Filming is about to get underway this month in Cape Town, South Africa on Showtime’s critically acclaimed series Homeland, and the network has just announced the addition of two key cast members. Joining the series for season four are Laila Robins (Bored To Death, In Treatment) and Corey Stoll (House of Cards). According to the announcement, Robins will be a series regular while Stoll is attached as a guest star.

Here’s the scoop on who each new cast member will be playing:

– “Robins joins as a series regular in the role of Martha Boyd, the United States Ambassador to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, who is professional and put together, with a ship-to-ship voice and the personality to match.”

– “Stoll will guest star as Sandy Bachman, the CIA Chief of Station in Pakistan and a rising star in the Agency’s firmament. The series’ fourth season will begin production later this month in Cape Town, South Africa.”

Homeland season four will debut this fall. Season three, which featured the death of a few major characters, pulled in an average of seven million viewers.

In addition to Bored To Death and In Treatment, Robins’ TV credits include The Sopranos, Person of Interest, Blue Bloods, Damages, Law and Order, Too Big To Fail, and Gabriel’s Fire.

Stoll’s TV work The Normal Heart, Law & Order: Los Angeles, and new series The Strain.

The Homeland Plot:

Homeland tells the story of Carrie Mathison (Emmy, SAG and Golden Globe Award winner Claire Danes), a bi-polar CIA officer who plays by her own rules. At the end of last season Carrie, pregnant with the late Brody’s (Damian Lewis) baby, along with her mentor Saul Berenson (Emmy and Tony Award winner Mandy Patinkin), brought a significant and much-needed win for the agency and country at large. Season four will find Carrie assigned to one of the most volatile and dangerous CIA stations in the Middle East where she is back on the front lines in the war on terror. Along with Danes and Patinkin, Emmy nominee Rupert Friend will return for season four, along with Nazanin Boniadi, who was recently promoted to a series regular.
