Homeland to move away from "US relations in the Muslim world" for Season 5

Written by

Following the success of its brilliant fourth season, Showtime recently confirmed that Homeland would be returning to screens once again in the autumn. What's more, producer David Nevins has hinted that the show might be relocating in time for Season 5

Despite both being heavily tipped to walk away with an award, Homeland and Game of Thrones left Sunday's 2015 Golden Globes empty handed. Showtime's superb political thriller recently wrapped up its acclaimed fourth season, with the network confirming that a fifth series had been ordered to premiere later this year. After Episode 12, "Long Time Coming" brought Homeland Season 4 to a close, Showtime's David Nevins defended the season's finale following mixed reviews from fans. This week, Nevins answered questions from fans and critics at the 2015 TCA winter press tour, revealing that dramatic changes could be in the works for Season 5. melty. com tells you more

Addressing speculation about where Homeland's fifth season will be set, Nevins said: "Where are they going to go next year is a little bit up in the air and not necessarily going to stay now and forever about [this conflict]... They showed this year it's ultimately about U.S. foreign policy and U.S. intelligence in the 21st century, in a very difficult time. We're exploring a few different possibilities, we may change it up a little bit." He commented that Homeland's essential premise remained as compelling as ever: "The real franchise of the show is how difficult it is to be America in the world in the 21st century... I think that's story that will remain relevant as long as they can come up with new stories - could be Africa, could be Europe, could be back in another place in the Middle East." Where do you think Homeland Season 5 should be set?
