Outlander Season 5 Production Heats Up, Actors and Set Designers Tease

Duncan season 5 start

This morning we awoke to Duncan Lacroix staring over his own shoulder. The offices are filling up with not only production crew, but the actors are coming in to get ready for read throughs and fittings.

Production: Jon Gary Steele has been busy on his Instagram account helping everyone survive along with Matt Roberts. Jon has been featuring BTS of builds both on site and in the studios at Wardpark Film and Television studios. We are left guessing which scene, which episode, and the identity of some items not quite finished. Jon has been showing some great pre build bones on the set of the cabins, and one this week that may be S5’s Big House. Fans of the Outlander Books are waiting for representation of their favorite parts of Fraser’s Ridge. We were hoping for a cabin build for Murtagh, but with the cliff hanger in Season 4, were’s hoping that Jamie and Claire may still build it in the hope someday he can live out his days there. Perhaps a very deep basement to hide in with access to the outside with escape tunnels. What, Jon can do that.

Looking at the set builds both at the studios with Caitriona Balfe’s live action B&W set building tour was a blast this week, she even caught a dodging Jon Gary Steele, not one for the limelight, but who is kind to share the magnificent work his crew does daily.

For those of you lucky enough to start chasing the film crews as they start up in the next few months, here are the locales for River Run and the Indian Village, Frasers Ridge.

River Run was filmed here last year

Abercairny Estates, Crieff
