Fans are already rewatching seasons 1 through 3, and watching downloads of season 4 to get through the dreaded Droughtlander. For the last two weeks, main cast members confirmed they are returning to work at Wardpark Studios in Cumbernauld, outside of Glasgow. Sophie Skelton, Caitriona Balfe, and Duncan Lacroix have all had great Instagram moments. The following actors have been confirmed for the season:
Sam Heughan, Caitriona Balfe, Richard Rankin, Sophie Skelton, Cesar Domboy, John Bell, Duncan Lacroix, Ed Speleers who is off filming an indie film in the Glasgow Scotland area this week, and Lauren Lyle.
Still waiting on confirmation for newer characters from Season 4 returning for Season 5, however as they are integral to The Fiery Cross, the 5th book in Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander Series, they should be making an appearance. Maria Kennedy Doyle, Colin McFarlane, and Tim Downie as Gov. Tryon. We definitely expect to see Tryon again as the storyline will be driven by the War of the Regulators, a precursor war about over taxation that began the path to the American Revolution. The Governor is keen to stamp out the insurgency, and fully fund his new mansion.
The show averages 8 months of filming and 4 of production/editing on the back end. We are heading into a 2020 spring or summer timeframe for Season 5.
Casting has gone out for two sets of twins, presumably for Jemmy, Roger and Brianna’s child. One for a year old and one for toddler.
Stay tuned on the main Outlander IMDh page as season 5 information slowly makes its way forward.
