When will Season 6 of ‘Outlander’ premiere?
In a COVID-free nation, viewers may have been able to see this month’s end of “Outlander”
With the pandemic delaying production by more than seven months, however, it is likely that it will not end until the fall of 2021.
According to Express, Starz has not revealed a Season 6 premiere date yet. However, we know that it normally takes about ten months to film a typical season.
Usually, for a new Outlander season, the network releases a teaser about four months before it airs. Fans could see a preview this summer and new episodes in the fall of 2021, if the history is any indicator.
No specifics about the season 6 plot have been announced yet. The book series by Diana Gabaldon, however, is expected to follow.
This suggests that book 6, A Breath of Snow and Ashes, will be based loosely on the new episodes.
How the time-traveling Starz drama will follow the books’ development is not obvious.
Executive producer Ronald Moore says that every season, they will approach it “fresh”
“Should we keep it to one book per season?” Moore asked. “So far, that’s what we’ve done.
But we’ve talked about splitting the books up, and we’ve talked about combining them. We want to have the freedom in the writers room to pick and choose and do what feels best that year.”
Moore promised that as they get further into Season 6, the American Revolution will be “front and center.”
On the Starz app and Amazon Prime Video, seasons 1 through 5 of Outlander are available.
