Outlander season 6: Everything we know about 'Come What May'

By Sophie Buchan

Starz has finally dropped the first trailer for season six of Outlander - and fans are getting more eager to watch the show with many suffering from what they call "droughtlander".

The 45-second trailer starts off by showing husband and wife Jamie and Claire Fraser looking happy as they settle in the British colonies of America in the 18th century.

But it soon takes a turn when Claire says "it's starting - the storm, the war - it's almost here."

For those of you who don't know, Outlander is first set in 1945 when a married combat nurse named Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) travels back in time to 1743 with no way to get back. She soon falls in love with Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) and both must fight to survive - something that is clear from the recent trailer.

The historical hit drama series is based on a series of novels by Diana Gabaldon and has become a TV phenomenon around the world with much of its story rooted in historical fact.

What will happen in Outlander season 6?

Outlander season six will be loosely based on Diana Gabaldon's sixth book 'A Breath of Snow and Ashes' which spans from early 1773 to late 1776.

Executive producer Ronald Moore discussed this in more detail with Entertainment Weekly and said: "Every year we approach it fresh. Should we keep it a book a season? We've done that up until now. But we've talked about splitting books, and we've talked about combining them.

"We want to be free in the writers' room to pick and choose and do what feels most comfortable that year."

According to DenofGeek, Balfe opened up about what fans can expect from season six and admitted there will be a "seriously twisted narrative".
