On June 1—called World Outlander Day, to the show’s most committed enthusiasts—Starz brought a double dose of news via the show’s Instagram. First, we can expect season 6 in early 2022, but it is going to be a shortened season (yay/booo). Second, there is a silver lining: Season 7 may be a whopping 16 episodes long!
To be an Outlander fan is constantly an exercise in patience, whether you’re enduring the 12 months-plus wait between new seasons on its domestic network Starz, or checking Netflix for season five on a day by day basis. But at a sure factor in 2020, it changed into clean to surprise if we’d ever see Jamie (Sam Heughan), Claire (Caitriona Balfe), and the rest of the Fraser’s Ridge gang on our monitors once more.
“We look ahead to following the adventures of Claire and Jamie in America throughout the Revolution in addition to extra time journey at some point of this next season,” Starz president of authentic programming Christina Davis stated in a declaration pronouncing the greenlit season 7 lower back in March 2021. While the renewal wasn’t quite as exciting as when the community announced seasons 5 and six at the equal time again in 2018, we’re simply going to stay inside the gift and sit up for the numerous fresh episodes that watch for us…sooner or later.
Here’s what we do understand about Outlander season 7’s most fulfilling date, forged, and plot.Outlander’s seventh season could have sixteen episodes.
“With the challenges of filming in those unparalleled instances, Season 6 can be eight episodes with manufacturing on an extended, sixteen-episode Season 7 beginning subsequent yr,” examine the statement that got here along the announcement that season 6 had wrapped.
Yes, this bounty of episodes is an extended manner off. But on the bright side, it gives you masses of time to examine the supply cloth?Is there a trailer yet—or maybe a release date?!
Goodness, no. But we’ll will let you realize the minute there’s. The plot is based totally at the e book An Echo inside the Bone.
Each season of Outlander is based totally on a quantity from Diana Gabaldon’s ebook series, and season 7 is not any exception. An Echo within the Bone is the seventh of 8 finished Outlander books. While it became released 12 years ago, a caution for non-ebook readers: Scroll beyond this segment if you don’t want any spoilers!
On her web site, Gabaldon sums up the 4 most important Echo within the Bone plot threads as follows:
Jamie and Claire Fraser are actually inside the midst of the American Revolution;
Their daughter Brianna, her husband Roger MacKenzie, and their two kids, settled at Lallybroch within the 1970′s (locating their ft after their return from the past—however are unaware that that past is pretty much to jump out at them again);
Lord John Grey and his step-son William (Jamie’s unacknowledged illegitimate son), are embroiled within the Revolution at the British facet with William inside the military and Lord John at the clandestine facet of intelligence; and
Jamie’s nephew Young Ian: his bothered love-existence is ready to take every other sharp left turn.
In the season 5 finale, we see Roger (Richard Rankin) and Bree (Sophie Skelton) try to pass back through the stones while tethered to their son, Jemmy. That attempt failed, ostensibly because one or each of them have been not able to get Fraser’s Ridge out of their heads after they imagined “home.” Barring a chief divergence from the books, that means we’ll see them cross again to the destiny in either season 6 or 7.
Showrunner Matthew B. Roberts teased a image of the e-book on May 22. The solid will include a brand new face gambling a person you’ve met before.
Heughan, Balfe, Skelton, and Rankin will return as Jamie, Claire, Brianna, and Roger, the community confirms. Given their appearance within the source fabric, it’s safe to wager that we’ll additionally see David Berry and John Bell lower back as Lord John Grey and “Young” Ian Murray, respectively.
We’re maximum keen to look who’ll painting the all-grown-up William Ransom, the son Jamie conceived for the duration of Claire’s 20-12 months absence, who become raised by way of Lord John Grey. Last we saw William in season 4’s “Blood of My Blood,” he changed into performed via young actor Oliver Finnegan, so this can be a Fergus-style recast.
