The first trailer for ‘Outlander’ Season 5 is here – watch!

Starz have released the first trailer for the new season of Outlander.

12 new episodes of the historical fantasy drama began filming in Scotland earlier this year, based on the fifth book in author Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander seriesThe Fiery Cross.

The exciting one-minute teaser is the first footage from the new season since Outlander stars Caitriona Balfe (Claire) and Sam Heughan (Jamie) gave fans a brief behind the scenes preview in May.

The new tagline reveals: “The Frasers will fight time, space, and history to protect their family.”

Following an unexpected delay, it was confirmed last month that the Droughtlander will finally end when Season 5 premieres in the US on Sunday 16th February 2020 on Starz.

Episodes are expected to debut in the UK the following day on Amazon Prime Video.

The fourth season of Outlander concluded in January, with another two seasons confirmed before it had even started.

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.”

Season 4 is available on DVD on Amazon.
