‘Outlander’ Season 5: See the First MacKenzie Family Photo

Outlander fans are on the edge of their seats in anticipation for the upcoming season. Season 5 can’t get here fast enough. Droughtlander has at least been kind to fans in the form of teases of what’s soon to come. A major part of the family is Brianna (Sophie Skelton) and Roger (Richard Rankin). The end of season 4 had them finally reuniting after being so long apart. Fans can’t wait to see the pair start their lives together.

The first MacKenzie family photo

The first photo of the MacKenzie family, Brianna and Roger with their son, has finally been released on the Outlander official social media accounts. Brianna can be seen in a blue dress carrying a basket, presumably taking care of some chores. She stops to smile at Roger, who is seen holding a guitar and sitting down in front of their child, Jeremiah. They appear to be standing outside of Brianna’s parent’s house enjoying their family time together.

“@sophie.skelton and @rikrankin are going to blow you away in #Outlander Season 5. #STARZ,” the caption reads. Fans are understandably excited about this new detail from season 5.

It’s comforting to see the pair together at long last after their trials they each endured alone. In season 4, Brianna goes back to warn her mother of her impending fate. She learns that a fire breaks out in their home and kills either one or both of her parents. Roger chases her through to the past and finally reaches her.

Unfortunately, as is common in Outlander, happiness never truly seems to last. After their handfast ceremony in which they married rather informally, they are separated. Brianna ends up suffering a terrible fate at the hands of Stephen Bonnet (Ed Speelers) in which he brutally rapes her.

Eventually Brianna is able to make it to her parents, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) Fraser. When Roger attempts to find Brianna again, Jamie, thinking he is dealing with his daughter’s rapist, is furious. Roger is beaten up and sold to the Mohawk tribe. Once they learn of the fatal error, Jamie, Claire, and Young Ian (John Bell) travel to retrieve Roger and allow him to return to Brianna.

Eventually, at the end of season 4, the pair are united at long last. If the new photo is anything to go on, it appears the couple is settling into their new home well. Fans can’t wait to see how the fifth season turns out for Brianna and Roger’s little family.

Will Brianna and Roger be officially married?

According to the fifth book in Diana Gabaldon’s widely popular series, which is what the fifth season is based on, Brianna and Roger will officially get married in the new season. The book, The Fiery Cross, finally sees the two move from the handfast ceremony to actual man and wife. It will be nice to see their family prosper, at least for a time until the start of the American Revolutionary War.

The premiere of the highly anticipated fifth season of Outlander will be back next year on February 16, 2020. Hopefully, the new season will bring happiness to the MacKenzies. If the new photo is anything to go on, then it looks like they will experience just that. Outlander will be back in just a few short months.
