The fifth season of Outlander came to an end in May but filming for series six is yet to start filming as the coronavirus pandemic put production on hold. Fans have been anxiously waiting for updates on when lead stars Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe will be back on set. Now, it’s been reported filming will commence in 2021.
After a long pause on production due to the pandemic, UK Casting News reported filming will finally start in January 2021.
They posted on their official Twitter account: “The season VI of the popular TV series OUTLANDER is finally #filming in Scotland in January 2021.”
Unsurprisingly, the news did not go down well with fans with many replying to the tweet expressing their disappointment.
“Really, how much filming can one do in January in Scotland??? This gonna be the longest droughtlander EVER!!!” one viewer posted.
