Outlander season 5 and 6 have been confirmed by US network Starz following the show’s immense success across the world. Here’s what we know so far about Outlander series 5 including release date, cast, plot and more.
Release Date For Outlander Season 5
The next instalment of the series is going to hit the screen on February 16 2020. It will be available in the US and Amazon prime video. Starz gave the show a double renewal in 2018, which means season six is on the cards.
Previous seasons of Outlander have premiered at different times of the year including August, April and September.
Season three debuted in September 2017 and the fourth cycle premiered on November 4, 2018, so it seemed likely that the fifth outing will be released in autumn 2019.
More Coming Up Seasons For The Series
The news was announced back in May 2018 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.”
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 bloody happy.”
Before 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.”
