"It's sort of the beginning of the end of Fraser's Ridge as we know it," teased Sam, while Caitriona added: "I think we see a lot of things come to roost this season that change Claire and Jamie's perspective of where they stand within their community."

The actress continued: "And definitely some of her bullishness and that blind faith in doing the right thing get a little bit knocked within Claire." Fans have since reacted to the pair's cover after Sam shared the post on his Instagram.

One fan said in response: "Beautiful as ever Frasers!!! Can't wait for season 6!!" as another added: "Cannot wait for this series to come back on." A third fan commented: "Looking Good Mr. and Mrs. Fraser."

Are you excited for series six?

Meanwhile, die-hard Outlander supporters were thrilled when the Starz series finally dropped a trailer for the upcoming new series, teasing that a "storm is coming". Posting on Instagram, the official account for the drama accompanied the video with the caption: "Here we go, #Outlander fans! Watch the official teaser for Season six."

The clip, which was shown on social media, sees Jamie and Claire settled into the British colonies of America in the 18th century, but their lives may be in more danger than they expected.

Outlander is due for release in 2022 on the StarzPlay Channel and is moving away from being freely available on Amazon Prime. According to its website, StarzPlay is available via Amazon or through the StarzPlay app for £1.99 for the first six months, and £4.99 thereafter.
