Season 6 finished on a huge cliffhanger, and Outlander season 7 news shows that the story will probably cover much ground. Outlander season 6 is based on Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling book series. It covers many of her book A Breath of Snow and Ashes but only has eight episodes. Outlander season 7 will now include both the last parts of the book and Gabaldon’s seventh book, An Echo in the Bone. This means that viewers should get ready for a wild ride.
Claire and Jamie’s fight with Richard Brown and the safety committee led to a huge shootout and a witch hunt against Claire in the final episode of Outlander’s sixth season. Claire has few choices, so she agrees to stand trial. After she and Jamie get split on the way, Tom Christie shows up as her mysterious protector.
While this is happening, Brianna and Roger go to Roger’s seminary school, where they find a birthmark on Jemmie that proves Roger is his real father. Even though a lot happened in the end of Outlander season 6, fans of Diana Gabaldon’s books will know that what did not happen is much more interesting.
Outlander Season 7 Release Date
There’s no doubt that there will be a seventh season, which is good news. Starz said that Outlander will return for a seventh season in March 2021. Even though the season has been called “supersized,” this will be the second time Outlander has had a season with 16 episodes.
The first was the first season of Outlander, which aired in 2014. On April 6, 2022, Starz revealed that the seventh season of Outlander has begun filming. Sam Heughan, who plays Jamie Fraser, recently shared pictures from the set on social media, which was another sign that the show is real.
In other Outlander season 7 news, Diana Gabaldon said that the new season will take place in the United States, London, Canada, and Scotland. However, as is usual for the show, most of the shooting will take place in Scotland. The new season will officially come out on June 16, 2023. The show will have two parts. The first part will have eight episodes. No one knows when the second half will be shown.
The Cast Members of Outlander Season 7
Sam Heughan will be back as Jamie Fraser, and Caitriona Balfe will be back as Claire Fraser. Richard Rankin, who plays Roger Macklenzie, and Sophie Skelton, who plays Brianna Macklenzie, will also be back for the new season. New information about Outlander season 7 shows that Kristin Atherton was cast as Jenny Murray, Jamie’s sister. This was a big change in the cast. Jenny was played by Laura Donnelly at first, but she had to leave the show because of schedule problems.
Graham McTavish is back as Dougal MacKenzie, Nell Hudson is back as Laoghaire Fraser, Steven Cree is back as the older Ian Murray, Lotte Verbeek is back as Geillis Duncan, Andrew Whipp is back as Brian Fraser and Layla Burns is back as Joan MacKimmmie. Jamie’s grown son, William Ransom, is played by Charles Vandervaart, who was on “Lost in Space.” John Bell (Young Ian), Lauren Lyle (Marsali), Cesar Domboy (Fergus), Caitlin O’Ryan (Lizzie), and David Berry (Lord John) will also be back.
What Will Be the Plot of Outlander Season 7?
New information about Outlander season 7 shows that most of Gabaldon’s seventh book and the rest of her sixth book will be told in the next season. The rest of A Breath of Snow and Ashes is about Outlander’s time traveler Wendigo Donner and the terrible fire that brought Brianna back to the past in the first place.
Claire will probably go to trial for killing Malva in Outlander season 7, which will shed more light on why Tom Christie is protecting her. Brianna is pregnant, so Bree and Roger’s daughter Amanda’s birth is part of the story. Because Amanda’s heart is sick, Bree and Roger will probably go back in time to save her.
With Bree and Roger’s return to the future, Gabaldon’s Echo in the Bone has various timelines that follow both Brianna and Roger as they settle at modern-day Lallybroch and Claire and Jamie in the past as they travel back to Scotland to see Jenny and Ian.
Jamie’s son William Ransom, who is now 19 years old and Earl of Ellesmere, will be a big part of the story in Outlander season 7. Lord John, Fergus, and Marsali will also play bigger roles in the next season. In Outlander, the American Revolutionary War finally starts, which adds even more drama and action.
The Trailer Update for Outlander Season 7
When the video for Season 7 came out in December 2022, it was a big deal. The video started with a voiceover of Sam Heughan’s character Jamie Fraser talking to Caitriona Balfe’s character Claire about a dream he had. In this dream, he saw her surrounded by light, but it wasn’t candles or firelight.
Instead, it was an electric light, which he had never seen before. This played while clips from the new season showed the Fraser’s Ridge fire, the posting of the Declaration of Independence, a funeral parade, Brianna giving birth, and Claire being hanged. Then he says that he had dreams about the future.
Has Outlander Been Picked Up for Season 8?
Every good story has to end, and STARZ said that even though Outlander was picked up for Season 8, it will also be the last season of the show.
John Bell, who plays Young Ian, said, “We’re going to go out with a bang and tell the story the way it should be told.”
Sam Heughan, who plays Jamie Fraser, says, “It’s been an incredible journey,” and Caitrona Balfe, who plays Claire, says, “We hope we do you proud.”
Outlander season 7 will include both the last parts of the book and Gabaldon’s seventh book, An Echo in the Bone, and will be released in March 2021. It will take place in the US, London, Canada, and Scotland, with most of the shooting taking place in Scotland.
Outlander season 7 will feature a new cast, including Kristin Atherton as Jenny Murray, Graham McTavish as Dougal MacKenzie, Nell Hudson as Laoghaire Fraser, Steven Cree as Ian Murray, and Charles Vandervaart as William Ransom. Outlander Season 7 will follow Brianna, Roger, Lord John, Fergus, and Marsali as they settle in modern-day Lallybroch and travel back to Scotland to see Jenny and Ian. The American Revolutionary War will also start.
