As Outlander season five ended with a strange and sad twist, the fans are eagerly waiting for the next season! All eyes were affixed to Claire’s healing process, and what would possibly happen next. Finally, it’s great news for Outlanders fans that season six is officially on the air. Yay!
The Outlander Series is a historical drama show based on Diana Gabaldon’s novel. The producer of this show is Ronald D Moore, who started it on August 9, 2014 and now it has completed it’s fifth successful seasons. This show has made a different identity in the whole world and the noose of this show is all around!
Outlander Season 6: Release Date
On November 22 during a press meeting at the launch of the ninth book of the ‘Go Tell the Bees That I Gone’ series, Outlander’s author Diana Gabaldon announced the release date of Outlander season 6.
The first episode of the Outlander season will be streamed on March 6, 2022. Gabaldon used to always say in his previous conferences and press releases that there would be ten books featuring Fraser’s family, which is a direct indication that at least 10 seasons are going to be premiered in this series.
Oh, and another thing that Gabaldon quotes, “it all depends on Claire and Jamie. If they don’t want to die, the show can probably go on beyond ten seasons”.
Whom will we see in Outlander 6: Cast?
As far as the cast of Outlander Season 6 is concerned, we will definitely see the four most prominent characters of this story in the upcoming season. Including Caitriona Balfe as Claire Randall Fraser, Sam Heughan as Jamie Fraser, Richard Rankin as Roger Wakefield and Sophie Skelton as Brianna Randall. However, if we talk about Duncan Lacroix i.e. Jamie’s father-in-law, he will not be seen in this season as he, unfortunately, passed away during the last season (Season 5).
In the upcoming season, you will find some new faces who have been recently signed by the makers. In which you will see Mark Lewis playing the role of Tom Christie, Jessica Reynolds as Malva Christie and Alexander Vlahos as Allan Christie. According to some sources and recent Instagram posts, it has also been confirmed that these new faces are working for Outlander Season 6.
Tom Christie will be seen as the leader of the group of Protestant Settlers. Perhaps, Malva Christie and Allan Christie would be Tom Christie’s children. And as much as it has been observed from Gabaldon’s interviews, Malwa will emerge as a key role in this story. You may find some other minor character changes as well, which have not been revealed yet.
What will happen next in Season 6: Plot?
After watching season five, we have definitely gotten a little idea as to what may happen in season 6, but some questions have also been raised.
What will happen to Claire? Will Marsali feel guilty for that poison injection? And now that Brianna has come to know that she has a brother, named William, will she be able to meet him? And oh so many more secrets that could not be uncovered in Season 5.
The first thing we can see at the beginning is how Claire deals with her trauma. Like we saw in the last season how Claire was sexually assaulted and beaten up by a group of men and how Jamie (Claire’s husband) saved her. At the end of the season, we see how deeply that incident has left an impact on her mind. In the last scene, she tells her husband how safe she feels, and the season ends.
In season 6, the secrets of time travel will also be revealed. Jamie Fraser’s wife i.e Claire will reveal that she was not the only time traveller. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Balfe revealed that in season 6, the Christie family will be arriving at Fraser’s Ridge. Consequently, we will find out how the arrival of Christie’s will shake everything up – and Malwa Christie’s will play an important role in it!
In this season, we will also get to see the love story of Marsley (Lauren Lyle) & Fergus (Cesar Domboy) and how they give birth to a child (who turns out to be a victim of dwarfism) as a symbol of their love.
The most important thing, however, will be how Jamie and Claire face the American Revolt. Once again, Jamie will discover himself slashed between his loyalty to the British Crown and his Family’s Freedom. Stay tuned for more updates!
