"HOMELAND" RECRUITS NEW ASSETS FOR SEASON FIVE

SEBASTIAN KOCH, MIRANDA OTTO, SARAH SOKOLOVIC AND ALEXANDER FEHLING JOIN CAST AS SERIES REGULARS

LOS ANGELES, CA - JUNE 01, 2015 - Today, SHOWTIME(R) and Fox 21Television Studios announced four new series regulars for the upcoming fifth season of its Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R)-winning drama series HOMELAND. Celebrated German actor Sebastian Koch (THE LIVES OF OTHERS), acclaimed actress Miranda Otto (THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy), Alexander Fehling (INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS) and Sarah Sokolovic (COLD COMES THE NIGHT) have signed on to the cast and will begin filming in Berlin this week alongside returning series stars Claire Danes, Rupert Friend, F. Murray Abraham and Mandy Patinkin. Below are brief descriptions of the new characters:

OTTO DÜRING (Sebastian Koch), a German philanthropist and Carrie's (Danes) boss.

ALLISON CARR (Miranda Otto), the current Berlin Chief of Station, working directly under Saul Berenson (Patinkin).

LAURA SUTTON (Sarah Sokolovic), an American journalist in Berlin who works for the Düring Foundation.

JONAS HAPPICH (Alexander Fehling), legal counsel for the Düring Foundation and Carrie's boyfriend.

HOMELAND begins production tomorrow in Berlin, and will be the first American TV series to shoot entirely in Germany. Season five will pick up two years after Carrie Mathison's (Emmy, SAG and Golden Globe Award winner Claire Danes) ill-fated tenure as Islamabad station chief. Struggling to reconcile her guilt and disillusionment with years of working on the front lines in the "war on terror," Carrie finds herself in a self-imposed exile in Berlin, estranged from the CIA and working for a private security firm. HOMELAND's 12-episode season will premiere this fall on SHOWTIME.

Produced by Fox 21 Television Studios, HOMELAND was developed for American television by Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon, and is based on the original Israeli series "Prisoners of War" by Gideon Raff. Along with Gansa, Gordon and Raff, the executive producers for season five are Alexander Cary, Chip Johannessen, Meredith Stiehm, Patrick Harbinson, Lesli Linka Glatter, Avi Nir and Ran Telem.
