Season 5 of Outlander ends with Jamie (Sam Heughan), Claire (Caitriona Balfe), along with their whole clan currently at peace in Fraser’s Ridge, however, with what is coming in season, it won’t be for long. Here is what fans can expect from the time dram once it returns with new episodes.
The Starz romance series continues to undergo Diana Gabaldon’s novel series that the series is based on. The narrative focuses on the adventures of Claire, a former World War II nurse that transported back through the rocks of Craigh na Dun in time. She matches with Jamie, with Scottish Highlander, and they fall madly in love. The fans have gone to remain. In Outlander season 5, their journey brought them to the USA from Europe just before the Revolutionary War. With their growing clan with them including daughter Brianna (Sophie Skelton) along with her own family with her, both Jamie and Claire are fighting harder than ever for a long time together. Here is what to expect from the Outlander season.
Outlander Season 6 Release Date
Starz awarded Outlander a two-season renewal, locking in its fifth and sixth outings. This ensures that Jamie and Claire’s experiences will last at least until season 6. Filming is scheduled to start later this year, although there’s no specific schedule yet, leading to an unknown release date for Outlander season 6. It’s worth noting that Outlander does not have a normal premiere window, unlike system displays. This makes it more challenging to estimate when the show will soon be back with brand new episodes.
Looking at Outlander’s previous year premieres, however, viewers could be looking at a 2021 summer season 6 introduction. Seasons are typically taken by the show based on the scheduling for Starz. For instance, fans had to wait over 12 weeks for Outlander season 5, and Heughan previously revealed that the break maybe around the same this time. One more factor to consider is the continuing coronavirus pandemic that has delayed films and TV shows, also, to shut down production indefinitely. Based on the way the situation shakes out in the coming months, the public might be looking at a longer “Droughtlander.”
Outlander Season 6 Story Details
Outlander has largely stuck with Gabaldon’s books. Every Outlander season is based on a publication, with season 5 exploration narrative inspiration from The Fiery Cross along with some story elements in the sixth publication, A Breath of Snow and Ashes, which is going to be the main source for the upcoming season. Ironically, Outlander season 5 had a few significant deviations from its print counterpart making calling season 6 a lot more challenging, but the series has left lovers some clues as to what might be next for the Frasers.
Season 5 showcased Claire being abused by Lionel Brown (Ned Dennehy) and his folks only due to her headstrong personality, not to mention unusual approach in matters. Jamie ultimately saved her, resulting in the death of Lionel. If fans are expecting the Frasers to put this behind them, that’s not likely to be the situation. Balfe revealed that Outlander year 6 will explore how Claire moves from her traumatic experience. Apart from that, Richard Brown (Chris Larkin) vowed on retribution so that he’s returning to seek revenge for the death of his brother.
Other important plot traces from A Breath of Snow and Ashes that might be interpreted on the small screen include Brianna and Roger (Richard Rankin) finally time-traveling following this season’s bait and switch. Since the publication saw the return of Jamie and Claire in Scotland, this could also be the case from the Outlander TV show. This is as the couple attempts to flee the Revolutionary War in 16, makes sense. Finally, some answers concerning the group’s obituary that forced Brianna to seek them may be shown as well.
