‘Homeland’ Enlists Miranda Otto, More for Season Five

1 June 2015 3:48 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Homeland” has recruited four new series regulars to join Claire Danes’ reckless CIA agent Carrie Mathisen on her missions.

The Showtime drama welcomes Miranda Otto, Sebastian Koch, Sarah Sokolovic and Alexander Fehling as series regulars in the upcoming Berlin-set fifth season.

Picking up two years after her ill-fated tenure as Islamabad station chief, the new season finds Carrie estranged from the CIA and working for a private security firm in Germany. But it sounds like Carrie can’t escape her past: Otto plays current Berlin Chief of Station Allison Carr, who is working directly under Carrie’s CIA mentor, Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin).

Other casting details were equally vague. Koch plays Otto Düring, a German philanthropist with an eponymous foundation and Carrie’s boss. Sokolovic plays Laura Sutton, an American journalist who works with Carrie. Fehling plays Jonas Happich, legal counsel for the Düring Foundation and Carrie’s boyfriend.

Showtime also confirmed that Rupert Friend, »

Homeland Is Flashing Forward for Season 5

7 March 2015 12:34 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Homeland is jumping two and a half years into the future and will most likely take place in Germany for its fifth season. "We are going to be shooting the show in Europe, probably in Germany, and Carrie will no longer be an intelligence officer," said Alex Gansa, one of the co-creators of the show, at Friday night's PaleyFest in Los Angeles. Claire Danes, who plays lead Carrie Mathison joked, "I'll be making beer." Don't expect her just to be a bored hausfrau, though. "Carrie is always most alive in situations that are duplicitous," said Gansa. Fellow executive producer Alex Cary added, "Carrie is a little nutty, but she’s right most of the time." So, hausfrau/spy? »

"Homeland" Heads To Europe, Jumps Forward

7 March 2015 9:38 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Alex Gansa, an executive producer on Showtime's "Homeland," has confirmed that the show's new season will jump forward around two-and-a-half years.

Speaking during the opening night of PaleyFest, Gansa says Claire Danes’ Carrie Mathison will “no longer be an intelligence officer" and the show will shift its filming location to Europe, most likely Germany.

Last season used South Africa to stand in for Pakistan, with the final episode returning to Washington DC. Gansa says he can't reveal where the next season is set just yet.

One key difference is that writers Alex Cary and Chip Johannessen will be taking leaves of absence from the show during the upcoming season.
