If you’ve been waiting for Claire and Jamie to return to your screen, we have some good news. Outlander just returned to production.
Starz and Sony Pictures Television announced today production commenced on season six of the series. Check out the video below to see the cameras start rolling.
The sixth season of Outlander sees a continuation of Claire and Jamie’s fight to protect those they love, as they navigate the trials and tribulations of life in colonial America.
Establishing a home in the New World is by no means an easy task. Especially in the wild backcountry of North Carolina, and during a period of dramatic political upheaval. The Frasers strive to maintain peace and flourish within a society which is unwittingly marching towards Revolution. Against this backdrop, Claire and Jamie have built a home together at Fraser’s Ridge. They must now defend this home – established on land granted to them by the Crown – not only from external forces, but also from the increasing strife and conflict in the community within their care. For the Frasers and their immediate family, “home” is more than simply a site in which they live, it is the place where they are laying the foundations for the rest of their lives.
If Season 4 asked “What is home?” and Season 5 asked, “What are you willing to do to protect your home?” then Season 6 explores what happens when there is disharmony and division among the inhabitants of the home you’ve created: when you become an outsider, or an ‘outlander,’ so to speak, marginalized and rejected in your own home.
