Will we see Laoghaire again in Outlander Season 5? This was a question brought up at Sasnak City and Nell Hudson gave us an answer.
Nell Hudson was one of the last-minute additions to Sasnak City 2019 in October, and what an exciting addition she was. The Outlander actress has certainly made a name for herself among fans as one of the most hated characters on the series, Laoghaire MacKenzie.
After a surprise appearance in Season 2, fans realized that they should be ready for anything. Then she showed up in Season 4 as a way to bridge Brianna’s journey from the stones to her parents. While this moment certainly received mixed opinions, it’s always fun to see Hudson on the screen and it was fun to see the two sides to the character.

But will Hudson’s Laoghaire return? Will we see her in Outlander Season 5?
We know that she doesn’t appear in “The Fiery Cross,” but that doesn’t mean we won’t see her again, right? After all, the writers do enjoy putting their own twist to things. While you may not like them, it’s understandable why, as creatives, they would want to make their own mark while creating a 1000-page book fit into 12 episodes of a TV series that tells a full story for book-first and show-first/show-only fans.
So, will this be a creative twist? For those who want a season without Laoghaire, this is the one you’ll enjoy. Hudson shared at Sasnak City that she isn’t involved in the fifth season, and she wasn’t needed for the final two episodes, which are in the final days of being filmed.
However, that doesn’t mean it’s the last we’ve seen of her. Laoghaire does show up again in Book 6, “A Breath of Snow and Ashes.” Hudson is certainly open to returning to the series as long as schedules work out. After all, the actress does have other projects. We’ve seen what that can mean for the likes of Laura Donnelly and Steven Cree.
