Homeland is coming back home.

After becoming the first U.S. series to shoot an entire season in Berlin for its fifth season, the Showtime national security drama will relocate to the New York area for its sixth season next year, the network’s CEO David Nevins announced at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Pasadena, Calif., on Tuesday.

“[After setting the show in] Afghanistan, Pakistan and Europe, [we] wanted to do another America story,” Nevins said, according to Entertainment Weekly. “Also, I think the actors will be happy to be back in the U.S. For a year. I don’t think it’s necessarily going to stay there forever, but there was a strong interest in doing a domestic story from the creative team.”

Previous seasons of the show, which stars Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin, have filmed in North Carolina, Morocco and South Africa.
