The first teaser of the fantasy drama's new season was unveiled at the New York Comic Con.
Even after withstanding the multitude of traumas thrown their way, Jamie and Claire’s trials seem to see no end. The first teaser of Outlander’s latest season reveals the couple on the precipice of yet another ordeal, bigger than the ones that came before them.
It was unveiled at the New York Comic Con recently, by the panel of Starz, which is the US network where the show originated.
The minute-long teaser starts on a pleasant note, with moments of happiness between Jamie and Claire, as well as Brianna and Roger. However, war is imminent and the threat of the revolution is looming at their doorstep. The only snippet of dialogue is an ominous proclamation from Claire, where she is heard saying how the ‘war is almost here’.
Watch the teaser here:
Outlander tells the story of a young 20th century woman named Claire, who is mysteriously transported back in time to the 1700s through ancient ruins. There she falls in love with and marries Jamie and the two try to make it through some of history’s most trying times together.
The upcoming sixth season of the show will see the pair as they lie in North Carolina and try to protect themselves and their family from the ravages of the war to come; The American Revolutionary War of 1775 which saw American colonies battle against Great Britain.
The show is based upon a series of books by Diana Gabaldon, with each season’s premise following a different book. The upcoming season will be based on A Breath of Snow and Ashes.
The series stars Caitríona Balfe, Sam Heughan, Richard Rankin and Sophie Skelton among others.
The latest season will be released in 2022, with the exact date to be announced soon.
The first five seasons of Outlander are available to stream on Netflix.
