‘Outlander’ Season 7 Part 2 Finally Has A Release Date

We've been waiting long enough.

*Alert: This Article Contains Spoilers For Outlander Season 6 And The Novel Season 7 Is Based On*

There’s no doubt that finishing a season of Outlander leaves a Jamie-sized hole in our hearts, and we begin to wonder when we can anticipate the next (this time, part two of the seventh) season.

Last time we saw Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) and Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) was at the end of the first part of the seventh season, when the couple made the decision to return to Scotland but not before Jamie was conscripted into the Continental Army. 

Below, we share everything you need to know about part two of Outlander’s seventh season

When Is The Release Date For Outlander Season 7, Part 2?

Outlander Season 7, Part 2 will be released on Friday, November 22 on Starz in the US. 

By the time the episodes air, it will be just over 15 months since the season 7 part 1 finale.

Outlander is naturally a big feat to create given the authentic sets creating a world from long ago. The seventh season is a long one, with 16 episodes total.

In this way, it’s kind of like two seasons rolled into one, long season, two-part season.

Now, it would seem obvious to simply call it, season seven and season eight, however, this series will cover the plot points from the book An Echo In The Bone, which comes in at a whopping 820 page tome. There is a lot to get through, so that could be why they’re essentially filming two seasons but still placing it all under the ‘season seven’ title.

Who Will The Cast Of Outlander Season 7, Part 2 Be?  

We will see our favourites return to the screen for Outlander, season seven.

  • Caitriona Balfe as Claire Randall Fraser
  • Sam Heughan as Jamie Fraser
  • Richard Rankin as Roger Wakefield
  • Sophie Skelton as Brianna Randall
  • John Bell as Young Ian
  • David Berry as Lord John Grey
  • Caitlin O’Ryan as Lizzie
  • Mark Lewis Jones as Tom Christie

We also see Charles Vandervaart as Jamie’s long-lost son William Ransom, Izzy Meikle-Small as Rachel Hunter, Ian’s love interest.

Please be aware of major spoiler alerts from the book An Echo In The Bone, which are likely to feature on season seven.

The official synopsis Outlander season 7 part 2 says “viewers find Claire, Jamie and Young Ian leaving the colonies and arriving in their beloved homeland: Scotland.” 

However, the perils of the Revolutionary War force them to choose between standing by those they love and fighting for the land they have made their new home.”

The synopsis also says that Jamie and Claire’s marriage will be tested  “like never before.” 

Those who have read the seventh book will know what’s coming. 

In the book, Claire, Jamie and Ian set off to Scotland to see the family and retrieve Jamie’s printing press, but a series of mishaps keep them in the US, so they are forced to become involved in the brewing war.

There are a few close calls as Jamie faces off against his own son, William Ransom. Eventually the family make it to Scotland (Ian has found himself a girlfriend in the form of Rachel Hunter by now), and they sort out all the loose ends in the mainland.

There is a familial loss that keeps them there, but when Marsali’s son gets sick Claire goes back to the US. When Jamie heads off himself, later, news arrives to Claire and Lord John that his boat was sunk with no survivors. In a series of unfortunate events, John is forced to marry Claire in order to keep her safe. In their grief they sleep together, but it turns out that Jamie may not be as dead as first thought.

There have been a number of renditions of Outlander’s iconic ‘Skye Boat Song’ over the years, and season seven appears to be no different.

This time, it will be Irish singer, Sinead O’Connor, performing it in an emotional rendition that really flies.

Showrunner Matthew B Roberts released a statement on the new tune, saying, “Her rendition is, for me, a reminder of all that’s beautiful about Outlander. She is talented beyond measure. Hers is a voice of the ages – one which pierces heart and soul – and embodies the spirit of the show.”

Where To Watch Outlander Season 7, Part 2 in Australia?

Like the rest of Outlander’s previous seasons, season seven part two will be available on BINGEFoxtel ONE and Foxtel On Demand. It may end up going on Netflix eventually as well (after the show is finished airing), however that has not been confirmed as yet.
