We’re looking down the barrel of this longest Droughtlander however, the beloved cast and crew of Outlander are intent on keeping us apprised of the latest from the set (and, er, Zoom) in the meantime.
Beneath, everything we know about seaso 6 of those hit Starz series–in the latest from place to what to expect for Claire (Caitriona Balfe), Jamie (Sam Heughan), Brianna (Sophie Skelton), and Roger (Richard Rankin) as soon as the show returns.
Outlander Season 6: Release Date & Cast
Outlander season 5 was so hard on everybody’s favorite couple Jamie and Claire. While Jamie was forced to kill his own godfather Murtagh by Governor Tryon, Claire had been abducted and raped by Lionel Brown and his men.
Additionally, it keeps on getting scarier as Roger was confronted with a near-death experience and lost his voice in the procedure, which left him devastated and traumatized. What’s more, Murtagh’s character eventually came to an end as he expired while saving Jamie’s life.
However, the only great thing that happened in the entire season is that Marsali injected Lionel Brown using a deadly herb, which killed the wicked guy. Additionally, Claire is abandoned with PTSD due to her traumatic experience, but Jamie was with her. It is theorized that season 6 will deal with the aftermath of all the horrible events which took place in season 5.
What Does Will Happen In Outlander Season 6?
Outlander Season 6 will be based on Gabaldon’s sixth book A Breath of Snow and Ashes. A portion of the story from A Breath of Snow and Ashes was coated in Season 5 of Outlander, but it’s a large book, so there is a lot more story to come.
As it opens, the Frasers are overcoming the traumas from the last season: Claire’s kidnap and sexual assault, Brianna’s abduction from Stephen Bonnet, Roger’s being hung and almost perishing, Jamie’s brush with death after being bitten by a poisonous snake along with the passing of his godfather Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix) in the Battle of Alamance.
“When we abandoned Season 5, the entire family is fractured,” Heughan said throughout the Outlander End of Summer series. “They’re together but Claire still has some healing to do.”
And Balfe agreed, “One of the things I am looking forward to seeing is the way she deals with all of that and the consequences of it. How the household as a complete unit heals together or help her to heal. I think that is going to be a really lovely part of the story.”
