WATCH: Welcome to Outlander Insider, where we discuss all things season six 

While Jamie deals with the not-entirely-welcome new arrivals and Claire is dealing with season five trauma by using her own homemade ether, Sophie and Richard revealed that season six is something of a peaceful time for their own little family. 

Who are the Christies?

"I can see why peaceful time in Outlander is too good to be true," Sophie explained. "But with Bree and Roger and everything they’ve been through, this is the most peaceful season we will see them, which isn’t necessarily saying a lot but they are settled now that they have decided to stay in the past. The chaos is all around them but they’re the rocks in the middle of it. They’re the stability throughout the season which is nice and different!"

Sophie opened up about Brianna in season six

Sophie also opened up about one of her character’s struggles in the show, adding: "Finally Brianna is introducing her engineering mindset and starts with the matches - and knowing what staple matches are going to be - and it’s so funny how unenthused they all are."
