Dream not only of the past but also of the future! Here is everything we know so far about Outlander Season 7.
The end of the road is approaching faster than we anticipated for the beloved series, “Outlander.” Much to fan’s amazement, recent reports confirm that the seventh of the popular historical drama television series has already finished production in Scotland, which was surprisingly fast-paced because the upcoming extended 16-episode season hasn’t even hinted at the exact release date except Starz has confirmed the release window which will be sometime around the summer of 2023!
This season is expected to air around May to July in the same time slot of 9 p.m. ET on a weekly basis. We would like to highlight that this is just speculation at this point and will be confirmed by the network in the coming months. Moreover, the official Twitter handle of the show also shared the update among their followers with some BTS photos from the last day on the set, quoting, “These shining faces are here to tell you that filming on #Outlander Season 7 has OFFICIALLY WRAPPED!”
