Outlander Season 6 Has Been Renewed!
As mentioned, Outlander was greenlit by Starz for a sixth season. It will premiere on Sunday, March 6, 2022, on STARZ at 9 pm ET in the U.S. and day and date in the UK for the first time on STARZPLAY!
Outlander spans the genres of romance, science-fiction, history, and adventure in one epic tale. It follows the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945, who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743 Scotland. When forced to marry Jamie Fraser, a chivalrous young Scottish warrior, Claire’s heart is torn between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
What To Expect On Outlander Season 6
Here’s what will happen in the sixth season of Outlander…
The series is back with an extended episode that will pick up shortly after the traumatic events of last season. When we last saw Claire, she had just escaped a violent encounter with Lionel Brown and was returning to Fraser’s Ridge. Claire and Jamie are faced with a difficult decision as to the threat of the Revolutionary War looming over them.
The sixth season of “Outlander” sees a continuation of Claire and Jamie’s fight to protect those they love, as they navigate the trials and tribulations of life in colonial America. Establishing a home in the New World is by no means an easy task, particularly in the wild backcountry of North Carolina – and perhaps most significantly – during a period of dramatic political upheaval.
The Frasers strive to maintain peace and flourish within a society which – as Claire knows all too well – is unwittingly marching towards Revolution. Against this backdrop, which heralds the birth of the new American nation, Claire and Jamie have built a home together at Fraser’s Ridge.
They must now defend this home – established on land granted to them by the Crown – not only from external forces but also from the increasing strife and conflict in the community within their care. For the Frasers and their immediate family, “home” is more than simply a site in which they live, it is the place where they are laying the foundations for the rest of their lives.
If Season 4 asked “What is home?” and Season 5 asked, “What are you willing to do to protect your home?” then Season 6 explores what happens when there is disharmony and division among the inhabitants of the home you’ve created… when you become an outsider or an ‘outlander,’ so to speak, marginalized and rejected in your own home.
Adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling books, Season Six is based on material from the sixth book in the Outlander series, A Breath of Snow and Ashes. STARZ also recently announced the pick-up of the seventh season of “Outlander.”
