We’re less than two months away from the long-awaited premiere of the sixth season of STARZ’s hit fantasy drama series Outlander, and the official trailer has just been released!
Season 6 of Outlander will open with an extended episode, which will pick back up very shortly after the traumatizing events that occurred at the end of the fifth season. The last time that audiences saw Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan), Claire had just returned to Fraser’s Ridge after her violent encounter with Lionel Brown and his men. Now, with the threat of the Revolutionary War looming over the ridge, the pair must decide what is best for their family.
Watch the trailer below.

Establishing a home in the New World is by no means an easy task, particularly in the wild backcountry of North Carolina — and perhaps most significantly — during a period of dramatic political upheaval. The Frasers strive to maintain peace and flourish within a society which – as Claire knows all too well — is unwittingly marching towards Revolution. Against this backdrop, which heralds the birth of the new American nation, Claire and Jamie have built a home together at Fraser’s Ridge. They must now defend this home — established on land granted to them by the Crown — not only from external forces, but also from the increasing strife and conflict in the community within their care. For the Frasers and their immediate family, “home” is more than simply a site in which they live, it is the place where they are laying the foundations for the rest of their lives. If Season 4 asked “What is home?” and Season 5 asked, “What are you willing to do to protect your home?” then Season 6 explores what happens when there is disharmony and division among the inhabitants of the home you’ve created: when you become an outsider, or an ‘outlander,’ so to speak, marginalized and rejected in your own home.”
The series also stars Duncan Lacroix, Sophie Skelton, Richard Rankin, César Domboy, Lauren Lyle, John Bell, and more.
Outlander is adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling book series, and season 6 is based on the book A Breath of Snow and Ashes. The show has already been renewed for a seventh season, as confirmed last March.
Season 6 of Outlander will premiere across all STARZ platforms on Sunday, March 6 at 9 p.m. ET/PT in the U.S. and day and date in the UK for the first time on STARZPLAY.
