The first trailer for Outlander‘ Season 5 has arrived, which premieres in February 2020.

‘Outlander’ follows the story of Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe), who was a married combat nurse from 1945 that was mysteriously swept back in time to 1743 and immediately thrown into an unknown world where her life is threatened. Stuck in the past, she meets Jamie (Sam Heughan), a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, and a passionate affair is ignited that complicates Claire’s life as she has to reconcile her new life in the past with her knowledge of the future.

The 5th season of ‘Outlander’ sees a continuation of the Fraser family’s adventures, as they navigate the trials and tribulations of life in colonial America. Establishing a home in the New World is by no means an easy task – and protecting it proves even more difficult – particularly in the wild backcountry of North Carolina, during a period of dramatic socio-political upheaval.

As Claire knows all too well, friends, neighbours and countrymen are unwittingly marching towards Revolution, with members of the elite ruling classes struggling to stifle the alarming undercurrent of unrest triggered by the Regulator Movement. Against this backdrop, which soon heralds the birth of the new American nation, Claire and Jamie are forced to ask themselves just how far they are willing to go to protect their home, and praying there will be no reason to light the “fiery cross,” an ancient Scottish call to arms.

The show has already been renewed up to Season 6, but ‘Outlander‘ Season 5 premieres Sunday, February 16, 2020, on Starz in the US, and should premiere Monday, 17th February 2020, on Amazon Prime in the UK (although that has still to be officially confirmed).
