“Outlander” is a four-time Emmy nominee for costumes (2016 and 2018), production design (2016) and music composition (2015). Despite its worldwide acclaim, the show has yet to receive any above-the-line Emmy noms for acting, writing or directing. The case is quite different at the Golden Globes, where Balfe is a four-time nominee (2016-19), with Tobias Menzies and the show itself also scoring bids in 2016.

The fifth season, based on Diana Gabaldon‘s book “The Fiery Cross,” aired from February to May of this year. “Outlander” is such a ratings goldmine that it’s already been renewed for a 12-episode sixth season, which will be adapted from “A Breath of Snow and Ashes.” There is no airdate yet for Season 6.
