A countdown to this announcement using a large hourglass was revealed on the carpet, effectively letting fans “travel through time” with the early release of the premiere episode at midnight on Valentine’s Day.

The wildly popular time travel romance will air its linear premiere on Sunday, February 16 at 8 PM ET /PT on STARZ, airing each episode week-to-week. You can watch the previously-released videos for Outlander Season Five by clicking here.

The fifth season will play out over 12 episodes and is based on material from Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling Outlander book series.

The Outlander Season 5 cast includes Caitriona Balfe (Claire Fraser), Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser), Sophie Skelton (Brianna Randall), Richard Rankin (Roger Wakefield), Maria Doyle Kennedy, (Jocasta), Duncan Lacroix (Murtagh), David Berry (Lord John Grey), César Domboy (Claudel “Fergus” Fraser), Lauren Lyle (Marsali MacKimmie Fraser), Colin McFarlane (Ulysses), and Caitlin O’Ryan (Lizzie Wemyss).

Season Five 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, 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.

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.

Outlander is produced by Tall Ship Productions, Left Bank Pictures and Story Mining & Supply Co., in association with Sony Pictures Television.

Starz has renewed the Outlander series through its sixth and forthcoming season.
