Outlander: Brave the New World

Outlander season five is now in production, Starz CEO Chris Albrecht commented on the series saying: “Fans can rest assured their beloved Claire and Jamie will be back facing new challenges, adversaries and adventures in seasons five and six as we delve into American history and continue the story of the Frasers as they settle in the New World.”

Outlander is based on the book series by Diana Gabaldon, who has written a total of eight novels so far in the saga of the star-crossed lovers and shows no signs of stopping.

The plot synopsis for the fifth season reads as follows: “Establishing a home in the New World is by no means an easy task – and protecting it proves even more difficult – particularly in the wild backcountry of North Carolina during a period of dramatic socio-political upheaval.

“As Claire knows all too well, friends, neighbours and countrymen are unwittingly marching towards Revolution, with members of the elite ruling classes struggling to stifle the alarming undercurrent of unrest triggered by the Regulator Movement.

“Against this backdrop, which soon heralds the birth of the new American nation, Claire and Jamie are forced to ask themselves just how far they are willing to go to protect their home and praying there will be no reason to light the fiery cross, an ancient Scottish call to arms.”

Cinesite VFX Supervisor Salvador Zalvidea is overseeing work on season 5, which releases in late 2019.
