The stars of hit fantasy show Outlander may jump through time, but fans of the show will have to navigate streaming services if they want to watch its upcoming sixth season. Outlander is moving from Prime Video to StarzPlay

Cast members Sam Heughan, Caitriona Balfe, Sophie Skelton, Lauren Lyle, César Domboy, and John Bell all return.

No date for its debut has been announced, although we are promised that weekly episodes will drop ‘early 2022’. Season six picks up where season five left off, with Jamie and a traumatised Claire returning to Fraser’s Ridge, even as the Revolutionary War looms.

The sixth season consists of eight episodes, with an extended feature length first episode. Fans can take solace from the fact that season seven is scheduled for a more expansive 16 episodes.  

Executive producer Maril Davis said: “The weather has become like a character in the show. This year was particularly difficult. We had to move some scenes inside at the last minute. This is a show that wants to be outside. This year was tough for so many reasons, the weather, COVID. We just got hit really hard…”
