"The last time we saw Claire and Jamie, Claire had just escaped a violent encounter with Lionel Brown and returned to Fraser's Ridge," a synopsis of the trailer said. "The threat of the Revolutionary War looms over the ridge and Claire and Jamie must choose what is best for their family."

Cast members Caitriona Balfe, Sophie Skelton, Lauren Lyle, César Domboy and John Bell participated virtually from Europe in the NYCC panel discussion about the show.

Actor Sam Heughan, executive producer Maril Davis and Outlander author Diana Gabaldon appeared in person at the event.

The show will return with fresh episodes in early 2022. It is based on Gabaldon's fantasy novels and set in the 18th century. The ninth book is due out in November.

Season 5 aired in 2020 and Season 7 is already in the works.

The story follows Claire, a British World War II nurse -- and later a surgeon -- who is magically transported to 1700s Scotland, where she falls in love with Jamie, a Scottish Highlands warrior.
