For three years "Homeland" has called Charlotte home, now for the show, Charlotte is a distant memory. Show executives announced Friday afternoon that the show will start filming season 4 in Cape Town, South Africa.

The decision has some local actors and actresses wondering what is next not only for "Homeland" but also what direction the film industry is headed in North Carolina.

"Homeland" is not the only major production to leave North Carolina. "The Hunger Games" filmed the first movie in North Carolina then moved to Georgia for the sequel.

Many believe it is because the tax incentive that is currently in North Carolina for filmmakers and producers might not be renewed at the end of the year. Now the film industry receives a 25% tax break.

The officials in Raleigh will gather in May to start to formulate a new or renewed deal to keep the tax incentives for the state.
