Has Outlander Been Confirmed For A Season Seven?
According to Variety, Outlander has officially been renewed for a season seven. The news comes as the show is currently in production on season six, which was supposed to air in late 2020 but was ultimately delayed due to the pandemic.
Consisting of 12 episodes, it is rumoured that season seven of the popular series will follow the seventh novel in Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander book series, An Echo in the Bone.
In the novel, the story returns to Lallybroch, where Brianna, Roger, Jem and Mandy discover letters from Claire and Jamie from the past, one of which mentions hidden gold with a location only known by Jem. The novel continues to chronicle the adventures of Claire and Jamie in the 18th century, as well as their daughter, Brianna MacKenzie and her husband, Roger MacKenzie, who have returned to the 20th century.
In a statement released by Starz, the TV company that airs the show, the season could also see Claire and Jamie take on the American revolution, saying: “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.”

Set to appear in season six, the character of César Domboy's Fergus Fraser and David Berry's Lord John Grey will presumably appear in the seventh season, however the fate of the entire troupe will be determined in the upcoming season.
