The Golden Globe-winning television series, Homeland, will film part of its second season at home – in Israel. The American hit series, after all, is an adaption of Israel’s Hatufim.

Reports quoted Showtime spokeswoman Chloe Comins as saying that most of the second season will again be shot in Charlotte, N.C. but that filming will also take place in Israel.

The American version of the show features Claire Danes as a CIA operations officer who follows a US Marine (actor Damien Lewis) whom she suspects has turned into a spy after being held by al-Qaida as a prisoner of war.

Small parts of the first season were also shot in Israel, but it seems the second season will include more Israeli landscapes.

The second season of Homeland is set to begin September 30.
