The long-awaited sixth season of “Outlander” is just a few months away, and star Sam Heughan discussed the new season during a Tuesday morning appearance on “Good Morning America”.
“Yeah, I’m so happy we’re back on air after the ‘Droughtlander,'” Heughan told “GMA” host Janai Norman.
“It’s ‘Outlander’, there’s everything there,” he said of the upcoming episodes. “It’s history, romance, adventure. It’s a shorter season due to COVID and some of the challenges we faced, but the episodes are longer, some of them are, and it’s just a great season. It’s dark, it’s exciting — the fans are really going to love it.”

During the interview, Heughan also recalled how he learned he’d been cast as Jamie Fraser.
“I was in a grocery store in London, and I had a whole bag of groceries and my agent called me, and I’d finally gotten the job, and I dropped all the groceries and I was screaming at the top of my voice, and I think I probably swore a lot as well,” he said.
“But being a good Scotsman, I went and met all my friends, and we met and celebrated for a couple of days, I think,” Heughan added.
