However, it seems that fans might have to wait a little longer for that ride as one of the show's stars revealed that production for season six has been put on hold.

Since "Outlander" made Sam famous, he has starred in some films including "The Spy Who Dumped Me" and "When The Starlight Ends."

According to Cheat Sheet, Sam Heughan, who plays the role of Jamie Fraser, confirmed that the upcoming season would be delayed as production was "supposed to start this week. We have scheduled for Fall. Will just have to see."

This update comes a few months after Sam stated that the script for the first episode of season six had already started.

While fans were jubilating over that statement, Oprah Magazine explained that it didn't mean that the show was already in production or that a release date has been set.

The site noted that just like the last five seasons of "Outlander," the upcoming season would be based on an installment in Diana Gabaldon's book series.

While the events of season 5 were extracted from book five, "The Fiery Cross," it also took a storyline from book six, "A Breath of Snow and Ashes," toward the finale.

With that in mind, season six is expected to carry on the storyline from the same material. Fans are also anticipating some storylines from the seventh book in the series, "An Echo in the Bone."

However, until the show goes into productions, fans will have to watch reruns to keep its storyline fresh in their memories.

Meanwhile, Express pointed out that since "Outlander" made Sam famous, he has starred in some films including "The Spy Who Dumped Me" and "When The Starlight Ends." The 40-year-old is also expected to appear in "An Unquiet Life," "SAS: Red Notice," and "Bloodshot."

His on-screen wife, Caitriona Balfe, is also not lacking on the fame front as she has also featured in entertainment projects such as "Monster Monster" and "Ford Vs. Ferrari."

The 40-year-old also lent her voice to the Netflix animated fantasy, "The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance."
