Make sure you have popcorn ready and switch the lights off. to the lowest setting possible! We’re in need of the perfect mood lighting and absolute silence since our most loved characters Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe return with a brand-new Season out of Outlander.
When does Outlander Season 6 premiere in Australia?
The highly-anticipated sixth season Outlanderwill debut in Australia on the 7th of March 2022 on Foxtel.
With just three months to wait, it’ll be nearly two years since the last time we checked in to Claire as well as Jamie Fraser (Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan) when the show starts again.
How does it play out to you in Outlander Season 6?
The show is based off the popular book series written by Diana Gabaldon. This time, the series follow the story of “A Breath Of Ashes and Snow and picks up the place we ended at the conclusion of Season 5.
When we last were able to see their faces, Claire had just escaped an incredibly violent and terrifying incident in the company of Lionel Brown (Ned Dennehy) and was able to return home to Fraser’s Ridge. As Jamie and Claire struggle to recover from the trauma of their past but they’ll also have to face difficulties on the home front.
“I think Jamie and Claire have spent a lot of time building this community [at Fraser’s Ridge] and I think this is the season where we really see that disintegrate,” Sam spoke about the new season when going to New York Comic Con last month.
“Yeah, Jamie went to save Claire, but I think, obviously, she hasn’t gotten over that trauma, and I think Jamie is very aware of it. He’s keeping an eye on her, and I think these cracks are really starting to show — not only for Jamie and Claire but for the rest of the inhabitants of Fraser’s Ridge. The war is coming.”
After establishing their lives as a family in North Carolina in Season 4 and 5 of the series, the family is currently attempting to make a mark in the society, which is, as Claire realizes, is moving toward an American Revolutionary War.
Protecting their home – that was built on land that was granted to them from the crown, and awe-inspiring for the period they’re entering Jamie and Claire will be faced with challenges unlike never before. The pressure is not only increasing from outside forces, but also due to the increasing conflicts within the community that are under their control.
While it’s probably going to be a little depressing for our favorite characters What’s new? We’ll also witness a few heartwarming moments throughout the course. And, of course, the classic steamy sexual scenes.
What was the process of filming Outlander Season 6 sex scenes during the COVID-19 pandemic?
There’s not a show in the world where fans are so concerned about the effects of a pandemic to the capability to film romantic love scenes that are steamy. However that’s Outlander the show we’re talking about!
Director of Production Maril Davis said on the Outcasts podcast that they deliberately waited to film the show until January 2021 in order to film the scenes correctly. If they had attempted to film in 2020, as they had originally planned, they wouldn’t be able to achieve the steamy scenes that the show is known for.
“We don’t have the sort of show that could be COVID-friendly. It’s something many studios are discussing, and some shows are able to achieve that, but we don’t. This is the most COVID-free show that’s ever. This could mean that there’s no kissingor no interaction, and there’s not any actors or extras.”
