According to Starz, season two will see the duo "revel in the Scottish influence of New Zealand, while diving into its own history". As Graham mentions in the video, New Zealand is a place that he loves "very dearly" as it is now his adopted home. Several years ago the Dougal MacKenzie actor relocated from his native Scotland to Down Under after he married filmmaker Gwen Isaacs.

Season six will consist of just eight episodes, rather than the typical 13 due to the "the challenges of filming in these unprecedented times". Showrunner Matthew B. Roberts explained in a statement to Entertainment Weekly back in summer: "We are excited to get into the editing room to work on bringing the fans one step closer to reuniting with the family back on Fraser's Ridge.
"Filming in 2021 has presented an unprecedented set of challenges which led us to the decision to truncate the season in order to bring the fans the most vibrant and dynamic season as soon as possible."
