Outlander Season 6 is going to be a lot to take in – the cast guaranteed themselves. We've been hearing more and more about the drama and action to come from Claire, Jamie, and their numerous friends and foes as we draw closer to the show's Mar. 6 premiere date.
Sam Heughan, Caitriona Balfe, Cesar Domboy, Sophie Skelton, and others address some of the major ideas and topics that will be explored in the upcoming eight-episode season in the video below.
Outlander Season 6: What We Should Expect, According to the Cast
Many of the stars are expressing a broad variety of wild things about Outlander Season 6 in a video briefly posted to the official Twitter feed. It has since been taken down, for some unknown reason, but we’re guessing to keep us all on our toes.
Everyone from original leads Heughan and Balfe to newbies like Alexander Vlahos (who portrays Allan Christie) and Jessica Reynolds (who plays Malva Christie) were seen discussing the new season in the footage. And it sounds like it's going to be a wild ride.
A ‘Complicated, Nuanced, Very Dark’ Outlander
According to Heughan and Balfe, things will start off stressful for the Frasers, as the family will be "slightly fractured" as a result of Claire's attack by Lionel Brown and his men, while nevertheless "carrying on as if things are normal."
If you've ever tried to suppress your genuine feelings or move on from a tragedy before you're ready, you'll know that this combination isn't likely to work out well for anyone.
Vlahos is the one who said something in Outlander Season 6 will entail a "complicated, nuanced, very dark storyline," and we can't help but assume it'll involve his character, given how he and his family will become quite a big deal around Fraser's Ridge.
We first saw the new characters about a year ago, and Vlahos hinted Allan's "dark history" from the books at the time, so Jamie is right to be concerned about the newcomers to the Ridge.
Season 6 is based on material from the sixth novel in the Outlander series, A Breath of Snow and Ashes, adapted from Diana Gabaldon's international best-selling books. Starz has also recently confirmed the renewal of Outlander for a seventh season, which will be based on the seventh of the series' nine books, An Echo in the Bone.
