Today at the Television Critics Association (TCA) Winter 2020 Press Tour, Starz released a new image and a long form trailer for its hit original series Outlander season 5. Premiering on Sunday, February 16 at 8:00pm ET/PT, the forthcoming 12-episode fifth season is based on material from Diana Gabaldon's international best-selling Outlander series.

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.

The Outlander television series has become a worldwide success with audiences, spanning the genres of history, science fiction, romance and adventure in one amazing tale. Executive produced by Ronald D. Moore, Maril Davis, Matthew B. Roberts, Toni Graphia, Andy Harries and Jim Kohlberg, is inspired by Gabaldon's Outlander series that has sold an estimated 30 million copies worldwide, with all the books having graced the New York Times best-sellers list. Starz renewed Outlander through season 6 and its forthcoming season.
