, and More Season 5 Castings

Homeland Season 5 Cast Alexander Fehling

Quinn who?

When Homeland returns for Season 5 this fall, Carrie Mathison will have a new man on her arm: Alexander Fehling (Inglourious Basterds) will play Jonas Happich, a lawyer dating the former Islamabad station chief during her self-imposed exile in Berlin.

In addition to Fehling, Showtime announced three additional series-regular castings Monday: Miranda Otto (The Lord of the Rings films) as Allison Carr, the current Berlin Chief of Station, who’s working directly under Saul; Sebastian Koch (A Good Day to Die Hard) as Otto Düring, a German philanthropist and Carries’ boss; and Sarah Sokolovic (The Good Wife) as an American journalist in Berlin who works for the foundation where Carrie and Jonas are employed.

The drama’s fifth season will pick up nearly three years after the Season 4 finale, which found Quinn and Carrie going their separate ways.

Homeland begins filming its upcoming season this week in Germany.

    Do we know if Quinn is even in this new season????

  2. Alex says:

    New boyfriend? Oh no what about Carrie and Quinn? Does Quinn die on his mission or something? Huh. Well at least Homeland keeps it interesting.

  3. Dean says:

    Who’s betting that by seasons end these new commers will be gone/ killed off?

  4. Tania says:

    Ok, well, no reason to watch the new season now. Quinn and Quinn/Carrie have been the best parts of the show after the first season.

  5. John Davis says:

    Year in and year out, and we still don’t have African-American actors in this show. The only one with a important role (David Harewood) only lived for one season.

  6. I really hope something is done about Dar Adal next season

  7. Maria says:

    but Peter Quinn! PETER QUINN!!!!

  8. Mr. Tran K says:

    Quinn should be coming back in Season 5 as does Dar Adal. I predict that F. Murray Abraham’s character will bite the dust during the upcoming season. Couple of questions: #1 – with Alex Cary and Chip Johannessen both taking leaves of absence, will new writers/producers be joining the writing staff for Season 5? and #2 – will Lockhart and Saul be returning as does Max and possibly Virgil who’s been MIA throughout the entire season last year?

  9. james says:

    Viewers shouldn’t expect the same characters every season, the shows main focus is on Carrie’s dysfunctional relationship with the CIA.

  10. BrianR says:

    I will be extremely disappointed if Carrie isn’t hunting down that Paki bitch and killing her

  11. Time jump- good. I hope they give Carrie a better-looking kid. That’s all I’m-a-say-bout-dat.

  12. Zoe says:

    Bummed out that Carrie and Quinn finally happened only for it to be taken away in Season 5 with the casting of a new boyfriend. Next time I gotta remind myself not to be so invested in fictional characters. Sigh.

  13. Miranda says:

    Another ginger! And I already feel so sorry for him…

  14. kate says:

    what the heck a new boyfriend. does that mean quinns dead now. nooooo i really enjoyed carrie and quinn :(

    You HAVE TO bring Quinn back into Carries life…as her own was misled…she HAS TO let him know she was brought up on a LIE & DECISIONS were made based on that lie…
