Based on author Diana Gabaldon's sixth book A Breath of Snow and Ashes, the 8-episode sixth season of STARZ's Outlander finds Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan's Claire & Jamie Fraser (alongside Sophie Skelton and Richard Rankin as Brianna & Roger MacKenzie and John Bell as Young Ian) facing a country on the verge of major historical change. Attempting to settle in peace & thrive in colonial America, Claire & Jamie will face challenges unlike any before.

Now here's a look back at the first official teaser and season overview for STARZ Outlander Season 6:

The sixth season of "Outlander" sees a continuation of Claire and Jamie's fight to protect those they love, as they navigate the trials and tribulations of life in colonial America. Establishing a home in the New World is by no means an easy task, particularly in the wild backcountry of North Carolina – and perhaps most significantly – during a period of dramatic political upheaval. The Frasers strive to maintain peace and flourish within a society which – as Claire knows all too well – is unwittingly marching towards Revolution. Against this backdrop, which heralds the birth of the new American nation, Claire and Jamie have built a home together at Fraser's Ridge. They must now defend this home – established on land granted to them by the Crown – not only from external forces, but also from the increasing strife and conflict in the community within their care.

For the Frasers and their immediate family, "home" is more than simply a site in which they live, it is the place where they are laying the foundations for the rest of their lives. If Season 4 asked "What is home?" and Season 5 asked, "What are you willing to do to protect your home?" then Season 6 explores what happens when there is disharmony and division among the inhabitants of the home you've created: when you become an outsider, or an 'outlander,' so to speak, marginalized and rejected in your own home.
