How to watch Outlander season 6 online in Australia
Claire and Jamie continue the fight to protect those they love as Outlander returns with new episodes.
It's been a while since we caught up with Outlander, the popular drama based on the time travel novels by Diana Gabaldon. The season 5 finale aired in 2020, almost 2 years ago.
Unfortunately, the pandemic not only delayed the release of new episodes, but we're getting a truncated season of only 8 instalments this time around. We'll take it, since a bit of Claire and Jaime is considerably better than no Claire and Jaimie at all.
Plus, season 6 will be intense given how the previous chapter ended. Here's how to catch up with the Frasers in 2022.

Outlander season 6 preview
How about a short recap of where season 5 left off? Turns out, Claire and Jamie really can't catch a break.
Frustrated with the lack of medical advancement given her future knowledge, Claire tries to alter history by spreading modern ideas of medicine and doing her best to move things along. However, not everyone recognises her good intentions – quite the opposite.
As season 5 comes to a close, Claire is kidnapped and sexually assaulted by a group of men. Jamie kills everyone involved in the assault, but the couple still has some healing to do as they deal with the repercussions.
"There's a lot of conflict in this season, a lot of emotion," author Diana Gabaldon teased in an interview. Season 6 is based on the novel A Breath of Snow and Ashes and kicks off on the eve of the Revolutionary War. Are you excited to tune in?
