Sam had fans swooning over the dashing snap

The new series, which lands on all Starz platforms on March 6, will see Jamie and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) continue in their fight to protect their loved ones as they navigate the trials and tribulations of life in colonial America.

The release of series six has been delayed by over a year due to the coronavirus pandemic. As a result, the latest instalment will consist of just eight episodes rather than the typical 13.

Sam teased what fans can expect in the new season via a video post on the show's official Twitter account late last year. "I think Jamie's past almost catches up with him slightly or comes back to haunt him," he said. "We meet some characters who come back into Jamie's life, and some are good, and some are more unsettling.

Outlander will return on March 6

"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."
