The saga is not over and the new Outlander with more and new episodes are definitely on the horizon, even if it seems like you will have to wait forever for them. If you’ve been watching Sam Heughan on Twitter, you’ll see a lot of updates on the new season of Outlander.
The actor has been raving about the scripts for Outlander season 6, given updates on when filming was supposed to begin, and most recently shared some glimpses of the costumes for the new season.
Is there an Outlander Season 6?
No need to worry, Outlander definitely has a yarn to keep weaving stories. The show was renewed about a thousand years ago, in 2018, according to Starz and like season 5, the sixth season will have twelve episodes.
Outlander Season 6 plot
Outlander faithfully follows Diana Gabaldon’s book series, so the sixth season will adapt the sixth book, A Breath of Snow and Ashes. As you might have expected from the events of Season 5, the story follows Claire and Jamie as they find themselves low-key on the wrong side of history during the American Revolution.
When is Outlander Season 6 released?
That’s the only thing really unknown about Outlander’s immediate future. They were supposed to shoot the new season last spring and unsurprisingly it was closed due to the pandemic.
Filming has yet to begin in mid-January 2021, and you may have to wait until 2022.
It’s not good news, but we know that Outlander is poised to shoot in a COVID-proof bubble with tons of testing and high production costs preventing further delay, so you can’t say they aren’t trying to bring us Season 6. as soon as possible.
