Season five is slated to be the most dramatic after the cast reportedly broke down at the screening of the first episode. Starz recommissioned the show for two series in 2018, so there will be a season five and six. Express.co.uk has everything you need to know about season five of Outlander, so read on for the latest updates.
Will there be another series of Outlander?
Yes, is the simple answer. Outlander season five is going to be happening after Starz confirmed the news in 2018.
The news was announced back in May with the network’s CEO Chris Albrecht saying: “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.”
Caitriona Balfe recently shared a first look shot confirming filming had started on Outlander season five.
She recently posted another picture on Instagram of the script for the new series.
Following the announcement, actress Caitriona Balfe couldn’t contain her excitement: “So thrilled to announce that we have been picked up for not one but two more seasons.
“This series has been such a dream come true and to know that we will get to continue to tell the story of these characters that we love so much makes me so bl**dy happy.”
Prior to season five, Sam Heughan was convinced that the show would be back, telling Entertainment Weekly: “We are certainly going to do it. I have no doubt we are doing a season five.”
Outlander is based on the book series by Diana Gabaldon, who has written a total of eight novels so far in the saga of the star-crossed lovers and shows no signs of stopping.
Season four, which has now wrapped up broadcast, was an adaptation of the fourth novel the Drums of Autumn and saw Jamie Fraser (played by Sam Heughan) and his wife Claire (Caitriona Balfe) building a life for themselves in the New World. For those familiar with the novels, season four had some shocking moment that will left one character devastated. First look photos were also previously released for season four which teased what fans could expect. Season five is likely to be going into production soon, now that the fourth run has concluded.
