Carrie Mathison and the Homeland crew are heading back to their native USA.

After basing season five of the Claire Daines-starring drama in the German capital Berlin, the next run of episodes will take place back on the other side of the Atlantic, in New York.

Showtime President and CEO David Nevins confirmed at the TCA Press Tour that the show would shoot in New York City and the state of Maryland.

Nevins and President of Programming Gary Levine also spoke about the fate of Rupert Friend's character Quinn, who apparently died in the season five finale, A False Glimmer.

"I know exactly as much as you guys know and have seen," said Nevins. "The writers do things for very specific reasons, they're very careful in what they show and how they tell the story. So clearly there is no definitive answer given from what we've seen so far."

Levine was a bit more direct, but still vague.

"Quinn is severely damaged, there is no question about it," he said. "If he should live, it will not be in any way, shape or form how he has lived to date."
