Showrunner Matthew B. Roberts confirmed that fans shouldn’t be concerned that this season is shorter than normal, he said: “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.
“Dinna fash, we will then film an extended season 7 with 16 episodes next year as life returns to normalcy.”
