We’re all deep into Draughtlander at this point. Each day we fans scan through our Twitter and Instagram feeds to catch a Tweet or a pic from one of stars or writers from our beloved Outlander.

We know that Outlander season 5 is now underway with the first table read complete and filming has begun. There is however no word when season 5 will air on Starz.

Caitriona posted the following to her Instagram. While Sam posted to his IGStories a series of pictures and mini videos.

Apparently Steve Cree who plays Ian Murray was late to the table read so Sam stepped in to read his part at least that’s what I saw on Twitter. Come to think of it 🤔 Ian (the elder) isn’t even in the The Fiery Cross that I can remember. I know for sure he’s not in the beginning of the book because it’s all the droning on at the Gathering. Anyway, I digress and here is Sam’s pic.

Sam and Caitriona have taken on producer roles for season 5 and fans are hoping that this will help get the heart and soul of Outlander, Jamie and Claire, back on track as some of that has been lost over the last few seasons.

Seems some of the writers want to focus on minor characters and not give the attention to the details needed for the two that this story is really about. Need I have to mention episode 4:07 Down the Rabbit’s Hole which was a LegHair fest.

We also know who wrote episode 1 of season 5 – Matthew Roberts.
