The seventh season is being made based on a book titled, “An Echo in the Bone,” which is the seventh book in the Outlander series of novels by Diana Gabaldon. The book follows the adventures of Claire and Jamie Fraser continue in America during the Revolution, joined variously by their nephew Ian Murray, longtime friend Lord John Grey, and Jamie’s illegitimate son, William Ransom.
The plot also follows Jamie and Claire’s daughter Brianna and her husband Roger MacKenzie, who have finally managed to return to the 20th century with their two young children, Jeremiah and Mandy. “One of the many joys of our epic story is the element of time travel which allows us to revisit some of our favorite characters in different times and places, and we’re thrilled to welcome back so many familiar faces for season seven,” said Matthew B. Roberts, showrunner, writer and executive producer, in a statement. “In addition to our returning cast, we’re also excited to welcome several new actors to the Outlander family and cannot wait to introduce them to fans in our extended season.”

The sixth season of “Outlander” sees a continuation of Claire and Jamie’s fight to protect those they love as they navigate the trials and tribulations of life in colonial America. The Frasers (Jamie, Claire, Brianna, and Roger) try to live peacefully on their isolated homestead in the North Carolina foothills as political unrest in the colonies erupts. Jamie is suddenly forced to choose between his loyalty to the oath he took to the British crown and his hope for freedom in the new world.
Trouble continues with the Browns, who form a “safety committee” that threatens the peace on the ridge, dividing the native American Indians, the British, and the Frasers. Meanwhile, the Christies arrive on the Ridge, a throwback to Jamie’s time in Ardsmuir Prison, and begin to influence the town. Malva Christie, Tom Christie’s daughter, develops feelings for Claire, only to betray her by announcing her pregnancy with Jamie as the father. As Jamie and Claire’s grip on Fraser’s Ridge becomes increasingly tenuous, the season concludes with a great deal of unrest involving the Browns and the Christies.
