If there is one thing that you can definitely say about “Homeland” at this point, it is that it is truly an international show. We’ve seen it filmed everywhere from North Carolina to Morocco to most recently South Africa, which was a stand-in for the Middle East throughout most of the fourth season.
So where could the show go next? That is still somewhat unclear, but Showtime head David Nevins tells the Boston Herald that showrunner Alex Gansa will probably take the writers on a “field trip” of sorts to Washington, where they can meet with various officials who have a real sense of what is actually going on in the world.
One of the reasons that we see this as such a hot-button debate for the writers to figure out here is that many people seem to ultimately appreciate the show for a variety of different reasons. For example, we prefer more of the political side of things, which is why we’re find if the show stays in America and goes in a more subtle route.
However, at the same time we would not be altogether shocked if the show returns to South Africa or somewhere else to shoot more new episodes, given that you also have a heavy contingent of people who love the show when it has a little more in common with “24,” where there is a sense of constant peril and action within almost every episode.
We will have some further news related to “Homeland” hopefully next year, when the writers really start to get going on stories.
