Here is a NEW Interview with Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe From TV Insider

From TV Insider:

Outlander‘s sixth season has come to a close and true to the show’s high-stakes storylines, the finale concluded on a cliffhanger that is sure to leave viewers hungry for more.

More after the jump!

It was truly Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) against the world as Richard Brown (Chris Larkin) and his committee of safety surrounded Fraser’s Ridge, calling for the arrest of Claire for Malva Christie’s (Jessica Reynolds) murder. Determined to keep in place, the couple became engaged in a shootout as they refused to comply.

Ultimately, the standoff leads to Claire turning herself over alongside Jamie with no one else able to help them out of the predicament without causing more bloodshed. On the road to judgment, they face harsh treatment and the threat of potential death, but worst of all, Jamie and Claire are separated yet again.

Thankfully, Caitriona Balfe assures TV Insider that there aren’t any years-long separations ahead for the couple, but viewers will have to wait until Season 7 arrives to see them united. “I wouldn’t say it’s too, too long,” Balfe teases of Jamie and Claire’s eventual reunion.

For now, Jamie has been saved by Young Ian (John Bell) and the Cherokee after he was tied up and set to be shipped back to Scotland. Now, Jamie must find his wife who is currently being held prisoner in Wilmington, North Carolina. “It’s a great cliffhanger, isn’t it?” Heughan asks, acknowledging the task that awaits Jamie following his escape.

Season 6 was originally intended to include more than eight episodes, but circumstances like filming complications during the pandemic made way for a revised ending that the writers and producers decided on, says Balfe. “[The writers and producers] felt like this was a good time to stop [in the story],” she notes. “Obviously, I also had points where I couldn’t keep filming,” she adds. Balfe’s real-life pregnancy coincided with production on Season 6 as well.
