The season 5 and season 6 both will contain 12 episodes each just like the previous ones did. The makers admitted that it was an uphill task to confine the story of an entire book In 12 episodes. They had to make some tough calls regarding which part they need to focus primarily on.
The plot of season 5 and 6:
The Fiery Cross is the book which is the base for the upcoming seasons. Jamie and Claire are the lead cast of the show and in the upcoming seasons also they can be seen playing some crucial roles. This season things will take a new leap in the New World for Claire, Jamie, and Bree.
The plot for the fifth season deals with Jamie Fraser’s constant tries to protect his family, to construct a community on Fraser’s Ridge, and maintaining a hard-fought battle between keeping pace with the government still managing to be on rebellious ways. His wife always held his back in his attempts. The crux of the story lies in loyalty, and while proving their loyalty people discover their true self.
