What Is Outlander?

The series is based on Diana Gabaldon's international best-selling books, which follows a woman from mid-20th century England who falls back in time to 18th century Scotland. Generally speaking, the show spans the genres of romance, science-fiction, history, and adventure and follows the story of Claire Randall. She is a married combat nurse from 1945, who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743 Scotland, where she falls in love with a dashing Scottish highlander, Jamie Fraser. The show has been running since 2014, and the sixth season, in particular, will be tackling material from the sixth book in the series.

Outlander Season 6 Trailer and Synopsis

Starz has revealed a teaser trailer for "Outlander" season 6, which we've included for you to check out above. We also have the (admittedly lengthy) synopsis for the upcoming season, which you can read below.

The sixth season of "Outlander" sees a continuation of Claire and Jamie's fight to protect those they love, as they navigate the trials and tribulations of life in colonial America. 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.
