Claire Danes to film Homeland season 4 in Cape Town

Filming for the next installment of the political thriller is set to start this June in South Africa

Hit Showtime series Homeland, starring Claire Danes as Carrie Mathison and Damian Lewis as Nicholas Brody, will move from Charlotte in North Carolina to Cape Town in sunny South Africa.


Filming for the next series will commence from June until November. The show’s executive producer, Alex Gansa, explained: “We knew going into season four that we would need to move the production overseas to tell the story of Carrie returning to the Middle East as chief of station.”

“We are thrilled to have found a new home in Cape Town and look forward to getting the season four production off the ground.”

At the end of season three, Brody is dead after being publicly hanged in Iran from a JCB. Carrie is having Brody’s baby, she is heavily pregnant, and has been given a promotion by Lockhart to head up the CIA office in Istanbul.  

It’s believed that Cape Town will double for scenes on the frontline and in Turkey.

The new 12-episode season of Homeland will air in late 2014. See here for more Homeland filming locations.
