The cast of Outlander Season 5 was asked a battery of questions for an hour on the Hulu Stage at Madison Square Garden on October 5, 2019. Many were from fans and a few from presenter @GingerZee. It was live broadcast on SyFy Wire at 5:30pm EST.

Outlander New York Comic Con Season 5 Panel October 5, 2019 Video

Cast members Sam Heughan, Caitriona Balfe, Duncan Lacroix, David Berry, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Maril Davis (Producer), Ron D. Moore (Showrunner/Producer), and author Diana Gabaldon arrived at the panel. Sophie Skelton and Richard Rankin were absent this year and filming in Scotland for the show, however there was a question and answer video from them and a new Season 5 teaser.

What we know from the new Season 5 trailer and the three panels at Comic Con?

Claire wants Brianna, Roger, and Jemmy to go back. It is too dangerous in the 18th century, and she blames herself. They are there because of her choice to go back. There is the growing conflict with The Regulators, which is a small prelude of things to come with the larger scaled American Revolution. Roger wants to go back, and Brianna clearly states that their family is there. What she really fears is that Jem can’t go through the stones, and the safety of her parents.

In the spirit of letting the audience in on as much as they could, with the watchful and warning Maril Davis, Maria Doyle Kennedy admitted that Jocasta (er) would have “relationships”. Those of you who have read the books know where this may be going. Duncan Lacroix stated that the role of Murtagh has been ramping up each season, and in Season 5 he is doing some of his most challenging work.  Sam and Caitriona talked about the dangers of the New World, the upcoming battles, and family concerns.

Outlander Season 5 Premiere Date Announced February 2020

Screen Shot 2019-08-29 at 3.34.32 PM

Starz® just announced today that Season 5 of the Outlander series will premiere on February 16, 2020. The time travel series about a World War II combat nurse Claire, (Caitriona Balfe), her husband Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) continues its next season on Fraser’s Ridge in North Carolina. The Frasers will be dealing with new settlers on the ridge, Jamie seeking recruits for a mustering to hunt down the Regulators and namely his Godfather Murtagh Fitzgibbons Fraser (Duncan Lacroix). Brianna (Sophie Skelton) and Roger (Richard Rankin) will seek to get married and care for wee Jeremiah together, albeit with their history of contention, there will be some rough roads ahead. Not to mention the ghost of Stephen Bonnet. Will we see Young Ian (John Bell) come back from his time with the Mohawk? There will undoubtably be trouble with Governor Tryon, we know that Tim Downie has had quite a few BTS days on his Instagram feed of late. Marsali and Fergus may get that print shop together after all.

It doesn’t state in the synopsis whether they are taking material from The Fiery Cross, or taking elements of the storyline and possibly blending some of it in with the 6th installment, A Breath of Snow and Ashes. It has been stated by Executive Producer Ronald d. Moore that they may be taking half of a book and blending it with another. The books, if you have read them, are lengthly indeed and very detailed. Not everything translates well to screen. And since Dianna Gabaldon is finishing up another installment, which takes 4 to 5 years, it is quite possible that the series my overtake the book series, much lake Game of Thrones surpassed its authors writing and ended as a series this year. Could it be that Moore and Mathew B. Roberts see that the story line may play out or that Starz® may stop production after two more seasons?

Ah, and there is a big gathering at the beginning of the Fiery Cross, the fifth book in the Outlander series written by Diana Gabaldon with all kinds of drama and mischief.

Starz® released this synopsis for the upcoming season:

Season 5 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

Anyone know where they are filming this week? Fans of the show are desperately trying to find out.

If you are lucky enough to go to the con and get pictures with Duncan, please share to Twitter #duncanlacroix as many people will love you for it. Have a blast. He’s threatening to look very disheveled, so we can’t wait.
