According to the production, the decision was made to ensure the safety of the crew amid the growing threat of hostilities between Russia and Ukraine. Filming will continue in Budapest.
Filming of the 10-episode long fourth season of Fauda has recently finished shooting in Israel and was due to continue in Ukraine, but will now take place “in several locations in Budapest”, the spokesman said. Filming in Hungary has not yet started, but “is scheduled to begin around mid-March”. The new season is still scheduled to air in Israel in mid-2022 and later on will be available on Netflix.
Fauda, which means “chaos” in Arabic, is a collaboration between Lior Raz and Avi Issacharoff, originally produced by Israeli satellite television platform and content provider Yes.
The series was an immediate success after season one was broadcasted in Israel in 2015. It was picked up by one of the biggest online streaming services, Netflix, in 2016. It is currently available in 190 countries under the “Netflix Original” label.
Back in December the trailer and cast photos for the fourth season of Fauda were released. According to our sources, the new season’s premise will be about how the Israeli secret units are striving to tear down the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah from inside and destroy the Palestinian partisans in the West Bank.
