This is the cast and crew behind OutlanderStarz’s supernatural romance epic Starz Juggernaut, was present at the 2021 New York Comic Con to show off a teaser as well as some exciting season 6 details. Chief among those, particularly for book readers, was the news that the Christie family will be arriving at Fraser’s Ridge this season and causing some conflict.
While the family first appears in the fifth book in Diana Gabaldon’s series, The Fiery Cross they are making their debut in season 6 — which is chiefly adapting the sixth book, Take a Breath of Snow, Ashes. Gabaldon was asked by fans what they were most eager to see adapt this season. She chuckled and answered many questions, though she said the Christie family would probably be the most appreciated.
“You’re gonna love them and you’re gonna hate them,” said Sam Heughan, who stars in the series as Jamie and attended the panel in person. Gabaldon, Starz Executive Producer Maril Davy joined him in person. Joining virtually were actors Caitriona Balfe (Claire), Lauren Lyle (Marsali MacKimmie), César Domboy (Fergus), and John Bell (Young Ian).
“We have this family, the Christies, who arrive in the Ridge,” Heughan explained. “Initially they are integrated into the new community, but very soon we start to see a lot of history that’s been between Tom and Jamie really get up under the skin of everyone and start to disintegrate or decay what Claire and Jamie have built at Fraser’s Ridge.”
A brief teaser gave us a glimpse of the Christie family at work. Three newcomers join the family. Outlanderclan Welsh actor Mark Lewis Jones (Gangs of London, The Witcher 2 & 3)Jessica Reynolds will portray patriarch Tom (Audrey Earnshaw’s CurseAlexander Vlahos and Malva are both played by ).Merlin, VersaillesAllan. The books are a little spoiler-free about the familial relationships between Tom, Malva and Allan. All may not be as it seems when the family first arrives as tenants on Jamie and Claire’s property in North Carolina.
“They’re just a weird little family,” Heughan concluded. “On and off screen.”
In season 6, the Fraser extended clan has more than one family to worry about. Responding to a fan question, Heughan also assured everyone that the Browns are “very dangerous,” “powerful,” and still very much a threat. There’s also, of course, the looming American Revolution and the knowledge that eventually Jamie will have to cross sides in order to be on the right side of history. Season 6 is shorter in episodes, only 8 new episodes will be available by early 2022. However, the panel felt that season 6 was more intense and traumatic. You can expect the next season to be packed with punch.
