Outlander’s berserk popularity
When it comes to historical television drama, only a few series come to the mind and one of them is Outlander. The series’ fifth season premiered on February 16, 2020, and has gone to become such a huge hit that fans can’t wait for Outlander Season 6 release date.
Outlander has been on screens since 2014; instantly becoming a great success story and consolidating itself a firm global fanbase. The series is based on a novel of the same name by Diana Gabaldon. However, it was only when US Network Starz adapted it into a series that the show went stratospheric.
Outlander Season 6 Release Date
The show follows the story of a young nurse who in 1946 finds herself transported back to Scotland in 1743. Since Outlander Season 5 premiered in February 2020, fans will have to at least wait a year till the next season is launched. Even though there hasn’t been any official announcement on the release date of Outlander Season 6 so far, our deductions argue this as the best logic.
Also, Season 6 of Outlander will slide in dashingly with a total number of 12 episodes just as in Season 5.
Who will be casted in Season 6
The obvious of the lot including Caitriona Balfe as Claire, Sam Heughan as James, Tobias Menzies as Frank Randall, Duncan Lacroix as Murtagh, Sophie Skelton as Brianna, David Berry as Lord John Grey and Richard Rankin as Roger Wakefield are set to reprise their roles in Outlander Season 6.
Other recurring roles including John Bell as Ian Fraser Murray, César Domboy as Claudel, Lauren Lyle as Marsali, Edward Speleers as Stephen Bonnet, Colin McFarlane as Ulysses and Caitlin O’Ryan as Lizzie are expected to return in the sixth season of Outlander.
