Outlander Renewed for Season 7Mar 14, 2021
US Network Starz has confirmed the renewal of Outlander for a seventh season - and with the delayed Season 6 not yet to appear until the end of the year at the earliest (though most likely early 2022), this will be welcome news for Outlander fans eager to watch the show progress through Diana Gabaldon's entire series of books.
Season seven will consist of 12 episodes and will be based on the seventh of author Diana Gabaldon's eight-book series, An Echo in the Bone.
Filming is currently underway in Scotland, with star cast members Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan returning as Claire and Jamie Fraser.
In more good news, Matt Roberts will continue to serve as showrunner on the drama for Starz, despite signing a deal to join Disney. Moore was one of the lead architects in bringing Outlander to our television screens.
Speaking to The Holywood Reporter, a Starz spokesperson said: "The hit series Outlander embodies everything about our initiative including a powerful female lead character and an amazing team of storytellers. We look forward to following the adventures of Claire and Jamie in America during the Revolution as well as more time travel during this next season."
With Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish continuing their Men in Kilts journey to keep fans occupied in the interim, we are delighted, as always, to see more of Scotland on our screens, and coming back to our screens in future!
