Outlander fans are known for their patience. Because of the vast scale of the production, filming normally takes a long time. Outlander fans on Netflix have to be even more patient because the wait between seasons is long. Years, to be precise.
The series’ sixth season ended on May 1 on Starz, the show’s main network. Now the cast, crew, and all of the creative team are hard at work on Season 7 of Outlander! That’s correct. The story of the time-traveling romance isn’t over yet.
The first five seasons of power couple Jamie and Claire’s journey are currently available on Netflix. With Season 6 officially completed, some of you may be wondering when it will be available for watching on the streaming giant.
However, Outlander season 6 will not be available on Netflix this month.
Predictions for the debut of Outlander season 6 on Netflix
Sassenachs, you’ve been unusually patient. The bad news is that you’ll have to keep doing it because the wait will most likely be long. Netflix has a habit of releasing fresh seasons of popular shows two years after the show’s original network airs its finales.
Outlander season 5 was the most recent example of this. The finale was the first broadcast on Starz on May 10, 2020, and later on Netflix on May 10, 2022. Since the final episode of the sixth season aired on May 1, 2022, we won’t see the series on Netflix until late April or early May of 2024!
That’s a long period of time. Two years is an eternity! However, some of you who first encountered the show on Netflix may have become accustomed to it. If you don’t want to wait, you can subscribe to Starz right now and watch the entire season immediately. It’s a fantastic one, believe me!
Season 6 Cast of Outlander
The primary cast, which will return for the forthcoming season, is as follows:
- Claire is played by Caitriona Balfe.
- Jamie is played by Sam Heughan.
- Brianna is played by Sophie Skelton.
- Roger is played by Richard Rankin.
- Marsali is played by Lauren Lyle.
- Fergus is played by César Domboy.
- Young Ian is played by John Bell.
In addition to the return of all of the former cast members, the show’s creators announced the introduction of the Christies, a new family in town. Mark Lewis Jones will portray the father Tom, Alexander Vlahos will play the son Allan, and Jessica Reynolds will play the daughter Malva in this three-person household.
As they arrive after Jamie agrees to assist Ardsmuir convicts to settle in and get comfortable in the region, the Christie family will definitely introduce many more plot twists to the next season.
Tom is a long-lost relative of Jamie’s. He is a conservative Scot who fought for the Stuarts during the Jacobite Rising and supported them. As a result, he is imprisoned in Ardsmuir, where he meets Jamie.
Allan, Tom’s younger brother, is a protective sibling who relocates to America after the guy who bought his father’s indenture papers delivers them to both of his siblings. He’ll most likely cause a slew of issues for Claire.
Despite the fact that Malva is first depicted as Tom’s daughter, viewers will later learn that she is not.
In truth, she is his niece. Malva is his wife’s and brother’s child. When he was imprisoned, the two of them had an affair. In addition, as the season develops, Malva will get closer to Claire. Tom, on the other hand, will not be a fan of Malva’s fondness for Claire because he is a conservative whose opinions differ from Claire’s.
What is the plot of Season 6 of ‘Outlander’?
It has been announced that the season would be partially based on Diana Gabaldon’s novel A Breath of Snow and Ashes, which is the sixth book in the series. There may be minor deviations from the original, but it will most likely follow the story’s main events.
The novel’s synopsis is as follows: “Jamie Fraser is summoned by the governor of the Royal Province of North Carolina in 1772 to unify the backwoods and protect the colony for King and Crown.
Jamie Fraser’s wife, Claire, as well as his daughter and son-in-law, are all time travelers. And Jamie knows that the shot heard around the globe will be fired three years from now, and the eventual result will be independence, with the King’s loyalists either dead or exiled.”
It continues: “The threat of a little clipping from the Wilmington Gazette, dated 1776, which records the demolition of the home on Fraser’s Ridge and the death by fire of James Fraser and his whole family, looms larger than the immediate peril. Jamie Fraser is hoping that his family’s time-travelers are mistaken about the future for once. The only way to know for sure is to wait and see.”
