The upcoming season of Showtime’s political thriller “Homeland” will be set in New York, as confirmed by David Nevins and Gary Levine of Showtime Networks.
Nevins, who is the president and CEO of Showtime Networks, said at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour on Tuesday that the upcoming season of the series will be shot in and around New York.
The previous seasons of “Homeland” were set in several international locations such as South Africa, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Season 5 was the first American TV series to shoot an entire season in Berlin.
As reported by Entertainment Weekly, after featuring so many foreign places in the show, the network wanted to do the next season in America.
“We want to do another America story. It will be set domestically and New York will be primary setting for the season. However, some of the scenes will be set and shot in other places,” Nevins said.
Nevins also praised the executive producer of “Homeland,” Alex Gansa, and said that the network is “in awe” of how Gansa and his team have reinvented the series every year.
Talking about the fate of Quinn (Rupert Friend), who seemingly died in the season finale episode of season 5, Showtime’s programming president Gary Levine said that “Quinn is severely damaged.” However, he didn’t reveal any further information regarding Quinn’s fate in the upcoming season.
“There is no question about it. The life-or-death question remains. But if he should live, it will not be in any way, shape or form the way he has lived to date,” Levine said.
Levine’s comments hint that Quinn is going to be in season 6. However, it might take a long time for him to recover from his wounds and injuries.
There is a significant possibility that Quinn will return to the show as a changed person. Whether that change will be a physical or emotional one, will be seen only in the next season.
“Homeland” season 6 will air this fall.
