Outlander Gets Season 5 Premiere Date

Outlander Season 5 Premiere Date Starz

Outlander‘s fiery cross will begin blazing on Sunday, Feb. 16, 2020, the Starz series announced Thursday.

Stars Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan also let fans know during an Instagram Q&A Thursday.

In addition, Starz announced that the historical drama’s New York Comic Con panel will take place on Saturday, Oct. 5, at 5:30 at The Hulu Theatre at Madison Square Garden. Panelists include Balfe, Heughan, Duncan LaCroix, Maria Doyle Kennedy, David Berry and author Diana Gabaldon. Good Morning America meteorologist Ginger Zee will moderate.

Production on Season 5 began in May and was chronicled by a video showing the cast — including Balfe, Heughan, Lacroix, Sophie Skelton and Richard Rankin — during an outdoor shoot that will be featured in a forthcoming episode.

If the series follows its one-book-per-season formula, Season 5 will be based on the events of Gabaldon’s The Fiery Cross. Season 4 ended with Roger returning to Brianna after a prolonged absence (during which she gave birth to their son) and Jamie getting orders from the British to hunt down his rebel godfather, Murtagh (who’d managed to hook up with Jamie’s Aunt Jocasta before he went on the lam).
