Dream not only of the past but also of the future. Here is everything we know about Outlander Season 7. 

Christmas has come early this year with a brand new Outlander Season 7 teaser trailer! A few hours ago, Starz released a new teaser of 49 seconds which showcases that the seventh season delves into the life of Claire and Jaime, who are still making their way through the New World. Outlander’s seventh season will pick up after the events of the Season 6 finale, which saw Claire (Caitriona Balfe) arrested by Richard Brown (Chris Larkin) for the murder of Malva Christie (Jessica Reynolds) and for being a witch.

One of the crucial questions is, “Can fans envision a situation in which Claire and Jamie both travel to the present?” As, the residents of Fraser’s Landing, led by Malva’s father Tom (Mark Lewis Jones), are of the opinion that Claire killed Malva as a result of the decedent’s claims that Jamie impregnated her while they were having a sensual relationship. Despite the fact that Malva and Jamie were not involved, the former was hooking up with other local young men, a fact that Claire chose not to disclose in public for whatever reason. Take a look at the new teaser below:

Fans who have seen the teaser are also loving the voice-over between Claire and Jamie which is quite sweet, as is to be expected from the Frasers, quoting, “I had a dream, there was light all around you,” Jamie tells Claire in the video. “It wasn’t a candlelight or a firelight. And I thought, ‘Now, that must be what electric light is like.'” Claire replies, “But how can you recognize something you’ve never seen in real life?” He adds, “I dream of the past, why would I not dream of the future?”

We also noticed that in this season, as Claire gets ready for trial, things seem quite bleak. In a teaser clip, Claire is seen getting fitted for a noose before being prodded forward to suggest that she might die. Fans will undoubtedly be anxiously awaiting how everything will turn out in the upcoming season, but it’s important to remember that both Claire and Jamie have previously managed to escape even stickier predicaments. So we can only hope for the best that everything turns out as usual in the end.

We know that Outlander Season 7 was announced back on March 14, 2021.

Additionally, the production for season seven began in April 2022, while filming began in May 2022 in Scotland. On the other hand, it is expected that the new episodes will premiere 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 in time and will be confirmed by the network in the coming months. When available to stream, Outlander Season 7, along with all the previous seasons, will be available to stream on STARZ and the STARZ app, with new episodes, most likely premiering on Sunday nights. Moreover, the previous seasons can currently be viewed on Amazon, the STARZ app, Netflix, and Hulu, depending on the region you live in and the membership plan you choose, so you can explore the vast catalog of the streaming service. 

Outlander Season 7: What to expect in the new season?

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 has finally managed to return to the 20th century with their two young children, Jeremiah and Mandy.

Season 7 will be super-sized and will feature 16 episodes. On the other hand, “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.”
