Here’s everything you need to know about Outlander Season 7.
Is Outlander Season 7 coming to Starz in June?
No, Outlander Season 7 won’t be arriving in June as there is no official release date announced by the makers as of now. In March 2021, even before Season 6 began airing, Starz announced that it had picked up Season 7 from executive producer Ronald D. Moore and Sony Pictures Television. It will be based on the seventh book in the Outlander series, An Echo in the Bone. Apart from this, not much is revealed about Outlander Season 7.
Outlander Season 7 Potential Release date
As of May 29, there is no official release date for Outlander Season 7. Production for the upcoming season began in late March 2022. In late April, star Caitriona Balfe told Glamour that filming on the new season has “been really good”. “We’re almost finished with the first block of episodes, but it’s been really fun,” Balfe said.

The upcoming season will be much bigger than the previous ones. So, the production and post-production activities will take some time to complete. We expect the series to arrive sometime in early 2023. Given its massive production and edit, anything before 2023 would be highly unlikely.
Check out the trailer of Season 6 if you haven’t watched the series yet:
Outlander Season 7 Plot
Season 6 ended with some big cliffhangers that will be answered in the seventh installment. Claire is imprisoned in Wilmington and there’s a possibility that she will be put on trial for the murder of Tom Christie’s daughter, Malva, and would be sentenced to death if found guilty. Jamie has been rescued from Richard Brown’s Committee of Safety and now, he, along with Young Ian and John Quincy Myers, is on the way to rescue her.
The seventh season will also tell us about the killer of Malva and what is the importance of the reappearance of time traveler Wendigo Donner. There will be more dangers to the Fraser family as we saw in the finale of Season 6, Claire arriving in Wilmington grows some unrest and they will be a revolutionary war as the trial for Claire comes closer.
Outlander Season 7 Cast
The main characters will most probably be back for another season, including:
Caitriona Balfe as Claire Fraser
Sam Heughan as Jamie Fraser
Richard Rankin as Roger Mackenzie
Sophie Skelton as Brianna Mackenzie
In order to find out who all will be gracing the new season, we will need to wait for an official announcement from the makers.
