The wait of the fans is finally over as the latest season of the Outlander has, at last, started to roll out on Starz. Sam Heughan, Caitriona Balfe, and the remaining cast and directors have raised the bar once again after a super hit season 5 in 2020. The buzz around is that it will be worth the wait.
Season 6 has been everything but simple to bring to the tv screen, as any Outlander fan knows. “We started in January and it’s going well,” Heughan, who plays Jamie, told the UK’s Daily Record in March 2021. “Certainly, the COVID protocols have been difficult, but the weather in Scotland has also been challenging. Although there has been a lot of snow, it appears as spring has arrived. There’s a ray of optimism on the horizon.” The sixth season is shorter, limiting it to only 8 episodes due to the pandemic. Nevertheless, the premiere episode is a 90-minute watch.
Fans Share Their Concerns About The Outlander
The fans were unhappy after the in-person tickets for the international premiere of Outlander sold out. At 5 p.m. (GMT) on 18th Feb a limited number of tickets were offered on a first-come, first-served basis for UK and US fans. Fans were dismayed, however, as the website collapsed only seconds after tickets went on sale. Others expressed their dissatisfaction with the URL’s inability to be recognized and vented their dissatisfaction on social media.
The series has finally premiered and all episodes will come out in one episode per week format. After waiting for a prolonged period of time, fans were hoping for all episodes to stream on Hulu. Although This is a Tv First Series, This format is now also followed by streaming OTT platforms as Amazon prime did for The Wheel Of Time.
Where Can You Watch The Show?
The historical drama series will air from the 6th March on the STARZ and the STRAZ app. Fresh episodes will air most probably only on Sunday nights. Previous seasons are currently available to watch on Amazon Prime, The STARZ app, and Hulu.
What To Expect From Season 6?
Season 5 was defined by hardships. One important character’s death, another’s a near-death experience, all building to an especially horrific ordeal for Claire (Caitriona Balfe). The season had 12 episodes to it and a lot of things happened in it. The new season will continue from where the series left in the last season, with the Frasers and the MacKenzies recovering from their losses and tragedies.
Based on the trailers and teasers we’ve seen so far, Season 6 will reveal the ramifications of what happened at the end of Season 5. The Frasers and MacKenzies are also moving ahead as they are rejoined by the Christie family on Fraser’s Ridge. According to rumors, Outlander Season 6 will be based on Diana Gabaldon’s sixth novel, A Breath of Snow and Ashes. Season 5 of Outlander covers a portion of the story from A Breath of Snow and Ashes, but the novel is huge, so there’s still much more to come.
John Bell, who plays Young Ian on the series, told Digital Spy about Season 6, “It is my favorite season so far, it is just so strong, the storylines throughout it—it feels like there is a change of pace, there is an ominous feeling that is happening this season. It is sort of like Harry Potter when it was getting darker, it is a little bit of that feeling that we can’t stop this inevitability.”
