Season 6 of Outlander is the upcoming one in the series. This show of Netflix is fresh on our minds as the fifth season has been wrapped up just yet. It was a very eventful and emotional finale. We are considering it to be renewed as on May 9, 2018, Starz had confirmed that it has a long future. (check: Fuller House Season 5.)
Like you, we are also waiting eagerly for the new episodes to come out. Whatever the case may be, we now know that the series will be back soon for more challenges, adversaries, and adventure. It will continue to delve into American history. Also, it will feature the Frasers’ story as they try to settle in the New World.
Is Outlander seasons available on Amazon Prime?
Oh, yes! Though Outlander is a Starz show, you can watch it online on Amazon Prime Video if you have one of those accounts. Don’t worry if you can’t watch it on Starz. You can enjoy the show on Amazon Prime too to feed your appetite for the popular TV series. If you don’t have its account, you can always sign up anytime.
How many episodes will there be in Outlander season 6?
The upcoming installment of the popular Netflix series will consist of a total of 12 episodes. The fifth one also had the same number of episodes. However, it is one less than what the fourth installment had. However, that’s no big of a deal. Is it? Nah, we don’t think it is. The content should matter instead of the numbers. Isn’t it?
Who will be in the Outlander season 6? Cast & Characters
We are expecting that no major cast member will leave the show anytime soon. So, it means that the majority of the cast returns to reprise their respective roles. They are as follows:
- Caitriona Balfe as Claire Randall Fraser
- Sam Heughan as Jamie Fraser
- Richard Rankin as Roger Wakefield
- Sophie Skelton as Brianna Randall
Still, there are speculations of a potential spin-off making rounds on the internet. They say that fan-favorite Lord John Grey will star in it. It’s because he has appeared in the film/series adaptation of his own series of books. Actor David Berry also said that he will really be interested in something similar.
In a pre-revolutionary War battle, one character named Murtagh Fraser was killed. So, there is one cast member who definitely will not return is Ducan Lacroix. The actor said that he didn’t know about it earlier. However, he came to know about it just before the start of the shoot for the fifth season. He was asked if he could return. To answer it, he first laughed and said that he has no idea about that.
When will Outlander season 6 release? Premiere date:
The last (fifth) installment aired in February 2020. So, we can expect the next one in the series to premiere in early 2021 at the earliest. However, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we should expect a delay. Therefore, we will have to wait for a while now. Exact dates are not known yet.
The script has already been completed. And, they are ready for the first episodes. The COVID-19 crisis has affected all tv and movie productions. So, we can’t expect it to return soon as this year has been a total mess and a usual one.
What will happen in Outlander season 6? Plot/Storyline
The sixth book of Diana Gabaldon will be adapted into the next installment of Outlander. The book is titled A Breath of Snow and Ashes. But, we shouldn’t expect the next episodes will be strictly based on the source material. Because we have already seen that in the last batch of episodes.
Executive producer Ronald Moore said that they like to approach it fresh every year. They had discussed splitting the books and combining them. According to him, they like to do writing work without any stress. So, they will pick and choose whatever material they think would be the best and comfortable that year.
To get an idea of where the things would be in the future, we will have to seriously consider the season five finale. There are a lot of questions to be answered.
Will Marsali experience any guilt from that poison injection?
Will Brianna be able to meet her half-brother, William, about who she got to know at the end? Will Buck Mackenzie cause trouble? Mackenzie is the ascendant to Roger and the son of Dougal & Geillis Duncan. Claire has suffered a lot in the last chapter. There will be lasting effects as she will have to do deal with all the bad stuff that happened to her.
All of this stuff will be explored in the next installment. But, what do you think of its future beyond season 6? Let’s assume everything goes well with it, then future renewals will be easy too. As per Deadline, the president and CEO of Starz, Jeffrey Hirsch is interested in working for a season 7.
Hirsch said that they will continue to serve episodes as long as the fans like them. They are currently in business talks with their partners at Sony. Thus, we can safely assume that the show is not going anywhere anytime soon.
Is there any Outlander season 6 trailer?
Unfortunately, NO! It has not been released yet. The fans of Outlander will have to wait for more time. But, you can’t expect to watch promo footage until early 2021. Until then, you can always watch season 5 on Starz in the US and on Amazon Prime in the UK.
