Moreover, the sixth season will unfold a new chapter of the Frasers as they make their home in the New World.
Outlander season 5 recap
The Outlander season 5 finale portrays another heartbreaking moment for Claire and Jaime Fraser. It ended with an incredibly brutal abduction and sexual assault of Claire in the hands of Lionel Brown and his men. Looking back, Lionel Brown and Jaime Fraser have not been good friends. Lionel and his brother want to kill Isaiah Morton, a member of Jaime’s militia, because Isaiah had dishonored Lionel’s daughter, Alicia.

Claire is then kidnapped and taken into hostage by Lionel and his men. For two days, Claire suffered from beating and rape. Just like the previous seasons, Jamie managed to save Claire from Brown.
To escape the horrific torture, Claire imagines her life with Jamie living in the 1960s. She holds a Thanksgiving dinner, and everyone in her circle is invited. In a mental escape, Claire finds comfort in Jamie, holding her and keeping her safe.
While Jamie was able to save her beloved wife, Claire still has so much to process. Thus season 6 will follow Claire’s process of coping up with her trauma.
Outlander season 6 plot details
Season 6 is expected to follow Diana Gabaldon’s sixth book series, A Breath of Snow and Ashes. However, the story will also bring in some of the narratives in her seventh book, An Echo in the Bone.
Season 6 will also feature Claire’s journey to healing and allow herself to trust once again with the help of her family.

Although the plot may loosely be based on the books, Producer Ronald Moore explained that there’s always a possibility of changing the plot. Back in 2108, he stated in an interview,
“Should we keep it a book a season? We’ve done that up until now. But we’ve talked about splitting books, and we’ve talked about combining them. We want to be free in the writers’ room to pick and choose and do what feels most comfortable that year.”
When will season 6 arrive?
There is no official release date for season 6, even though production has somewhat started. However, several speculations pointed to a 2021 arrival.
