Production for season six of Outlander kicked off back in February, and the show’s executive producer opened up about how they are staying safe while filming during the pandemic.

A few weeks ago, it was announced that Starz had already renewed Outlander for a seventh season, even before the sixth season finished production!

Here’s a synopsis of the series: Outlander spans the genres of romance, science-fiction, history and adventure in one epic tale. It follows the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945, who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743 Scotland. When forced to marry Jamie Fraser, a chivalrous young Scottish warrior, Claire’s heart is torn between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

'Outlander' Season Six Is Officially In Production, Producer Reveals How They're Safely Filming Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

Huge news for Outlander fans who are facing major “Drougtlander” right now due to lack of new episodes since season five wrapped….season six is in production!!

Matthew B. Roberts, the show’s executive producer, told Elle about their original plans to keep filming immediately after wrapping season five.

“We wanted to keep our momentum from season 5,” he said. “The cast and the crew, and I think even the fans, were very excited to get right into season 6. And then we decided to hit the brakes.”

Now, season six is officially back and filming. “I didn’t want me or the staff changing what the story is for COVID,” he explains. “We have a lot of intimate scenes—that’s where we live and breathe.” The solution to this? “Testing, testing, testing, testing. We had to figure out how to make sure we tested everybody a million times before they walked onto set and keep that bubble as safe as possible. That was our main focus—making sure everybody feels safe walking onto a set in the studios and locations.”

This season, Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan are working as producers, as well as the stars!

“They really, really took on the challenge of wanting to learn what it is to be a producer and what goes into it. It’s something, to them, they’re taking on to broaden who they are in the industry, so when the day comes that there is no Outlander, they can go out and produce their own things. It’s a testimony to wanting to learn and to make yourself not only a better actor but producer, too. The sky’s the limit for both of them. They’re crazy talented,” he said.

If you missed it, Sam earned a very high honor from Just Jared readers just a few months ago…and Caitriona congratulated him!
