It’s been a while now since fans last watched season 5 on Starz. And now, they are impatiently waiting for Outlander Season 6. Back in May 2018, Starz made sure to let its fans know that the show is here for a long time. As they renewed both seasons 5 and 6 together. The CEO of Starz, Chris Albrecht had made the announcement saying:
“Fans can rest assured their beloved Claire and Jamie will be back facing new challenges, adversaries, and adventures in seasons five and six as we delve into American history and continue the story of the Frasers as they settle in the New World.”
So, when is Outlander Season 6 releasing? Do we have an official release date? Will there be more seasons? Here is everything you need to know about the latest season.
Outlander Season 6 Release Date
Yes! The official release date for the new season has been announced. The 8 new episodes for Outlander season 6 will begin releasing on March 6, 2022. The announcement was made recently on November 22, 2021, during the launch event of the ninth Outlander book by Diana Gabaldon’s named Go Tell The Bees That I Am Gone.

Outlander Season 6 Plot
Just like every other season, the plot of this season will also be based on Diana Gabaldon’s books. It will continue the story from where season 5 left off i.e. A Breath of Snow and Ashes, the sixth novel in the series by Gabaldon.
Season 5 welcomed a turmoil of emotions. And ended with the family broken.
This season will show how Claire recovers from her kidnapping. It will also show time before the American Revolutionary war happens. Besides this, the Christie family will also play a major role this season bringing more drama and darkness into the show.
Marsali and Fergus will be having their own share of drama this season. This is because Marsali will give birth to a dwarf son. Which brings the superstitions of that era to life. The couple needs to stand together and fight.
Lyle who plays Marsali said:
“Marsali and Fergus have always been this fun, romantic couple – young, cool – like the ones that make people laugh and are just really in love with each other and have all these kids. And this time, it just got really deep and really dark… They’re at their most tested.”
This means there’s a lot of adventure packed for the new season. All fans need to do now is wait for it to premiere on March 6, 2021, on Starz both in the US and UK.
