Showtime’s Golden Globe-winning TV series ‘Homeland‘ is heading back home – sort of.
For those not in the know, the popular series was adapted from the Israeli drama ‘Prisoners of War,’ and now producers have revealed a good chunk of the show’s second season will be filmed in Israel.
The series follows Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), a CIA operations officer who is assigned to the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center in Langley, Virginia. While on an unauthorized mission in Iraq, Carrie was warned by an inside source that an American prisoner of war had been turned by Al-Qaeda.
Her job grows more complicated when Nicholas Brody appears. Brody, a U.S. Marine Sergeant who had been reported as missing in action since 2003, has been rescued during a Delta Force raid on a compound belonging to terrorist Abu Nazir. Carries believes that Brody is the American prisoner of war that her asset in Iraq was talking about., yet Nicholas Brody is regarded as a war hero by her superiors.
Since making the move Stateside, the tense show has become Showtime’s highest-rated new drama series ever.
The second season of ‘Homeland‘ will premiere on September 30. Did you catch the first season, and will you be tuning in for the second?
