Thanks to the folks over at TV Line, Outlander fans can rejoice!

Season 6 will premiere on March 6 at 9 PM on Starz!!!

Diana Gabaldon made the announcement today at a launch event for Go Tell the Bees that I Am Gone, the ninth book in her long-running franchise of books.

The show’s sixth season “sees a continuation of Claire and Jamie’s (series leads Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan) 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 back country of North Carolina; and perhaps most significantly during a period of dramatic political upheaval. The Fraser family strives 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.”

Claire and Jamie “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.

Mark your calendars, Outlander fans! March 6 at 9 PM on Starz!!

After a tumultuous year, the major networks were back – albeit virtually – with upfront presentations, announcing their proposed fall line-ups that include all of the returning shows and the new shows that will debuting.

Here is the breakdown for The CW:

8 PM All American
9 PM 4400 [NEW]

4400: Based on the original USA Network drama, this new take will follow 4400 overlooked, undervalued, or otherwise marginalized people who vanished without a trace over the last hundred years who are all returned in an instant, having not aged a day and with no memory of what happened to them. As the government races to analyze the potential threat and contain the story, the 4400 themselves must grapple with the fact that they’ve been returned with a few… upgrades, and the increasing likelihood that they were all brought back now for a specific reason. The cast includes Joseph David-Jones (Arrow), Brittany Adebumola (Grand Army), Jaye Ladymore (Chicago P.D.), Amarr Wooten (American Housewife), Cory Jeacoma (Power Book II: Ghost) and Derrick A. King (Call Your Mother).

8 PM The Flash
9 PM Riverdale (New Night)

NOTE: Both shows, The Flash and Riverdale, will kick off their new seasons with what The CW is calling “five-episode events.” The Flash‘s five-episode event will feature crossovers with yet-to-be-determined Arrowverse characters as well.

NOTE: The CW’s live-action adaptation of the Powerpuff Girl, to be entitled Powerpuff, is being overhauled and re-shot because the initial pilot was “too campy” and not as rooted in reality as network execs would have liked. And, the prequel to the long-running post-apocalyptic series The 100 is still under discussions.

Outlander fans!

I’m sure you already know that production on season 6 is underway in Scotland; and it was recently announced that the show has been given an early 7th season renewal. So we will have much more of Jamie and Claire and the rest of the Fraser family to look forward to.

Also, the show announced the addition to the cast for season 6. Here are the details (verbatim) from the folks at TV Line:

Relative newcomer Jessica Reynolds will play Malva Christie, whom readers of Diana Gabaldon’s books will recognize as the young woman who becomes Claire’s apprentice and eventually causes great trouble on Fraser’s Ridge. Meanwhile, Mark Lewis Jones (Chernobyl) will play Tom Christie, Malva’s father and one of Jamie’s not-so-friendly acquaintances from his Ardsmuir Prison days. Alexander Vlahos (Merlin) will play Allan Christie, Malva’s brother, who is wary of strangers.

Here is a picture thanks to Starz and TV Line of those new additions:
