There’s been a bit of a dry spell in the realm of sexy, time-traveling, action romances of late. Well, the drought is coming to an end. Thankfully, the British are coming as Outlander (perhaps the only sexy time-traveling, action romance around) returns for its sixth season.
The series still has quite a bit of life left in it, too. Outlander author Diana Gabaldon announced the season at a launch event for the ninth Outlander book, Go Tell The Bees That I Am Gone. They’re also very violent, which Outlander also is, so it’s a perfect metaphor.
This latest season picks up right where the last left off, with Claire (Caitríona Balfe) escaping Lionel Brown (Ned Dennehy) and returning to Fraser’s Ridge. Unfortunately, there’s a little business of a Revolutionary War on the horizon, which is bound to screw up all of Claire’s plans. This poor woman has such an eventful life.
Unfortunately, the last season didn’t end on a high note, returning to some particularly tasteless obsessions. Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya, who wrote the season finale recap for The A.V. Club.
