Amazon Prime Video has had rights to the show since 2015, but Starz, the show's US channel, outbid them in the latest deal for the show. Speaking to Variety, Superna Kalle, Starz's president of international networks said: "Because we have such a great experience with Outlander domestically, the way we look at this is bringing Outlander home to Starz.

"When I first joined, I was sad to see we didn’t have Outlander in most countries, so the way we’ve been able to licence it in the UK, the home of Outlander in terms of where it’s set, is super exciting."

Sam recently shared a first look clip at the upcoming sixth season of Outlander – and it's pretty racy. In the scene, Jamie and Claire are discussing a new person arriving at Fraser's Ridge whom Jamie spent time with in Ardsmuir Prison. Despite Claire being 200 years ahead in history, her husband told her how she would come to him in visions.

Sam's character then says passionately: "But you... you were there with me. In the present. I saw you. It's what got me through it. You were always with me. Sometimes I think you're an angel Claire," before the pair then embrace with a kiss, as Claire says: "Would an angel do this?"
