NEW Interview With Matt Roberts from The Hollywood Reporter   1 comment

Here is a NEW Interview with Matt Roberts from The Hollywood Reporter

From THR:

Time travel helped bring an extended Fraser family together across a two-century divide when  the Starz historical fantasy series Outlander wrapped its fourth season more than a year ago. As their clan continues building a community in the back woods of early 1770s North Carolina, political unrest looms large in the colonies, setting up grave danger and ushering in the emotional turmoil that drives the drama’s upcoming fifth season (bowing Feb. 16).

More after the jump!

“Last season, the question was: Where is home, what is home? … Is it people? Is it a place? Is it the building that you’re in? This year, we know what home is — it’s family. It is this community. What lengths will you go to in order to keep that whole, to protect it? That’s the question we asked; that’s the question [Diana Gabaldon’s The Fiery Cross book] asks. So, we try to answer it throughout the season,” executive producer Matthew B. Roberts told The Hollywood Reporter of what the characters are grappling with across season five’s 12-episode run.

For family patriarch Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), that question takes root in the season four cliffhanger that saw the land-granted Scotsman receive orders from Governor Tryon (Tim Downie) to form a militia and hunt down and kill the leader of anti-corruption rebels the Regulators — Murtagh Fitzgibbons (Duncan Lacroix).

  1. Great interview – and a very insightful view of Season 5. Matt Roberts is right in that the beautiful bond between Jamie and Claire is the essence of Outlander. It will be interesting to hear the fan views of Jamie wearing the redcoat jacket. I would say Jamie is caught between a rock and a hard place.
