We’re back with another edition of Outlander notes, and this weekend we’ve got a couple different highlights — one pertains to the series in some form, whereas the other revolves around the cast. We like to think that both are fun in their own way.

First and foremost, let’s talk some behind-the-scenes work! If you are looking to take part in a traineeship on the show in some shape or form, there’s a new application that you can check out over at the link here. The deadlines for applications are coming up soon, so if you’re eligible to work in the UK and are interested in production, you better strike while the iron is hot! There are also some other interesting dates in here that should give you somewhat of a sense as to the season 5 filming window — work on many of these gigs is running from March until November, and that may be a good approximation of when production is taking place. One of the show’s cast members said last year that filming would start in February, but that was long ago and it may have been an approximation. Within the next month/month and a half, it does feel fairly clear that the cast and crew will start descending on Scotland once more.
We know that the Droughtlander is long, but at least we’ve got a lot of stuff to start looking forward to soon!
Now, some Sam Heughan – Caitriona Balfe fun
This is totally random and silly, but it brings a smile to our face. Sam is on a brief break from work after filming SAS: Red Notice, and he posted a message recently on his Instagram of a hiking trip gone awry. (For the record, it does feel like this is a great story that we’ll hear more about on a late-night talk show someday.)

This was just before I took an “alternate” route down…. Then got trapped in a forest of cacti and eventually arrived on an American Airforce base. I couldn’t leave as I had no ID and shouldn’t be there. Thankfully called an Uber driver who was ex military (Cheers Brent!) and he got me out!!! Hiking is good for you. When you have a military driver…. (And let’s not talk about the sunburn)😎
Also, take a look at Caitriona Balfe’s response to his post on Twitter — it’s hilarious, much in the way that many interactions between the two are. This is why Outlander is such a fantastic set — the leads often set the tone and here, they are doing that with positive energy and fun. They also know how to get down to serious work when it is required.
As always, we welcome your thoughts on this latest Outlander notes now in the comments! (Photo: Starz.)
