Rabat – The Sixth season of the hit American television series, “Homeland,” is being filmed in the Moroccan cities, of Rabat Temara, Skhirat, Tamesna and Salé, according to the Moroccan Cinematographic Centre (CCM).
Chilean Radio Cooperativa reported on Tuesday that the series’ shooting began on September 5 and will last until November 13.
The first scenes of the series were shot in New York, where Quinn fled to recover after being in danger in Berlin, the city in which Carrie, the protagonist of the show, supported him.
Cooperativa said, “Morocco has become the preferred destination for international directors to shoot the scenes that are supposed to take place in Iran, Syria, Iraq and Lebanon.”
“Morocco’s stability has played a major role in attracting international filmmakers to shoot their movies in the kingdom,” It added.
Over the past years, many blockbuster movies have been shot in Moroccan territory, including “Mission Impossible-Rogue Nation” starring Tom Cruise, Prison Break,” “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk,” and “Les Nouvelles Aventures d’Aladin,”
Last year, British news website The Guardian ranked Morocco among the Top 10 Destinations for worldwide filmmakers. Many regard the country as an “exotic” and “spiritual” place by virtue of its uniquelandscapes and ancient cities, such as Ouarzazate, which is known as the “Moroccan Hollywood.”
Well-known hit films such as “Asterix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatra,” “Lawrence of Arabia,” “The Man Would Be King,” “Kingdom of Heaven,” and “Babel” have all been shot in Ouarzazate.
The sixth season of “Homeland” will premiere on January 15, 2017.
