'Homeland' Announces Big Time Jump For Season 5

"Homeland" is having a major shakeup for Season 5.

At a panel at Los Angeles PaleyFest on Friday night, co-creator Alex Gansa revealed the show would jump forward 2 1/2 years for the upcoming season. He also revealed Carrie will no longer have the C.I.A position she'd held since the series' inception.

"We are going to be shooting the show in Europe, probably in Germany, and Carrie will no longer be an intelligence officer," he said.

For fans who stopped watching "Homeland" after -- spoiler alert -- the character Brody was killed off at the end of Season 3, this sure sounds like the perfect time to hop back on board: Carrie living in Germany (probably), not working as an intelligence officer and, surely, getting up to her own new kinds of no good.
