When will ‘Outlander’ season 5 return?
In other Outlander news, season 5 is right around the corner. The highly-anticipated season premiere will return next year on February 16, 2020, just two days after Valentine’s Day. The timing couldn’t be any more perfect, considering the on-air chemistry between Heughan and Balfe. Fans have been reeling during this long Droughtlander. Luckily, there are only a few more months left to wait and the light is at the other end of the tunnel.
What will season 5 of ‘Outlander’ be about?
The wildly popular books by author Diana Gabaldon have always been the basis of the Outlander world. The next book in the series, The Fiery Cross, is what the next season will be based on. The fifth installment shows Brianna and Roger (Richard Rankin) finally getting married in an actual ceremony. Fans will remember the pair are already married through the handfast ceremony in season 4. But they will officially tie the knot in the next season and make it legitimate.
Coming as no surprise to fans, Stephen Bonnet (Ed Speleers) will also be back to cause more turmoil for the Fraser clan. He survives the prison explosion and comes to Fraser’s Ridge searching for Brianna and her child. The showdown is going to be epic, so get ready for some amazing Outlander scenes that will leave you breathless.
The next season of Outlander will be intense if the next book is anything to go on, and it certainly is. In a few short months, Outlander fans will be back in Fraser’s Ridge with their favorite family once again.
