With the cast and crew recently returning to the Scottish set of the hit series, after a long delay brought on by the covid outbreak, the filming of season six was firmly back on track.
First producer Matthew B. Roberts confirmed they are ready to go in an interview with Elle magazine, then images began to surface of the cast filming, now stars Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe have offered a sneak peek of them on set together.
And that’s not all, to add to the excitement, Starz took the opportunity to tease fans further with a wee clip of filming, that was aired during the latest episode of Sam and Graham McTavish’s hit show Men in Kilts.
The minute long clip, shows the cast getting put through their paces with newcomers The Christie family, clearly making a big impact.

Speaking about the excitement around the new season, Richard Rankin, who plays Roger Mackenzie Wakefield, said: “Lots of new characters, lots of new relationships, lots of potential drama.
“It’s what Outlander does so well.”
While Caitriona Balfe added that there’s lot to be excited about, and Sam pointing out that the underlying theme of the season is that there’s a lot more turmoil here, and hinting that the Christie family have connections to Jamie’s past.
The clip also features Sophie Skelton, who plays Bri Fraser, and shows Young Ian (Scottish actor John Bell) leaping into action.
In another shot Young Ian can be seen with newcomer Malva Christie, who is played by Jessica Reynolds, and a kilted Jamie is spotted helping a kneeling Allan Christie, who is played by English actor Alexander Vlahos.
There’s a lot to digest and will sure to have fans delighted to see the gang back in action.
Coupled with the fact that author Diana Gabaldon has just revealed that book 9, Go Tell The Bees That I Am Gone, is finally finished and ready to be released.
Posting on Twitter, Diana wrote: “YES! BEES is FINISHED!!”
But quickly added that she has no idea when the publishing date will be, pointing out that the “publisher decides that”.
Our guess is 2021 will be an exciting year for Outlander fans.
