Fans are getting impatient (and we understand them). Since the release of season 6, in March 2022, they have been waiting for the sequel with a firm footing. And very good news since this Thursday, March 23, a release date has been set. Season 7 will begin on June 16 on Starz, across the Atlantic. “Ready for summer at Fraser Ridge?” “, can we read on the official Instagram account of the series. To illustrate this pleasing announcement, the American channel also shared a handful of unpublished photos. The opportunity to find our favorite actors in their costumes, like Caitriona Balfe (Claire Fraser), Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser), Richard Rankin (Roger MacKenzie), Sophie Skelton (Brianna MacKenzie) or even John Bell (Ian , young). It remains to be seen whether the episodes will then be broadcast in France, on Netflix, as for the previous versions.
“Outlander”, a hit series
Nevertheless, let the fans prepare, since this news is unfortunately accompanied by a less good one… Composed this time of 16 episodes, season 7 will be divided into two parts of eight episodes. If the first will be visible from mid-June, it will be necessary to arm yourself with (a lot) of patience to savor the last. Indeed, the second half will not be broadcast until 2024… This new handful of episodes will be based on volume 7 of Diana Gabaldon’s novels, “An Echo in the Bone”.
As a consolation, we remember that an eighth season has already been ordered. And that a prequel centered on the parents of Jamie Fraser, entitled “Outlander: Blood of My Blood”, is also in the pipes.
