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.

Starz® Announces Season 7 for Outlander

March 14, 2021

Starz® has officially announced that season 7 of Outlander is a go! Filming for the long delayed season 6 began this past month in Cumbernald, Scotland. Covid-19 restrictions delayed the season 6 filming based on Diana Gabaldon’s book, A Breath of Snow and Ashes

Season 7 will encompass the 7th book in the series, An Echo in the Bone. Matt B. Roberts will return as showrunner, with Sam Heughn, Caitriona Balfe, Sophie Skelton, and Richard Rankin all on board. Sony Pictures has picked it up as a 12 episode season. But don’t look for it to air before 2023. Season 6 will be possibly airing in early 2022.

Will the television series stay the course and cover all of Diana Gabaldon’s books? Diana is finishing up the latest book, Go Tell The Bees That I am Gone, the 9th book in the popular series, possibly early next year and may be timed for release when season 6 comes out.

Ron D. Moore, Maril Davis (Tall Ships), Toni Graphia, Jim Kohlberg and Andy Harries will be Executive Producing for season 7. It is not clear yet that Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe will produce again.

Oliver Finnegan as Lord William Ransome

And could we see William Ransome in season 6? Since Stephen Bonnet’s demise was brought in early and in the books, that is where Brianna meets her half brother for the first time, since it the writers are now condensing some story lines, we may get to see young William surface in the season. Outlander has been keeping casting close to the bone this season.

An Echo in the Bone continues with Jamie and Claire Fraser deeply embroiled in the American Revolution. Jamie’s illegitimate son, William Ransome, is an officer in the King’s army with Lord John Grey searching for him. The book has some great plot twists I will not reveal, and as always, the Outlander writers room will possibly combine scenes from the following book, Written in My Own Heart’s Blood, to speed up the story line.

Even though the American Revolution actually spanned 7 plus years. Remember, just because independence was declared, it was fought for for many years. However, television series on this scale can rarely go through 10 seasons. There have been hints that the Outlander series will receive the same treatment as Game of Thrones, shortened to 8 seasons and writers taking the helm completely as Diana Gabaldon is just beginning the final book in the series. If you have been a fan, you know she takes a good 5 years average to finish each book, often times longer.

However, rejoice in knowing you will have at least 2 more seasons, and a possible spin off series to come.

Men in Kilts: How Did They Fit in That RV?

Starz ©2021

Well we are in to week two of the new series, Men in Kilts: A Roadtrip With Sam and Graham, with Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish. So far, so good. We see lots of amazing Scottish countryside, that just makes you want to have a tantrum over travel restrictions. Or makes you that much more determined to get back to Scotland.

The first two episodes went from “Food and Drink” to “Scottish Sports”, and a few things in between. The sport episode just shows you how much manly challenging these two do to one another, the jabbing and ribbing, and the gratuitous clips from Outlander. In episode two, Sam challenges Graham to several sports, and surprisingly, or not, Graham is much better at throwing a hammer than Sam. Very competitive these two are. And how two such big personalities could fit in the wee RV is amazing, it must be like a TARDIS on the inside.

Next week it’s “Song and Dance”, time to hit the cultured road of Scotland. Hope you can join us and have some repast from the Outlander Droughtlander.

Men in Kilts: A Roadtrip With Sam and Graham Sundays on Starz®, Amazon and Amazon UK.
