Showtime picks up 'Homeland" for another season

Claire Danes in "Homeland"
Showtime announced Monday that its spy thriller "Homeland," filmed in Charlotte for its first three seasons, will be renewed next year.

Also getting a renewal is the freshman drama "The Affair" starring Ruth Wilson, Joshua Jackson, Dominic West and Maura Tierney.

Charlotte stood in for Washington for the first three seasons of "Homeland," then it moved away when Claire Danes' character was moved to the Mideast. Her CIA assignment takes her to the U.S. embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan. Showtime expects to make 10 to 12 episodes of "Homeland" for the next season.
