Outlander season six is expected to start production soon which is good news for fans after the show postponed filming in May 2020 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Based on the bestselling novels by Diana Gabaldon, Outlander follows the life of Claire Randall (played by Caitriona Balfe), a combat nurse from 1945 who gets taken back in time to 1743. In unknown territory, Claire's life is threatened and she has to marry a young Scottish warrior Jamie Fraser (played by Sam Heughan).

In a recent interview with Parade, Heughan revealed that in the upcoming season there's a chance of seeing a new side to Jamie.

"There is also something that surprises you as well. Every season, every episode, there is always something that you don’t expect," he said.

"And I’m like, 'Ok, that’s what Jamie’s doing. That’s who he is.' Actually, this season from what I’ve seen of the scripts, I’m excited because I think there is another side to him you haven’t seen before."

As the pandemic put the filming of Outlander on pause, Heughan said that there are protocols in place and that the production team and cast will be forming a work bubble in order to film the new series.

Heughan said: "It doesn’t matter if it is an intimate scene or a regular scene, we are going to be in contact with each other, so I think we will be in our own bubble. It won’t just be the actors, it will be our core team, hair and makeup.

"You literally can not do the job without having everyone around you. I know we have a strict set of rules and it will take some getting used to but we will be safe. We are being tested, we have face coverings, so we are going to be in a really safe place."

Outlander airs on Starz in the US. The show streams on Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
