It looks like Homeland is pressing pause on production for its sixth season! It turns out Rupert Friend recently broke his ankle, and the Showtime series is taking a break from filming while he recovers.
On Saturday, the actor dished to Deadline that he wasn't working when he became injured, but that the fracture was caused, in part, by issues he had while shooting seasons 4 and 5.

Apparently, when the 34-year-old rolled his ankle back then, it weakened his ligaments, which made him more prone to this injury.
But, executive producer Lesli Linka Glatter is working on rescheduling scenes, so she can still shoot some scenes around the UK native's absence.
The Pride and Prejudice alum is grateful that the cast and crew have been so flexible regarding his injury, saying:
"Everyone has been very accommodating."
The gorgeous guy is hopeful that his soft cast will be removed in a few weeks, so he can get back to filming. And, despite the delays, the shows is still slated to be finished in time for its January 15, 2017 premiere date.
Feel better soon, Rupert!
