Outlander Season 6 is currently filming and will be mostly based on A Breath of Snow and Ashes. Will we see Graham McTavish return?

While some of the storylines from A Breath of Snow and Ashes were used in Season 5, there are still plenty left for Season 6. We know the Christies are going to show up, but it’s not clear how many episodes their storyline will take up at first. It’ll possibly take up the first half of the season.

What is to come after that? Could Buck MacKenzie return during Outlander Season 6? Will we see Graham McTavish again?

McTavish spoke to Digital Spy, sharing that he simply doesn’t know what’s to come. He made a note that actors are always the last to know, but it is certainly possible that he’ll be asked to return at some point. And he enjoyed playing Buck MacKenzie in the fifth season.

Buck MacKenzie probably won’t show up in Outlander Season 6

If I’m being honest, though, we probably won’t see McTavish return in the sixth season. Buck MacKenzie isn’t part of the sixth book in the series.

Buck returns during the seventh book, An Echo in the Bone. While there is a chance that some of the seventh book storylines could be pulled forward, it’s unlikely for Buck’s storyline to happen so soon. After all, it involves a lot of time travel, including Brianna, Roger, and their two children in the 1980s. I don’t want to say much more for those who haven’t read the books.

We need to get to the point of the MacKenzies having Amanda first. Then we need to get to the point of them returning to their own time. With just 12 episodes in Season 6, is there really enough time to do all that? I don’t think so!

The good news is McTavish is up for returning if schedules work out.
