Outlander is heading for a break before the seventh season officially ends. If you’ve been meaning to catch up on or dive into the historical drama, it’s a great time to binge older episodes before you watch the mid-season finale premiering on Starz on Friday (Aug. 11).
The season comes with good news and bad news for Outlander fans. The good news: The hit series starring Caitríona Balfe and Sam Heughan has already been renewed for an eighth season, Starz announced in January. The bad news: The show’s eighth season will be its last.
“For nearly a decade Outlander has won the hearts of audiences worldwide and we’re pleased to bring Claire and Jamie’s epic love story to a proper conclusion,” Kathryn Busby, president of original programming for Starz said at the time, per Variety. “But before we close this chapter there is plenty of their passionate story to tell over the course of 26 new episodes and even more to explore of this dynamic world and its origin story. We’re thrilled to continue to partner with Matthew, Maril and Ronald and can’t wait to see where their alluring storytelling takes us next.”
Luckily, fans don’t have to say goodbye just yet. In addition to announcing the end of Outlander, Starz greenlit a 10-episode prequel series, Outlander: Blood of My Blood, which will center around Jamie’s (Heughan) parents.
The cast of Outlander includes Sophie Skelton, Richard Rankin, Caitlyn O’Ryan, Simon R. Baker, Mark Lewis Jones and Glen Gould.
Season six premiered on Starz in March 2022 after being delayed for two years because of the pandemic. Season seven, which premiered on June 16, includes 16 episodes and will feature returning characters along with new additions to the cast.
