Outlander Season 5: Premiere Date, Cast, Trailer, Spoilers & News

Outlander has been hugely successful in generating a massive fanbase. Part of it was the bestselling novels by Diana Gabaldon on which the series is based on. Beautiful sets, great costumes, staying true to the original material and top-notch performances are what make this series quite enjoyable. So, it wasn’t much of a surprise when it was announced that the series will have an upcoming fourth instalment. Hell, it even has been renewed for fifth and sixth seasons.

Outlander Season 5 Plot: What is it about?

In season 4, we see Claire and Jaime trying to settle in by building their cabin. Ed Speelers’ Stephen Bonnet will be seen causing some trouble for Jaimie and Claire. The season also focuses on Brianna’s travel and her goals. It seems she wants to change the past and stop the Fire accident from occurring on Fraser’s Ridge. But does she? Watch it and find out!

Though the ground is warm for some dramatic upcoming season, there hasn’t been much confirmation about the plot by the creators. If you have read the book ‘Drums of Autumn’ you will have a pretty good idea of what’s coming. Word has it that Outlander’s writers have already begun work on the next season.

“We’re already back in the writers’ room. The writers are actually working not as we speak, hopefully, they’re on the weekend. But we are already working on season five,” executive producer Maril Davis said.

Outlander Season 5 Release Date: When will it premiere?

Season four premiered on 4th November 2018, slightly later than the September launch for season three but we didn’t mind as long it keeps getting renewed. It is all but good news for fans of Outlander that has been renewed for an additional two seasons (5 and 6).

“Fans can rest assured their beloved Claire and Jamie will be back facing new challenges, adversaries and adventures in seasons five and six as we delve into American history and continue the story of the Frasers as they settle in the New World,” President and CEO of Starz, Chris Albrecht said announced which showrunner Ronald Moore confirmed at the October 2018 Comic Con.

The news was followed by a wave of gratitude from its cast, and rejoice and anticipation from its fans who couldn’t seem to hold in their excitement at the prospect of their favourite show being renewed for two seasons. Actor Sam Heughan has confirmed that they even have a filming date set. At this rate, they should be finalizing an air date for season 5 soon enough as well.
