Starz released the trailers for Season 5 of “Outlander” and Season 2 of docuseries “Wrong Man,” as well as a teaser for its upcoming scripted drama series “Hightown.”
“Outlander,” which returns Feb. 16 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, is based on material from Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling series of the same name.
Here is the official description for Season 5:
“Season Five of “Outlander” finds the Frasers fighting for their family and the home they have forged on Fraser’s Ridge. Jamie must find a way to defend all that he has created in America, and to protect those who look to him for leadership and protection – while hiding his personal relationship with Murtagh Fitzgibbons, the man whom Governor William Tryon has ordered him to hunt down and kill. With her family together at last, Claire Fraser must use her modern medical knowledge and foresight to prevent them from being ripped apart once again. However, while focusing on protecting others, she risks losing sight of what it means to protect herself. Meanwhile, Brianna Fraser and Roger MacKenzie have been reunited, but the spectre of Stephen Bonnet still haunts them. Roger strives to find his place – as well as Jamie’s respect – in this new and dangerous time. The Frasers must come together, navigating the many perils that they foresee – and those they can’t.”

“The Wrong Man” returns for its second season on Feb. 9 at 9:45 p.m. ET/PT.
From filmmaker Joe Berlinger (“Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes”), the series “examines the cases of three different inmates who are serving life sentences on murder convictions but who claim innocence,” according to Starz. “Renowned civil rights attorney Ron Kuby, former prosecutor Sue-Ann Robinson, retired NCIS investigator Joe Kennedy, and Ira Todd of Detroit’s elite Homicide Task Force return to take viewers on riveting real-time investigations to uncover new evidence, track down key witnesses, consult forensic experts and interrogate the incarcerated.”

“Hightown” set to premiere this spring, is set in Cape Cod, Mass., and “follows one woman’s journey to sobriety, overshadowed by an unfolding murder investigation.”
According to Starz, Jackie Quiñones (Monica Raymund, “The Good Wife”), plays a hard-partying National Marine Fisheries Service agent, and has her free-wheeling life thrown into disarray when she discovers a body on the beach – another casualty of Cape Cod’s opioid epidemic. To deal with the trauma, Jackie takes the first steps toward sobriety– until she becomes convinced it’s up to her to solve the murder. Now at odds with sergeant Ray Abruzzo (James Badge Dale, “Only The Brave”), an abrasive but effective member of the Cape Cod Interagency Narcotics Unit, Jackie starts to spiral. And she’s not alone – Ray himself crosses more lines than he can count in the name of the investigation. The two of them, along with everyone else connected to the murder, all circle each other, and as their lives crash together, we’re reminded just how complicated – and deadly – our addictions can be.
Other stars include Riley Voelkel (“Roswell, New Mexico”) Shane Harper (“Code Black,” “Happyland”), Amaury Nolasco (“Prison Break,” “Deception” ) and Atkins Estimond (“The Resident,” “Lodge 49”).
