Outlander Season 6 filming has wrapped. The premiere will air in early 2022, and it’s going to be the longest premiere for the show to date.

One of the great things about STARZ bringing some bad news about Outlander Season 6 is that it also brought some good news. In fact, it brought a lot of good news.

Sure, the season is going to be the shortest yet at just eight episodes, but those four missing episodes are going to be moved into Season 7, which will see its season order match Outlander Season 1.

The greatest news is connected to the extra-long season premiere. Outlander Season 6 will kick off with its longest premiere to date. It’s also going to match just one other episode in the series.

Outlander Season 6 premiere will be 90 minutes long

Most episodes of the series are around 58 to 60 minutes. Every now and then, the episodes will drop to about 50 minutes and there are a few that go over the hour. It’s usually the premieres and the finales that hit a little over an hour.

Outlander Season 6 is going to be the longest premiere to date. STARZ has confirmed that it will be 90 minutes long.

Yes, that’s a whole hour and a half of Fraser/MacKenzie story.

This isn’t just the longest premiere but among the longest episodes. There is only one other episode that has reached this length. The Outlander Season 2 finale was extended to 90 minutes to fit in everything that needed to be told.

It certainly makes sense to make the Outlander Season 6 premiere so long. There are going to be new characters to be introduced, especially the troublesome Christie family. We’re excited to see where this story is going.
