Outlander Season 6 Debuted on March 6, 2022

Starz-Outlander-Season6-smallThe long-awaited premiere of Outlander Season Six was on Sunday, March 6, 2022 at 9:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) in the U.S.A. on the Starz cable network.

I consider this a good omen, because I began writing OUTLANDER on March 6, 1988. So I have great expectations for this season.

This season will focus on the events in A BREATH OF SNOW AND ASHES, the sixth major novel in my Outlander series which focuses on Jamie and Claire.

The new season kicks off with a special 90-minute episode, and will pick up not long after events in the Season Five finale, which as you may remember were kind of traumatic. I think Season Six is the best season yet since Season One, which was very special because it was the first. As to what you’ll see, I leave you with three words:

Christie, Amoeba, and Brown.

Outlander Season 5

wedding2-season5In Season 5, Jamie Fraser must fight to protect those he loves, as well as the home he has established alongside his wife, Claire Fraser, their family, and the settlers of Fraser’s Ridge.

In the U.S.A., Outlander Season 5 first premiered on the STARZ cable network and streaming channel on Sunday, February 16, 2020. The first episode is titled, “The Fiery Cross,”, and this season is mostly an adaptation of my book with the same name. Starz subscribers may watch all of the episodes online.

Season 5 then premiered on various cable and streaming services in other viewing areas around the world. In some areas, such as the U.K., it is called “Series 5” of Outlander, due to a difference in terms. (In the U.S.A., a “series” refers to all years of a television program, not just one year, or one “season”.

Season 5 is also available on blu-ray, DVD, and digital download in the U.S.A. and many other areas. It is distributed by Sony.
