We finally know when Droughtlander will end!
That’s right, we got a date: February 16th, 2020. That’s when we can expect to see the Frasers again.
We got a date for more than that, though, as Starz also announced the official Outlander panel presentation at New York Comic Con 2019 will take place on Saturday, October 5, 2019 at 5:30pm ET in The Hulu Theatre at Madison Square Garden. Caitriona Balfe (Claire Fraser) and Sam Heughan (Jamie) are confirmed to attend, as well as Duncan LaCroix (Murtagh), Maria Doyle Kennedy (Jocasta) and David Berry (Lord John Grey). Diana Gabaldon, author of the bestselling Outlander book series, will also attend.
Here’s what the press release says about season 5:
Season Five of “Outlander” finds the Frasers fighting for their family and the home they have forged on Fraser’s Ridge. Jamie must find a way to defend all that he has created in America, and to protect those who look to him for leadership and protection – while hiding his personal relationship with Murtagh Fitzgibbons, the man whom Governor William Tryon has ordered him to hunt down and kill. With her family together at last, Claire Fraser must use her modern medical knowledge and foresight to prevent them from being ripped apart once again. However, while focusing on protecting others, she risks losing sight of what it means to protect herself. Meanwhile, Brianna Fraser and Roger MacKenzie have been reunited, but the spectre of Stephen Bonnet still haunts them. Roger strives to find his place – as well as Jamie’s respect – in this new and dangerous time. The Frasers must come together, navigating the many perils that they foresee – and those they can’t.
Season Five of “Outlander” is currently in production in Scotland. The fifth season will play out over 12 episodes and is based on material from Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling Outlander series.
