After the last episode of season 5 fans are eagerly waiting for the announcement of Outlander season 6. The TV series, based on the book by the famous writer Diana Gabaldon, only increases its fan base every season. Starz has announced the final episode and the release date for Outlander season 6 on January 22, 2021

Melodrama with fantasy elements managed to generate no less interest than the book of the same name. The project has received many positive reviews, so Ronald D. Moore has no doubts about the need for new episodes.

In 2013, the TV channel signed all the necessary papers for the film adaptation of the work, and the writer herself got the opportunity to be a consultant on the project. The film studio has seriously approached the film adaptation. 

In order for the actors to get used to their roles as much as possible, it was decided to invite specialists in the Gaelic language. In order for the images to correspond to the reality of a bygone era, fashion designers had to carefully study history.

Outlander Season 6 is currently being filmed for a 2022 release date.

Story line

Claire Randall lives in the middle of the 20th century. When the war begins, the spouse goes to the front, and the young wife becomes a military nurse. During the next bombing, it is impossible to protect the hospital. Many people die, and Claire mysteriously travels through time.

A woman literally in a second turns out to be in 1973. The sequel to the Outlander series will tell you that the new world, ruled by harsh laws, does not show favor to the heroine. At this time, the fair sex was not appreciated if the girl was not born into a wealthy family. Claire feels like a stranger and dreams of returning home.

By chance Miss Randall meets the knight Jamie. Fearing not to return home, the heroine gives the go-ahead for a wedding with a handsome man and suddenly falls in love with him. How the romantic story will end and whether a stranger can find herself in an unfamiliar country, the release of the sixth season will tell.

Interesting Facts:

  • for filming, the creators chose cities where medieval buildings have been preserved. These were mainly the cities of England, Scotland and the Czech Republic;
  • the first information about the willingness to bring the characters from the book “Outlander” appeared in 2012. Five years later, we are honored to announce the release date for Outlander Season 6 in December 2020;

  • At the end of 2017, representatives of Starz TV reported that Outlander had been extended for a 6th season;

  • the average length of one episode is 64 minutes;
  • Outlander won the Saturn Award for Best Series and Best Television Actress;

The picture was highly praised on popular film critic websites, so it is not surprising that interest in it increases with the advent of new episodes. The news that Outlander will receive a release date for Season 6 has been well received by fans, as over the years there has been a certainty of meeting their favorite characters.

Outlander Season 6 Release Date

Outlander Season 6, announced back in 2018, has been pushed back to 2022. There is no exact release date yet, since the creators of the series did not adhere to specific schedules before and released episodes somewhat chaotically.

The Outlander series is based on a series of books of the same name and so far, all seasons have retold the events of the corresponding part of the book. In the fifth season, viewers could see the discrepancy between the plot of the book and the film adaptation, and in the sixth season, the director plans to widen the gap. However, it is known for certain that Claire will again face the Brown family. In previous episodes, she was abused by this family, which did not like that a woman was such a strong and influential person in the patriarchal world. The girl and her lover Jamie managed to kill the head of the clan and escape, but the brother of the deceased promised to take revenge.

In addition, according to rumors coming from people close to the studio, the audience will once again be transported to the lands of Scotland. But who will end up in their homeland – Claire or her daughter Brianna – is unknown. The creators have repeatedly talked about their plans to bring Brianna into key characters and, perhaps, starting from the sixth season, she will become an independent character with her own storyline, which will develop in parallel with the main one.
