Chatting via the show's official Twitter account, Sam explained: "I think Jamie's past almost catches up with him slightly or comes back to haunt him. We meet some characters who come back into Jamie's life, and some are good, and some are more unsettling.

"This season we've had the build up to this War of Independence, this revolution. Jamie's been on the side of the British, he knows they're the losing side. As we get closer to that point, stakes are higher. Not only as the country as a whole, but in Fraser's Ridge as well. A revolution in the home as well."

Replying to the video, one person wrote: "More than excellent, he will be spectacular, as always. He has handled every harrowing and heartbreaking moment with grace, care, and given stunning performances. Season 6 will not be any different. So thankful the stars aligned when he was cast as Jamie Fraser."

Another added: "It's not Outlander if there is no "unsettling" and JAMMF who Sam brings to life in the most exceptional way. There is absolutely no doubt he is going to be phenomenal in S6. Much respect." A third person joked: "I'm scared."

Caitriona Balfe, who plays Claire Fraser, has also opened about what to expect from the new episodes, explaining that her character will struggle with the aftermath of her assault in the season five finale:

"She's someone that has always been able to compartmentalise different parts of her life," Caitriona explained. "But we see her start to unravel this season. It was good material for me to be able to play."
