Outlander Season 6 isn’t going to film in 2020 according to reports

We’re waiting a little longer than we’d hoped for Outlander Season 6. According to recent reports, the show won’t start filming until January 2021.

UK Casting News shared the update on Twitter. While this isn’t an official STARZ source, it’s been a good source for filming news in recent years. It also aligns with some statements released previously, such as through Instagram Stories.

It is certainly a delay, but whatever it takes to keep the cast and crew safe. The show was originally going to start filming in May 2020. That was pushed back to the fall, and now it seems it’s all pushed back to the winter, potentially due to recent lockdowns in Scotland.

Can Outlander Season 6 even film in January?

Now there is a debate over whether filming in January is even feasible. It’s certainly among the coldest months of the year, but a lot of Outlander Season 6 could take place in the studios. This will help to manage the issues of light and cold. The producers may look at the best ways to film scenes based on the weather outside.

Plus, it won’t be the first time the show has filmed during the colder months of the year. Some of Season 4 was filmed over winter, with some breaks taken to manage the snow. There’s no need to think that the weather will put anyone off from filming starting in January.

The cast and crew are pros. They’ve worked these types of problems before. There’s no need to think that they can’t do it again.

Will it be cold? Oh yes! This isn’t ideal, but the whole of 2020 hasn’t been ideal. Everyone has to work with what they’re given right now, and that will mean filming in January 2021.
