'Outlander' Season 5 Isn't Returning Until 2020 on Starz


Season 5 of Outlander is scheduled to premiere in early 2020, Starz announced.

With a cast led by Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan, the romantic fantasy-drama is based on Diana Gabaldon's best-selling series of novels.

The story follows the adventures of time-traveling, 20th century, British doctor Claire and her 18th century, Scottish Highlands warrior husband Jamie.

Season 4 — which debuted in November 2018 — saw the couple settling in North Carolina, shortly before the start of the American Revolution.
