Outlander fans have endured a long wait for season six with filming put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, at the start of 2021, the cast and crew returned to Scotland to begin working on the Starz series. Ahead of confirmation it would continue for a seventh season, actor Sam Heughan detailed his hopes for Jamie and Claire’s (played by Caitriona Balfe) future.
He shared: “We’re shooting season six. And hopefully, there’ll be some news soon, about next season – a possible next season.
“So we’ll see about that. But yeah, I don’t know.,” he continued to Esquire.
“I think as long as people enjoy it, and we enjoy making it then yeah, long may it live.”
Fortunately fans didn’t have too long to wait for news of another season.
Warning: The following article contains potential spoilers for Outlander season six and seven.
Showrunner Matthew B Roberts confirmed: “We are so excited Starz has given us the opportunity to continue the epic Outlander journey.
“We can’t wait to get into the writers’ room and start breaking Echo in the Bone and look forward to giving the fans another season of this exhilarating story.”
Starz went on to confirm that series regulars Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan, Sophie Skelton and Richard Rankin will return for the seventh outing.
Fans of the novels by Diana Gabaldon will know An Echo in the Bone is the seventh book in the series.
An Echo in the Bone sees Roger Mackenzie (Richard Rankin) and his wife Brianna Fraser (Sophie Skelton) return to the 20th Century while Claire and Jamie remain in the past.
The pair return to the present day with their children – Jemmy will have a sibling – and encounter another time traveller.
Meanwhile, back in North America, Claire, Jamie and his son William become caught up in the Revolutionary War with shocking consequences.
Going by the events which take place in the novel, fans should brace themselves for two major deaths, a presumed death, new characters and a surprise Lord John Grey (David Berry) twist.

Sam has previously hinted the sixth season could feature events from An Echo in the Bone in a similar way season five drew on the events in A Breath of Snow and Ashes.
Speaking to Parade, Sam teased: “Actually, if I could tell you, I can’t because I haven’t seen all the script.
“I would say because we have so much history and time travel and all that, we can pull from any book.
“So there may be not just book seven but other books we pull from.”
Fans were thrilled with the news of a seventh season with many sharing their excitement on Twitter.
“Nothing like that! You should celebrate and a lot. Both the return of this season and the renewal of the next. You deserve!” one fan posted.
Another added: “Thank you to all of you who make this show possible!! Outlander is a masterpiece and is a pleasure to watch! In these pandemic times I was watching it again and you have no idea how good it is to have something positive in the midst of so much bad.”
A third tweeted: “Break out the bagpipes for Season 7!! Thank you so much to you and @caitrionambalfe and everyone else who’s coming back to the best, most addictive TV show ever. Listen closely and you’ll hear the sound of millions of us cheering over this news.”
