According to Israeli media, the American producers of the show contacted their Israeli counterparts on Sunday to notify them of the decision. Estimates say that Israeli production companies are set to lose hundreds of thousands of shekels over the location change.

“Homeland” was adapted from the Israeli drama “Hatufim” (“Prisoners of War”). Its first season hit an all-time high for a new drama series on Showtime, the U.S. cable channel that has broadcasting rights for the show.

In the meantime, a U.S. strike on Syria is on indefinite hold after America and Russia agreed to Russia’s proposal to bring Syria’s chemical weapons stockpile under international control.
