Outlander Season 7 Filming Status

The filming of Outlander Season 7 started long before Season 6 wrapped up airing. That was evident by the tweet that was posted on the official Twitter handle of Outlander as the filming was on in initial April 2022 and the airing wrapped up in May 2022. 

Will Outlander Season 7 come to Starz in May 2022?

Unfortunately, Outlander Season 7 won’t be coming to Starz in May 2022.

Keeping into account the current status of production and the estimated time taken by post-production procedures, we can expect Outlander Season 7 to hit the screens sometime in the first quarter of the year 2023. However, no official announcements have been made yet.

Outlander Season 7 Plot

As per Diana Gabaldon’s website, Outlander Season 7 is:

“Set in America, London, Canada, and Scotland. The book’s cover image reflects the internal shape of the novel: a caltrop. That’s an ancient military weapon that looks like a child’s jack with sharp points; the Romans used them to deter elephants, and the Highway Patrol still uses them to stop fleeing perps in cars. This book has four significant storylines: Jamie and Claire; Roger and Brianna (and family); Lord John and William; and Young Ian, all intersecting in the nexus of the American Revolution—and all of them with sharp points. (1777-1778/1972)”

As per the information released earlier, the upcoming season of the series is based on Diana Gabaldon’s novel series Echo in the Bone.
