After filming of the sixth series had to be suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, fans have been suffering major ‘ Droughtlander ‘ so the cast decided they would give them a ‘gift’ to cheer them up.
Posting on the official Outlander Twitter page, along with a three minute video, they said: “The #Outlander cast just wanted to drop by and give you a little gift. Happy holidays to the best fans ever!”
Caitriona Balfe who plays Claire Fraser, also joined in to show the fans around along with Sophie Skelton and Richard Rankin who play Brianna and Roger MacKenzie.
Sam showed fans all the different clothes hanging on the rails for all the ‘settlers’ that will be coming to Fraser’s Ridge in the sixth season.
Sophie Skelton then took fans through Brianna’s wardrobe showing off her different coats and belts she’s worn in previous seasons.
Sadly the cast didn’t give away any spoilers for the up and coming season but fans really loved the video.
One said: “Thanks for the gift to help us get through this Droughtlander. We now can start the countdown to the start of production. This series is so spectacular to watch and rewatch without EVER getting tired of seeing Jamie and Claire. Eagerly awaiting S6 and more.”
And another wrote: “Thank you for this most wonderful Christmas gift! It wasn’t even on my list. But I do love surprises.”
And one added: “Happy holidays to the best cast ever! Thank you for the cute gift.”
Filming for season six will begin in the New Year.
Back in April, Sam treated fans to some behind the scenes snaps to get them through lockdown.
In many pictures Sam can be seen in his Outlander get-up next to his fake stunt double, taking a snack break and posing for selfies with co-star Caitriona Balfe.
