Outlander season 6: Jamie Fraser loses power as old enemy arrives at Fraser’s Ridge

Outlander cast tease details of ‘exciting’ season six

Outlander fans would usually be preparing to watch the latest series but due to filming on the Starz show being put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, they are enduring a long Droughtlander. However, the cast gave fans a festive gift as they shared details of the latest series on the official Twitter account. It seems there will be more trouble in paradise for Jamie (played by Sam Heughan) and Claire Fraser (Caitriona Balfe) as an old enemy arrives at Fraser’s Ridge.

Speaking from the costume department, Sam shared: “Obviously we have to dress lots of people because there are many, many more settlers coming to Fraser’s Ridge.

“We have a new character, but he’s not so new to Jamie.

“Actually in Ardsmuir, Tom Christie is one of Jamie’s ancient foes. He comes to Fraser’s Ridge and tries to take a bit of power actually.

“So there’s a bit of power play and his daughter becomes a very, very special part of this story. I can’t give away more.”

Fans of the Outlander books which the Starz series is based on know that in A Breath of Snow and Ashes Tom Christie arrives on the Ridge with his daughter Malva.

Their arrival certainly ruffles feathers as Malva tries to poison both Claire and Tom when she tries to convince the settlers Jamie is the father of her unborn baby.

This ties in with a spoiler shared by actress Caitriona who said Claire’s medical knowledge will be tested.

In the novels, the time traveller will be concerned when many of the settlers are struck down with dysentery but her symptoms are different.

Caitriona teased: “We are so excited to bring you season six. There’s lots of exciting stuff going to happen.

“It’s going to be a really exciting season where things are coming to the Ridge that will even challenge Claire Fraser’s medical knowledge.”

Meanwhile, Sam has opened up on what he plans to do after his role as Jamie Fraser comes to an end.

Speaking of Scotland where the show is filmed, the actor remarked: “I will always have a place there.

“Something I keep asking myself is where will I go when this is all done? I don’t know. I don’t know what will happen.”

He said to Parade.com: “What is life after Jamie Fraser? I hope we get to the end and I hope we finish it properly. We love the story.”

The actor is currently filming his new romance film Text For You with Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Celine Dion until he can get back on set for Outlander.

He added he has been reading the scripts for the new series and getting back into character as the highlander.

“Reading the scripts recently, there is something about his voice in my head that I remember,” Sam shared.

“Honestly, I think as soon as I am back in his clothes and back on set, you just fall back into that habit.”

Outlander seasons 1-5 are available to stream on Amazon Prime Video and Starz now.
