Outlander is based on the novel series by Diana Gabaldon. The novels follow the story of a 20th-century doctor, Claire Randall (played by Caitriona Balfe) who has time travelled to the past and falls in love with 18th century Scottish Highlander, Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan).
So far, there are have been five seasons of Outlander and each instalment is based on the novels by Diana Gabaldon, usually in chronological order.
Some seasons of Outlander have seen crossovers of the novels, with alternative plots added to the story and some major plot points from the books have been absent from the series.

With that being said, the series has largely stuck close to the original novels which means by taking a look in-depth at the sixth book, A Breath of Snow and Ashes, fans may get a glimpse of what is in store for season six.
The last time fans saw Jamie and Claire, political unrest was brewing in the colonies as the Frasers tried to live peacefully in the foothills of North Carolina.
In A Breath of Snow and Ashes, Jamie and Claire face the American Revolution head-on and face specific threats to Frasers Ridge in North Carolina.
Jamie finds himself torn between remaining loyal to the oath he swore to the British crown after the Jacobite rising or fighting for his families freedom in the new world which his daughter Brianna (Sophie Skelton) and son-in-law Roger (Richard Rankin) have assured him of.
Also, in the sixth book, Claire’s nursing skills raise suspicions of witchcraft and even murder.
The official Goodreads summary for OUtlander reads: “The year is 1772, and on the eve of the American Revolution, the long fuse of rebellion has already been lit.
“Men lie dead in the streets of Boston, and in the backwoods of North Carolina, isolated cabins burn in the forest.
“With chaos brewing, the governor calls upon Jamie Fraser to unite the backcountry and safeguard the colony for King and Crown.
“But from his wife, Jamie knows that three years hence the shot heard round the world will be fired, and the result will be independence — with those loyal to the King either dead or in exile. And there is also the matter of a tiny clipping from The Wilmington Gazette, dated 1776, which reports Jamie’s death, along with his kin.
“For once, he hopes, his time-travelling family may be wrong about the future.”

Outlander fans already know the Frasers will meet the Christie family in the sixth series.
Gangs in London’s Mark Lewis Jones will take on the role of patriarch Tom Christie, alongside Versailles star Alexander Vlahos as his son Allan Christie and My Left Nut’sJessica Reynolds as his daughter, Malva Christie.
In the books, the Christie family pose a huge threat to the Frasers, especially when Malva Christie (Jessica Reynolds) claims Jamie is the father of her child.
In reality, the father of Malva’s baby is her stepbrother Tom but she ends up murdered before the truth can come to the surface.
In a shocking twist, Claire is arrested for Malva’s murder which will certainly make for some dramatic storylines in the series.
Fans can expect to see more of the Beardsley brothers, Josiah (Paul Gorman) and Keziah, in the sixth series if the show decides to tell the Lizzie (Caitlin O’Ryan) pregnancy storyline.
Long story short, Lizzie has had sexual relations with both brothers and ends up pregnant but has absolutely no idea who is the father.
In the book, Lizzie marries them both – marking Outlanders first thruple.
In an official behind-the-scenes video, released ahead of the Sunday, March 29 episode of Men in Kilts: A Roadtrip with Sam and Graham, the stars of Outlander have teased a “very exciting season.”
Richard Rankin who plays Roger Mackenzie shared: “[There are] lots of new characters, lots of new relationships and lots of potential drama. That’s what Outlander does so well.”
Sam Heughan added: “The underlying theme of the season is there is definitely a lot more turmoil here.”
Fans will have to wait until Outlander season six lands on screens to find out more.
