As Claire walked through the stones at Craigh Na Dun, Claire and Jamie’s time-traveling love story started in Scotland.
But the two sailed to the colonies after years of mental and physical hardships and started a new life.
The last two seasons of Outlander have been set at their home in Fraser’s Ridge in North Carolina.
But fans wonder if the Frasers will ever return to Scotland, knowing their deep link to the Highlands.
Spoiler Alert: This article provides spoilers for An Echo in the Bone, the seventh Outlander novel by Diana Gabaldon.
The events of A Breath of Snow and Ashes should follow Outlander Season 6
Outlander is based on Diana Gabaldon’s novels.
And so far, every season has followed the plots of the novels loosely. Most of the events from book 5, The Fiery Cross, and a few from Gabaldon’s sixth book, A Breath of Snow and Ashes, were taken from Season 5.
But the series took some artistic liberties, as Galabdon fans know, and altered some characters and story lines.
In the book series, for instance, Malva Christie becomes Claire’s apprentice instead of Marsali. In the television series, Murtagh, who died in the books at the Battle of Culloden, lived much longer.
And the abduction ordeal of Brianna and the death of Stephen Bonnet do not play a part in the narrative until much later.
‘Outlander’ actress Caitriona Balfe admits that she has constant battles throughout the series while shooting sex scenes.
Claire and Jamie, in book 7, go back to Scotland
Claire and Jamie’s adventures begin to take place in the colonies in the sixth volume.
But they fly back to Scotland to see Jenny and Ian in the seventh book, An Echo in the Bone.
Given that Outlander season 5 dives into multiple stories from the sixth novel, including Brianna learning about her half-brother and the abduction of Claire, it is likely that season 6 will harken back to the events of An Echo in the Bone. So there’s a possibility that when the series returns, viewers will see Jamie and Claire sail back to Scotland.

For Season 6, the ‘Outlander’ team promises something different.
By now, when it comes to spoilers, Outlander fans understand not to rely too much on the books.
The writers strive not to make the series too repetitive, so they incorporate new elements to the storylines of Gabaldon.
Showrunners Maril Davis and Matthew B. Roberts, however, shared some information at a PaleyFest panel for the upcoming season. Without giving too much away, they announced that something “fun and new.” would be witnessed by Brianna and Roger. And they suggested that a larger story arc is coming for Lizzie.

‘Jamie and Claire, their love deepens,’ said Davis, as Deadline reported. “Roger and Brianna, they have their own journey…. And Caitlin [O’Ryan], who plays Lizzie, has a great story, and she’s such a great actress.”
Roberts said, “There will be joys, there will be drama, there will be suffering, there will be tears,” “All of the above.”
Development is currently underway on Season 6 of Outlander.
Sometime in the second half of 2021, the STARZ series is expected to return.
