If you also wonder what will happen in the sixth season, keep reading to uncover every detail of the upcoming installment.
Outlander is a historical drama series created by Ronald D. Moore for Starz. It is the remake of the novel series of the same name. The series made its debut on August 9, 2014. The channel has released five seasons of the show so far. All the seasons successfully managed to impress the fans as well as the critics. The fans love to see Jaime and Claire on screen, and they can’t wait to see them again.
Renewal & Production Details Of The Sixth Season!
Starz gave the green light to the sixth season long back, along with the fifth season. The fans will undoubtedly see the sixth season as it already renewed long ago. Chris Albrecht, CEO & President of Starz, confirmed the news. He said, “Fans can ensure their beloved Claire and Jamie will be back facing new challenges, foes, and adventures in seasons five and six as we probe into American history and advance the story of the Frasers as they settle in the New World.”
According to some reports, the production of Outlander Season 6 is scheduled to begin later this year. However, the production shutdown left the creators with no specific shooting schedule. The cast and crew will start the filming for the upcoming installment as soon as the government lifts the closure.
Outlander Season 6: Plot Details!
All the seasons of the series followed a particular book from the novel. Now the sixth season will follow the sixth book, ‘A Breath Of Snow and Ashes.’ However, the series will not entirely follow the source material, and there will be a lot of changes. Ronald Moore also discussed this in his interview. He said, “Every year we resemble it fresh. Should we keep it a novel a season? We’ve done that up till now. But we’ve talked about dividing books, and we’ve also talked about connecting them.”
Claire has gone through a lot in the fifth season. A group of men abused her physically and sexually before being rescued by Jaime. In the end moment, she told she couldn’t let those things tear her apart, and she felt safe in Jaime’s arms. However, the viewers will certainly see the aftermath of this brutality on her in the sixth season.
Here is a spoiler-free review of A Breath Of Snow and Ashes from Penguin. It reads, “The year is 1772, and on the night of the American Revolution, the long wick of revolution has already been lit. With chaos brewing, the governor calls upon Jamie Fraser to join the backcountry and save the colony for the Crown. But from his companion, Jaime knows that three years later, the noise listened around the world will be fired, and the result will be freedom—with those loyal to the King either dead or in exile. There is also the matter of a little clipping from The Wilmington Gazette, dated 1776, which reports Jamie’s death and his kindred. For once, he hopes, his time-traveling family may be wrong about the future.”
Outlander Season 6: Release Date
As we mentioned above, the sixth season doesn’t have any specific schedule for production. Therefore it is hard to predict the release date for it as well. And the irregular premiere window of the show makes it even harder. If the creators start filming in the upcoming months, then the fans can expect to see Outlander Season 6 in the second half of 2021.
