Heughan’s photos were taken on the first day of filming. The shots include a look at Heughan’s wardrobe for the upcoming run and some of the props in his dressing room, including a gun. The actor, who plays the part of Jamie Fraser on the show, uploaded the pictures as part of an Instagram story.
Season 5 of Outlander will continue to explore Jamie and Claire’s (Caitriona Balfe) journey as they set up new lives for themselves in the New World.
