Outlander Season 7: Outlander’s sixth season began last spring, but fans of the classic time-travel drama are already looking forward to season seven, which is set to start in the fall.
According to Starz, Outlander has been renewed for a seventh season, broadcast in March 2021.
Starz has a tremendous hit on its hands with its sexy time-travel series Outlander, which started its sixth season this week.
Even though season six has only just begun, fans understandably want to know if it will be the final season. Here’s all we know about Outlander’s future so far.
What is Outlander All About?
Outlander is a television series based on the ongoing novel series of the same name by Diana Gabaldon. Ronald D. Moore created the show, premiered on Starz on August 9, 2014. Caitrona Balfe plays Claire Randall, a married former Second World War military nurse in Scotland sent back in 1945.
She meets, loves, and marries Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), a handsome Highland warrior from Gabaldon’s fictitious Clan Fraser of Lovat, and joins the Jacobite revolt.
The 16-episode first season (released in two parts) of the television series is based on the first novel in the series, Outlander (known as Cross Stitch in the United Kingdom). A 13-episode second season based on Dragonfly in Amber ran from April to July 2016. The 13-episode third season centered on Voyager aired from September to December 2017.
The 13-episode fourth season, inspired by Drums of Autumn, aired from November 2018 to January 2019. A 12-episode fifth season based on The Fiery Cross aired from February to May 2020.
Outlander Season 7 Plot
An Echo in the Bone, Diana Gabaldon’s seventh novel, will be released later this year and serve as the basis for Outlander Season 7. It’s anyone’s guess whether A Breath of Snow and Ashes, Gabaldon’s sixth book, will be adapted in Outlander Season 7.
A Breath of Snow and Ashes, Gabaldon’s sixth book, inspired a section of Season 5’s plot. As a result, Season 6 of Outlander could be inspired by Diana Gabaldon’s seventh novel.
Fans of Echo in the Bone can expect the following storylines if Outlander Season 7 follows the narrative of the seventh novel, according to dianagabaldon.com:
“The American Revolutionary War is currently engulfing Jamie and Claire Fraser;
Brianna, her husband, Roger MacKenzie, and their two children lived in Lallybroch in the 1970s, regaining their footing after returning from the past—unaware that the past was about to burst out at them again.
Lord John Grey and his stepson William (Jamie’s unacknowledged illegitimate son) are involved on the British side of the Revolution, with William serving in the army and Lord John working in intelligence.
“In his tough love life, Jamie’s nephew, young Ian, is about to take a hard left turn.”
There is no Outlander Season 7 plot teases yet, but based on the two Outlander Season 7 scripts she received in late 2021, Balfe has hinted that it will be a “tough” season to film.
Outlander Season 7 Cast
The whole principal Outlander cast will return for the following season, with the possibility of new cast members depending on the story’s trajectory. The following actors have confirmed that they will repeat their roles:
- Jamie Fraser, played by Sam Heughan, is a character in the television series Game of Thrones.
- Caitriona Balfe plays Claire Randall (caitrionabalfe.com).
- Brianna Randall Fraser (Sophie Skelton) (Sophie Skelton).
- Richard Rankin, Roger Wakefield, Roger Wakefield, Roger Wakefield, Roger Wakefield, Roger Wakefield, Roger Wake
- Ian Young is a writer who lives in the United (John Bell)
According to the Daily Record in the United Kingdom, William Ransom, Jamie’s hidden son with Geneva Dunsany, will reappear in Outlander Season 7. William was a child when he first appeared in the series. Therefore an older actor will most likely take his place this time.
Who knows, maybe someone will be interested in the plum part. According to the Daily Record, fans have expressed interest in seeing male model Chris Mason, Poldark star Tom York, and even singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran.
Outlander Season 7 Release Date
While it’s too soon to predict when Outlander Season 7 will air, production began before Season 6 ended, hints that this Droughtlander won’t be as long as the last. Outlander Season 7 isn’t slated to premiere until at least 2023.
