Production for Outlander season six is underway!

Caitriona Balfe took to Instagram on Monday (March 29) to share a selfie on set with co-star Sam Heughan.

Production for season six of Outlander kicked off back in February, and the show’s executive producer opened up about how they are staying safe while filming during the pandemic.

A few weeks ago, it was announced that Starz had already renewed Outlander for a seventh season, even before the sixth season finished production!

Here’s a synopsis of the series: Outlander spans the genres of romance, science-fiction, history and adventure in one epic tale. It follows the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945, who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743 Scotland. When forced to marry Jamie Fraser, a chivalrous young Scottish warrior, Claire’s heart is torn between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

'Outlander' Season Six Is Officially In Production, Producer Reveals How They're Safely Filming Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

Huge news for Outlander fans who are facing major “Drougtlander” right now due to lack of new episodes since season five wrapped….season six is in production!!

Matthew B. Roberts, the show’s executive producer, told Elle about their original plans to keep filming immediately after wrapping season five.

“We wanted to keep our momentum from season 5,” he said. “The cast and the crew, and I think even the fans, were very excited to get right into season 6. And then we decided to hit the brakes.”

Now, season six is officially back and filming. “I didn’t want me or the staff changing what the story is for COVID,” he explains. “We have a lot of intimate scenes—that’s where we live and breathe.” The solution to this? “Testing, testing, testing, testing. We had to figure out how to make sure we tested everybody a million times before they walked onto set and keep that bubble as safe as possible. That was our main focus—making sure everybody feels safe walking onto a set in the studios and locations.”

This season, Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan are working as producers, as well as the stars!

“They really, really took on the challenge of wanting to learn what it is to be a producer and what goes into it. It’s something, to them, they’re taking on to broaden who they are in the industry, so when the day comes that there is no Outlander, they can go out and produce their own things. It’s a testimony to wanting to learn and to make yourself not only a better actor but producer, too. The sky’s the limit for both of them. They’re crazy talented,” he said.

If you missed it, Sam earned a very high honor from Just Jared readers just a few months ago…and Caitriona congratulated him!

Outlander's Caitriona Balfe Reveals the Reality of Being a Young Woman in the Modeling Industry

Outlander‘s Caitriona Balfe was a runway and fashion model a few years ago, working with brands including Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, and Balenciaga.

Now, she’s speaking out about some of her experiences, and some of what she saw, being exposed to this industry at a young age.

“You’re supposed to automatically be this fun, interesting, edgy person that fashion people want to be around. But then at the same time you have to be so skinny and so androgynous,” Caitriona said on the “Thanks A Million” podcast. “There was always people doing better and constantly being compared to people. I think, as a young woman in your teens and 20s, it’s hard enough.”

“You know, there’s so many times where you would go into castings or even fittings for jobs that you already supposedly had and somebody in the room would just be annihilating how you look or your lack of personality or you talk too much,” she continued. “All in front of you. It’s really tough. I have so much admiration for girls who can come through that unscathed.”

She added, “I think everybody goes through a really wobbly phase afterwards trying to sort of find their footing or find what their next step is, because in one way, it opens up so many doors and it does open your mind to so many things and it does give you an incredible education in a certain way.

“But in another, it infantilizes you and it stunts you in so many other ways. I think it takes a while to sort of like rebalance all of that… There’s such a veneer of like ‘Everyone’s so cool in this industry,’” Caitriona continued.

“You know, don’t rock the boat, don’t be uncool, being uncool is defending yourself or questioning something… or not taking your top off,” she said. “‘Why wouldn’t you take a top off? It’s just t**s. Come on, like just be cool.’ I can’t tell you how many times that situation happened.”

Thankfully, Caitriona shared that she was lucky with who she worked with. “I was very lucky. I had some amazing bookers and had some amazing agencies, but I also had some absolute s**t agencies, and they’ve positioned themselves, I think, as they protect the girls.

“But because they’ve made themselves management companies, they also take zero responsibility. So all the girls are self-employed and, in fact, they employ the agents,” she added. “It’s such a weird balance of power because the people that you are supposedly employing are the people who are the gateway to all the jobs.

“[They dictate your earning power] but they also dictate everything… The worst thing, I think, if you talk to any model, used to be the days you’d have to go into the agency and you walk in and literally everybody is scanning you head to toe,” she added.

You can see some of Caitriona‘s modeling photos from 2002-2003 right here. Caitriona joined over 100 models earlier this year to demand change from one major brand.

Jamie Dornan & Caitriona Balfe Celebrate Some Exciting News for Their Upcoming Movie!

Jamie Dornan and Caitriona Balfe both took to social media this week to celebrate some exciting news!

The two actors will be starring in the upcoming movie Belfast, a semi-autobiographical film written and directed by Kenneth Branagh. It was just announced that the movie has been acquired by Focus Features for a worldwide release.

Belfast is about “a boy’s childhood during the tumult of the late 1960s in the Northern Ireland capital,” according to Deadline. Jamie and Caitriona will “play a glamorous working-class couple caught up in the mayhem” with Judi Dench and Ciarin Hinds as the grandparents.

Jamie posted the news story on his Instagram Stories and said, “Thanks Focus Features.”

Caitriona posted to her Instagram feed and wrote, “So excited that our film Belfast has found a home @focusfeatures … So proud of this film and can’t wait to share it with you all.”

Kenneth said in a statement, “Belfast is my most personal film. It’s about coming home – a dramatic journey of excitement, emotion and humour. To be embraced by filmmakers and distributors of such proven imagination and talent as Focus is fantastic. We are honoured to partner with Peter Kujawski and his amazing team. With the incredible support of Northern Ireland Screen also in the mix, we are very excited for the future of Belfast in cinemas around the world in 2021.”

Jamie recently revealed his favorite film as a child.
