Fantasy period drama Outlander Season 6 official release date has been impacted as coronavirus sparks fear in Glasgow.
The time-travel drama Outlander Season 6 shooting has come to a standstill ever since the United Kingdom government has taken cognizance of the rampant spread of coronavirus.
- Season 6 production stalled due to coronavirus
- Outlander Season 6 Release Date Announcement Out Of Question Until 2020-end
- Season 7 future
The UK, among other countries, is the worst hit due to the spread of coronavirus. Thus, Outlander series maker Rondald D Moore has thought it to be in the best of everybody’s decision to halt the shoot.
Outlander Season 6 Release Date Announcement Out Of Question Until 2020-end
Outlander Season 5 premiered on Starz on February 16, 2020. Meanwhile, the broadcaster confirmed the back-to-back renewals of season 5 and 6 in 2018.
Outlander 6 underwent production only in February this year. However, one month into the shooting, the filming has been stalled due to the coronavirus lockdown. Therefore, Outlander Season 6 will only complete the filming of all its 12-episodes by year-end.
The entire footage will then undergo extensive editing in its post-production phase. Thus, it is out of the question to expect the sixth season’s release date any time before 2020.
In lieu of the aforementioned details, you can also expect Outlander Season 6 to release only in mid-2021.
Season 7 future
The British series is based on Diana Gabaldon’s novel of the same name. The first season of the epic drama series was based on Gabaldon’s first novel Cross Stitch. Meanwhile, the second season was based on the second book authored by her called Dragonfly in Amber.
Subsequently, Season 3 and 4 were based on the third and fourth book series called Voyager and Drums of Autumn. And, Season 5 and 6 are based on the artist’s fifth and sixth book, named The Fiery Cross and A Breath of Snow and Ashes, respectively.
The author has so far penned a total of nine books. Therefore, it can be anticipated that Outlander is at least expected to have a minimum of nine seasons.
Therefore, Season 7 of Outlander will be based on the seventh book named An Echo in the Bone. Meanwhile, Season 8 is expected to be based on the eighth book called Written in My Own Heart’s Blood. And, the ninth series is likely to be based on the ninth novel called Go Tell The Bees That I Am Gone.
However, there is no hundred per cent surety whether or not Starz or the director of the series is willing to stretch the series that far. In addition, the decision also quite solely depends on the ratings of the show and the budget manifestation.
