IMG_6234

Mark your calendar! Starz announced today that Outlander Season 6 will debut on March 6, 2022. Great announcement on the eve of the release of book 9, Go Tell The Bees That I am Gone, announced by Diana Gabaldon tonight in celebration with author Diana Gabaldon on Random House’s Vimeo channel.

Get ready for the book to grace your doorstep soon, shipping starts at midnight. Audiobooks drop at midnight as well. Enjoy.

Season 6 will encompass the book A Breath of Snow and Ashes, with possible parts from An Echo in The Bone. The story follows the Frasers as more settlers come to The Ridge, and the wake of The War of The Regulation turns to brew a revolution. And there was that foreboding newspaper article that time is racing against, that drove Brianna to time travel in Season 4.

And how big will Adso get?

It’s a Wrap! Outlander Season 6 Wraps Filming on a Short Season

IMG_5788

Some really great news to help us get over the longest ever Droughtlander.

Starz ® announced during #WorldOutlanderDay on Twitter that it’s a wrap on Season 6. Here’s what we know so far:

There was an apologetic celebration on Outlander_Starz announcing that due to theIMG_5797 difficulties of dealing with a world pandemic and restrictions on filming and production, they have decided to have Season 6 end after the 8th episode. Sounds a little ominously GOT to me. However, they have promised to return with a longer Season 7, with a promise of 16 episodes and a Season 6 opener of 90 minutes length. Plenty of time to set up the aftermath of Claire’s ordeal and recovery at the end of Season 5 in “Never My Love”.

IMG_5798The time travel adventure will take on two of Diana Gabaldon’s books in the series, A Breath of Snow and Ashes, and An Echo in The Bone. Given it takes Gabaldon anywhere from 5 plus years to write a book, with her 9th book Tell The Bees That I Am Gone, due out this fall, we wonder if Season 7 may be the last season. Indeed since one more book is planned, the writers, who have already changed and added storylines, will no doubt have to wrap up the series. We are hoping we can see it reach a Season 8, and finally the mystery of the Ghost of Jamie in Inverness in the 1940’s will finally be explained.

And new pictures have arrived! What we do know, is that Claire (Caitriona Balfe) will be recovering from her kidnapping and rape, only to have a whole other ordeal to live with coming to the ridge. The seeds of the American Revolution have been sown, and war is on the horizon. Fergus and Marsali continue to add to their family, and that if one of the book storylines is brought in, the MacKenzies may just make it back to the 1970’s as war becomes more of a reality.

The Season 6 Episodes so far titled are:

  1. “Echos”, written by Matthew B. Roberts
  2. “Allegiance”, written by Steve Kornacki and Alyson Evans
  3. “Temperance”, written by Shaina Fewell 
  4. TBA
  5. TBA
  6. “The World Turned Upside Down”, written by Toni Graphia
  7. TBA
  8. TBA

We have perhaps our first glimpse of Amanda, Brianna (Sophie Skelton) and Roger’s (Richard Rankin) daughter?

New relationships (Beardsleys and Lizzie) will blossom on The Ridge, as well as a powder keg of ideals with religion, loyalties to King, or the new forming country.

Returning for Season 6 are: Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan, Sophie Skelton, David Berry as Lord John Grey, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Cesar Domboy, John Bell, Lauren Lyle, Caitlin O’Ryan, and Colin McFarlane.

Keep an eye out in these pages as we confirm this season’s locations and add them to our inclusive list of Outlander Locations. It was a season of very well kept locals for production and Covid standards expediency. So once travel get’s back to normal, we are all heading back to the highlands, lowlands and all places in between.

Gabaldon Announces Book 9 in the Outlander Series is Finished

Screen Shot 2021-04-15 at 3.10.27 PM

It is with a great sigh that we have experienced the last episode of Men in Kilts with Sam and Graham ending the series at the Culloden, battle field. I can say with personal experience, that I trekked around the perimeter of the moor in some serious dreich to get a perspective on how bad the conditions must have been for the battle. Now we have a drought again until season 6 airs, or could we possibly get the new book published just before then?

Season 6 will combine books A Breath of Snow and Ashes, and An Echo in The Bone. Plenty of time to re-read them for the third time.

Diana Gabaldon has announced on March 27, 2021, that she has finished Go Tell The Bees That I am Gone, the 9th book in the Outlander Series. It is announced that there is a release date of November 2021. Diana has broken down the publishing process for us on her website, and I suggest you look at it. After years of being asked when is it going to publish, I think she has given us a great break down to the process and once she has handed it over, it’s up to the publishers.

For details on GTTBTIAG publication updates, please go here!

The book may not be published until just before season is ready to air, or if the publisher wants to get that holiday selling going, it might be by the 2021 holiday season. However, since these books sell tremendously well, the publisher could wait until after the new year and more of the Covid delays in manufacturing have caught up. So, we are probably looking at early 2022.

David Berry and Tim Downie Give it the BTS All in Outcasts Outlander Podcast

Screen Shot 2020-06-28 at 4.24.57 PM

David Berry and Tim Downie have taken to Podcastdom to bring you fun adventures from their behind the scenes experiences. Since Downie left the show this season and we bid farewell to Governor “Tantrum” Tyron, we’re so happy he went to mess with the New York colony, but his wife was lovely.

Outcasts Podcast here

David Berry has been boohooing about that his days are gone on Outlander, but pay him no heed. Lord John Grey has a lot to do in the coming seasons, and since they are mashing up books, he won’t be gone for long.

In the meantime, to help us get through the Droughtlander that will be incredibly trying this year, the silly pair have started up their new Outcasts Podcast and have two episodes under their wing. This week, episode three is with Diana Gabaldon.
