Our wonderful Steven Cree stars in Season 5 of ‘Outlander’.

“Based on The Fiery Cross, the fifth novel in Diana Gabaldon’s series, the events of the corresponding fifth season will kick off fairly soon after the cliffhanger finale of season four, which saw Jamie (Sam Heughan) receive an order from Governor Tryon to find and kill his godfather, Murtagh.

“Season five, we essentially pick up where we left them,” Richard Rankin, who plays Roger, told RadioTimes.com in an exclusive interview. “There’s a little passage of time, but there’s a lot going on for all of the characters, and there’s a lot of new relationships to be forged.”

Network Starz’s synopsis for season five reads: “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.””

“Season 5 of Outlander will begin airing weekly on Sunday 16th February 2020 in the USA, meaning that the episode will arrive on Amazon Prime Video in the UK on Monday 17th February 2020.”
