As the world slowly crawls out of COVID shut down, we know that actors are chomping at the bit to get back to it. We, the audience, meet with them in online interview sessions as virtual experiences. Many people in productions around the world are trying to get back in action. So this will be the longest Droughtlander to date. Are you ready to get through this?
You’ve just got your Season 5 DVDs and are planning watch parties with friends.
Things To Consider, And There May Be Spoilers
We know season 6 will center on the next phase rolling up to the War of Independence. Remember, Independence was declared but there were years of war afterwards. Readers of the Outlander series know that there are several years of plots and intrigues before war officially breaks out, and all the ugly lawlessness that leads up to it. Speaking of fallout, Lionel Brown’s corpse delivery sets off a revenge feud that will follow Claire and Jamie through the next few seasons.
Will we get season 7 and 8 announcements soon? It’s a struggle not knowing when production will start back up. It was set to happen this coming month, however the UK and Ireland are going back into restrictions. Production around the world is starting, then getting halted.
Will we get back to some of the book storylines, like the affair between Jocasta and Ulysses. If you didn’t see that one coming, it’s another book storyline. Ulysses has been Jocasta’s eyes for twenty- plus years. Phaedra’s absence during this season, was a mystery for many of us, being as she was Jocasta’s body slave. We hope we will see her return this next season. And when/if she does, some interesting developments will occur. After all, why build her character up so much in Season 4?
All of the Frasers have now dealt with rape. It was sad in the books, and now onscreen. How do they all cope with recovering from such a thing as a family. The only one who has escaped is Roger, who was instead violated by nearing dying and losing his voice. BY the end of the season, Roger has regained a new voice, one where his Father-In-Law shows him some respect at last.
And there will be a whole slew of new settlers on the ridge. Some for good, some for far worse. Besides, the Browns’ can’t be the only villains. That’s too easy.
What do you think they will add or keep in Season 6?
