As we all prepare for the launch of Outlander season 6 in 2022, there is something more to enjoy today!
As you can see below, the fine folks over at Starz have put together a new video featuring Young Ian himself in John Bell reacting to fan tweets. Are there any spoilers within this video? Not exactly, but we nonetheless think that this is a great deal of fun. You hear about fans’ desires for an Ian / Rollo spin-off show and a whole lot more in there.
To us, there is no denying that there is a whole lot more story for this character than Outlander can ever show. We only got a tiny piece of his time with the Mohawk and really, the writers have yet to even explore fully what happened to him there. He clearly went through a traumatic experience, and this is a character who has dealt with a lot of pain and heartache already in his life. He may still be young (hence his name), but he has lived a life of someone twice his age.
We are looking forward to seeing Ian more around Jamie, Claire, and everyone at Fraser’s Ridge in season 6 after he was gone for a certain period of time in season 5. The show had to create an emotional impact following his decision in the season 4 finale, and that would not have been possible if he was to come back almost right away.
Hopefully, a full Outlander season 6 trailer will give you at least a little more insight when it comes to the future of Young Ian as a character, even if we only get it in small slivers. With so much story to tackle coming up, there may only be so any opportunities for the supporting cast to shine.
