Production on the fourth season of “Homeland” has shifted to Cape Town, South Africa where filming will take place from mid-June through November. Filming on the previous three seasons took place in Charlotte, Virginia.

The series was originally intended to shoot its fourth season in Israel to reflect the change in storyline which sees Carrie returning to the Middle East as chief of station. South Africa will now stand in for various locations within the Middle East. [Source: Showtime]
