“Outlander” Season appears to be posing a direct challenge to “Game of Thrones” Season 6. A new trailer of the TV series has surfaced online, in which the show hints at taking on the popular fantasy TV series.

A new trailer of the TV series that surfaced on YouTube, tells fans to “forget winter,” which may be a reference to the “Game of Thrones.” “Winter is coming” is a popular saying in the north and is mostly said by the people from House Stark.

“Game of Thrones” is based on the book series “A Song of Ice and Fire” by George R.R. Martin. The next book in the series is titled “Winds of Winter,” which is yet to be released, and the title of the final book in the series is “A Dream of Spring.”

The new “Outlander” trailer also tells fans that “spring is coming,” which may be another hint that the show is ready to take on the TV series created by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Both the TV shows are based on books and have a huge and active fan following.

“Outlander” TV series is based on the books written by Diana Gabaldon. The first season of the show won high praise for the accurate depiction of the Scottish culture and the attention to detail in the costumes. The show will now take the main characters to Paris in the next season, where they will encounter political intrigue.

Cast members Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser) and Caitriona Balfe (Claire) are currently promoting the TV series. In an interview with EOnline, the two cast members played a game to find out who knows each other better. Balfe appeared to know more about Heughan than what the actor knows about her.

Ronald D. Moore is the creator of the “Outlander” TV series and Season 2 is set to premiere on April 9. The “Game of Thrones” TV series is set to air Season 6 on April 24. The show is known for unexpected twists and deaths of popular characters. The two TV shows are now set to compete for fan attention.
