Outlander is an American period drama that has been with us since 2014, and we got to watch its last season, which was the 5th one on February 16, 2020, on Starz. The drama is an adaptation of the famous novel series by Diana Gabaldon of the same name that follows the journey of a World War 2 nurse named Claire Beauchamp who gets a second chance in life in terms of history, love, and loss by going back in time.
The series was developed by Ronald D. Moore with that this show holds a special place in everyone’s heart due to the phenomenal acting skills it contains, passionate characters, etc. If putting it together, we can call it a perfect exploration of Scottish, English, and American history and culture.
Release Date of Outlander Season 6!
So let us begin with the very first news that brought us to a conclusion about the drama’s release date as soon as possible. Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan are coming back for the upcoming season. Yes! It is absolutely true. Caitriona Balfe has spilled out a little bit about the twisted and dark narratives in the upcoming sixth season. Season six will have a total of eight episodes which will include a 90-minute premiere episode too.
Now, as we already know, how much popularity the show has got, and due to this reason, Starz has announced that the series will come up with its seventh season. The network announced in June 2021 that the seventh season would be kind of an extension for the sixth one because it will be short in length. In contrast, the seventh installment would be 16-episode long.
What is Season 6 Based on!
The sixth season will be based on the sixth book of Gabaldon’s that has the same name as the series, ‘A Breath of Snow and Ashes.’ It is assumed that it might have some elements from the seventh book, ‘An Echo in the Bone.’ Season six will be bringing us nearer to the Revolutionary War. With that, we will get to see Claire and Jamie coming in contact with a new group of settlers in and around Fraser’s Ridge.
The Cast of Outlander Season 6!
If all goes well, then we can expect the return of all four main characters, including Caitriona Balfe as Claire Randall Fraser, Richard Rankin as Roger Wakefield, Sophie Skelton as Brianna Randall, and Sam Heughan as Jamie Fraser. However, we will not be able to watch Duncan Lacroix come back to the show as Jamie’s godfather Murtagh as his character came to an in-season five itself.
But there is one more good news, as there are new faces that we will get to see in the upcoming season as Mark Lewis Jones, Alexander Vlahos, and Jessica Reynolds. The three will be playing the roles of Allan Christie, Malva Christie, and Tom Christie,
Outlander has already proved its worth by announcing the upcoming seasons, which are waiting for us and vice versa. Now, the only thing on our list is the trailer that might hit the screens any time soon.
