The sixth season of Outlander will follow on from the tragic events of the series five finale which saw Claire Fraser (played by Caitriona Balfe) kidnapped and attacked. While Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) managed to save her from the men who took her and Marsali Fraser (Lauren Lyle) killed her attacker, Claire still has a lot of healing to do. As the Fraser family try to recover from the traumatic events, they must also deal with the Revolutionary War.

As the cast have returned to the set of the Starz series earlier this year, actor Sam has revealed it’s not been the easiest getting back to filming.

Appearing on This Morning, host Holly Willoughby asked: “Are you filming Outlander at the moment?”

“Yes we are Holly, we haven’t got you up here yet but one day we will,” Sam replied.

Phillip Schofield continued: “How far into it are you?”

“We started filming in January and it’s going well,” Sam detailed.

“It’s obviously a bit tough with the Covid protocols but also the weather in Scotland has been pretty horrendous.

“The snow has been bad but it feels like Spring is finally here and there’s hope around the corner.”

It’s not the first time Sam has admitted it’s been tough getting back to work due to the weather.

Speaking to Oprah magazine earlier this year, he detailed: “The update is that we have been updated, and we’ve started shooting.

“We’re in production at the moment. We’re getting there. Obviously, with all the COVID protocols, we’re making sure everyone is kept safe.

“It’s kinda tough with the weather in Scotland right now, as it’s winter! But we’re just happy to be back working, and everyone’s safe.”

Meanwhile, Outlander fans have been given their first-look at filming as a photo of Sam and Caitriona back in their roles of Claire and Jamie was shared on Instagram.

The photo accompanied a short video which showed the production crew setting up the set for filming.

“The costumes have been fitted, the props are in place the sets have been built,” a caption on the video read.

The cats were quick to react to the video, with Young Ian star John Bell commenting: “I can confirm Rollo is still as adorable as ever.”
