SHOWTIME and Fox 21 Television Studios have announced that season five of the Emmy® and Golden Globe® award winning series HOMELAND will shoot on location in Germany.  Beginning production in early June at the famed Studio Babelsberg in Berlin, HOMELAND will become the first American television series to shoot a full season entirely in Germany

Season five will pick-up two years after Carrie Mathison’s (Emmy®, SAG and Golden Globe Award® winner Claire Danes) ill-fated tenure as Islamabad station chief.  Struggling to reconcile her guilt and disillusionment with years of working on the front lines in the “war on terror,” Carrie finds herself in a self-imposed exile in Berlin, estranged from the CIA and working for a private security firm.  HOMELAND’s 12-episode season will premiere this fall on SHOWTIME.
Produced by Fox 21 Television Studios, HOMELAND was developed for American television by Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon, and is based on the original Israeli series "Prisoners of War" by Gideon Raff.  Along with Gansa, Gordon and Raff, the executive producers for season five are Alexander Cary, Chip Johannessen, Meredith Stiehm, Patrick Harbinson, Lesli Linka Glatter, Avi Nir and Ran Telem.

The newly formed Fox 21 Television Studios is a production unit housed within Fox Television Group devoted to making creatively ambitious scripted and unscripted series for all distribution platforms.
