Droughtlander is over…well, almost.
Season 5 of hit historical drama “Outlander” will return to the small screen on Sunday, February 16; while sitting down with ET Canada‘s Keshia Chante, co-stars and close friends Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan get candid about how they prepare for love scenes together.
“I think we started at a low point and it could only have gotten better,” Balfe admits, revealing that Heughan had chowed down on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich moments before one of their love scenes in season 1.
“At this point, it’s like, anything goes,” she hilariously adds.
Season 4 of the series wrapped way back in January 2019, and fans have since been eagerly awaiting new episodes. Both Balfe and Heughan reveal the real reason it took so long for the debut of the upcoming fifth season.
“It takes time to make a show that’s as big and expansive as ours is,” the 40-year-old actress explains.
“There’s a lot of factors you know, we’re on location a lot, we’re outdoors and there’s lots of moving parts, lots of horses, not so many Ferraris or Fords,” Heughan adds.
“Good things come to those who wait,” says Balfe.
The fifth season of “Outlander” will follow Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser as they gather people who made Fraser’s Ridge their home for a “grand wedding.”
However, Heughan wants fans to know that this season isn’t just about a big party.
“I’ll spill the tea, shall I? There is a wedding…there’s maybe even more than one wedding. Having said that, there is also this mounting pressure from the British and their lead-in to the Revolutionary War,” the actor reveals.
“So, there’s the good and the bad,” says the 39-year-old.
“You know I think our show gives the audience different things,” Balfe adds. “Not only is it a historical drama, it has the romance but it also has a lot of action.”
