Outlander Season seven: Plot, cast, release date, where to watch


Could this be Jamie and Claire’s biggest challenge yet?

The seventh season of the hit “romantic odyssey” Outlander is gearing up for a major return with our favourite on-screen lovers Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) and Claire Fraser (Caitriona Balfe).

But after Season six left fans on a massive cliff hanger, we are left with a thousand questions: what book will the series follow? Is Season seven the end of Outlander? Who are the cast? When does it release?

Well, we had the same questions.

As a refresher, in the last season the American Colonies were ready for battle. But Claire and Jamie had a more important concern, the murder charge against the sassenach.

Malva Christie, the young woman who falsely claimed to be carrying Jamie’s baby was murdered. Giving Richard Brown and his Committee of Safety the opportunity to arrest and blame Claire for the crime.

But then again, what is a murder charge in comparison to a revolution…

What is the plot for Outlander Season seven?

The official trailer for Season seven opens with Claire singing Ave Marie while walking in a funeral procession. A haunting song with a daunting scene gives a glimpse into how emotionally heartbreaking this season of Outlander will be.

The American Revolution is the theme for the 2023 trailer as Jamie charges into battle and even a distressed Claire is seen holding a sword.

But Jamie seems to be fighting his own internal war, duty to his country or his family. His now grown-up son William Ransom is none other but a Redcoat, who he may have to fight against.

“Made a promise to myself – I would never face my son across the barrel of a gun,” Jamie said in the trailer.

Meanwhile, Brianna Randall who was revealed to be pregnant with Roger Wakefield in Season six, appears to be giving birth.

When is Outlander Season seven out?

Unlike what the production team have done before, Outlander Season seven will be split into two parts. Outlander part one will air in Australia on Saturday June 17, 2023, and each episode will air in weekly instalments.

Outlander part two however, won’t arrive until sometime in 2024. The official premiere date is yet to be confirmed.

It is believed the new season will feature 16 episodes overall. But Starz announced Outlander would come to an end with a 10-episode Season eight.

What book does Outlander Season seven follow?

Season six ended with some big cliffhangers due to COVID which caused production delays. Now, Season seven will make up those differences by following the novel, A Breath of Snow and Ashes.
