Carrie Mathison’s New York minute is up.
Homeland is staying put in the U.S. in Season 7, but production will relocate from the Big Apple to Central Virginia. This will mark the second consecutive season that the Showtime thriller will shoot at home after spending several years abroad.
Meanwhile, in addition to series stars Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin, Elizabeth Marvel’s President Elizabeth Keane is expected back, as is Linus Roache, who last season guest-starred as POTUS’ right-hand man. It’s unclear if F. Murray Abraham will be returning given Dar’s incarceration. (We can go ahead and confirm that Rupert Friend’s dearly departed Quinn will not be back.)
“We’re thrilled to bring the production of Homeland to the great state of Virginia,” enthused showrunner/exec producer Alex Gansa in a statement. “Its cities and neighborhoods and people will surely provide a rich backdrop for our story, and we in turn aim to provide a small but hopefully significant boost to the local economy.”
Production on Homeland Season 7 will commence this fall ahead of an early 2018 return.
