For everyone out there who is excited for Outlander season 6, we are inching ever closer to production starting!
The new evidence that we’ve got now is courtesy of star John Bell (Young Ian), who posted on Instagram that he is prepping for the new season — and getting his hair together to emulate the current look of Young Ian. This is a character with a totally-unique look and backstory at the moment, given that he’s got that Highlander history mixed with what he learned during his time with the Mohawk. We’re sure that there is going to be some time spent on the latter during season 6 — it’s important that we get that in order to understand better where he is coming from.
With Bell starting to get ready to film again, we have to imagine that we’ll see a lot of news about season 6 over the months to come. With that being said, this is probably going to be one of the most difficult filming periods that the show has ever had. There will probably be a lot of scenes with only a tiny handful of extras and limited control due to the global health crisis. They may need to change certain elements of the story in order to make filming feasible, but we don’t want to read too much into anything at the moment. It is still early, and there are a lot of details to be unearthed.
Ultimately, the big takeaway here is that filming is going to be happening sooner rather than later. It’s been a long wait, but we certainly hope that it will be worthwhile.
