Filming recently wrapped on the fifth season of Outlander.
Following an unexpected delay, Outlander will return in the US on Sunday 16th February on Starz.
The new season will debut in the UK the following day on Amazon Prime Video.
Watch the trailer:
The official story synopsis for Season 5 reads: “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 sociopolitical 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.”
To mark the end of Season 5’s shoot, the cast and crew have been posting some lovely messages on Twitter.
Here’s a selection of our favourites:
A HUGE congratulations and thank you to all our cast and crew, writers and producers on finishing Season 5 !!! It’s been a long slog but everyone brought their A game day after day, week after week. Truly the greatest bunch of people. Now everyone GET SOME SLEEP #Outlanderwrap

With @Outlander_STARZ officially wrapping this week I thought it only fitting #throwbackthursday should be my last day filming on season 5. What a total privilege it is to get to work with such an incredible cast & crew. Not too shabby a view to end on. 🌈🌈 pic.twitter.com/hIvUvWKrUs
