Outlander is officially coming back for the 6th season. “Fans can rest assured their beloved Claire and Jamie will be back facing new challenges, adversaries and adventures in seasons five and six as we delve into American history and continue the story of the Frasers as they settle in the New World, “Starz president and CEO Chris Albrecht said in a statement.
When one fan asked, “have you read S6 scripts yet?” he responded, “We have started… Ep 1!!! So excited. But you’re going to love the rest of this season.”In a tweet, actor Sam Heughan of the shoe confirmed working on the new season while the last season was still airing.
This claim was also supported by his other co-star, Caitriona Balfe, “The writers are still at work” on future episodes.
Back in 2018, the show was announced to have double renewal after it’s the fifth season. However, not much has been revealed by the production house of the show and not much is known as even sixth season has come to a halt. Even the fifth season was pushed back from its original release date in 2019 to February 2020. So, this has put the fans in a situation where they are concerned that the new season might get further delay.
All the fans and the cast were happy that the show was getting and renewal and more so the work on it was started but everything went on a pause when the pandemic broke out. “We were supposed to start this week”, Heughan tweeted on May 3, when the fans asked him about the future of the show, “We have scheduled for Fall. Will just have to see…”
Heughan also went on to share that recently the production of the show is looking for ways to restart the shooting of the show,
“We were supposed to be shooting right now and obviously things are still slightly up in the air, but I think you know, I’m hopeful that we’re gonna be back before we know it,“
He said. “They’re putting plans in place.”
He said: “I’m not sure the exact dates at the moment, but I think it might be the same.” He also joked,“There will be a Droughtlander but they can go see my movies.”
However, if the things on as they are and follow the new schedule, the show might be released in the year 2021.
The main cast and the other stars are coming back to the show, which clearly means that the fans will be seeing Sam Heughan as the Scottish heartthrob Jamie Fraser again. Caitriona Balfe will also be back as his wife Claire Fraser as the pair no doubt deal with more peril in the upcoming outings.
As far as we know, we are all waiting for this Season to make a comeback at the earliest!
