He said: “We’re shooting Season six and hopefully, there’ll be some news soon, about next season – a possible next season.

“So we’ll see about that. But yeah, I don’t know. I think as long as people enjoy it, and we enjoy making it then yeah, long may it live.”

Separately, In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, creator Ronald D Moore opened up on both season seven and rumours of a spin-off series.

When asked whether they were in the pipeline, he teased how some “good news” will hopefully be on its way soon.

He said: “Conversations are underway on both season seven and on a spinoff and I think we’re going to have good news on both those fronts before too long so I feel very optimistic about it.

“I agree that I would’ve been happy to see it happen sooner than this but everything happens in its time.

“I think both those things are probably going to happen and hopefully we’ll be able to say something about it before too long.”

Season six was given the green light ahead of the season four premiere in 2018, along with the fifth series.

Therefore, Outlander fans are right to express some concern regarding the lack of news about the show’s future.

The good news is, there are eight instalments in the Outlander book series by Diana Gabaldon, with another three in the pipeline.

The seventh instalment is tilled An Echo in the Bone which was published in 2009..

If the book is anything to go by, season seven of Outlander may be set in the 20th century, where Brianna (played by Sophie Skelton), Roger (Richard Rankin), and their son Jem are living at the ancestral seat of the Frasers: Lallybroch.

Outlander fans will know, each season largely follows the books chronological order, but some plotlines have overlapped from each book.

Fans have been sharing their hopes for a seventh outing of Outlander online.

One fan tweeted: “Can’t wait for Men in Kilts @MenInKiltsSTARZ …and it would great to hear about an Outlander season 7 renewal.”

A second fan said: “Personally I think the show should be contracted to the end of the books. @SamHeughan @caitrionambalfe @Writer_DG @TheMattBRoberts @RonDMoore Why not. Unless the ratings tank..which isn’t likely to happen.”

A third fan added: “Let’s pray for a season 7 #Outlander.”
