The Final Season of Outlander: All the Information We Have So Far

Part two of the massive season seven will premiere later this year after a prolonged Droughtlander owing to the COVID-19 epidemic and a shorter Outlander season six. Some fans already anticipate season eight. This is what we know.

The show ends with season eight. One more season was confirmed by Starz in January 2023. “For nearly a decade, ‘Outlander’ has won the hearts of audiences worldwide, and we’re pleased to bring Claire and Jamie’s epic love story to a proper conclusion,” said STARZ President.

But before we conclude this chapter, 26 more episodes will recount their impassioned story and reveal more about this vibrant universe and its beginnings. We're excited to work with Matthew, Maril, and Ronald again and see where their captivating storytelling takes us.” There are 26 new episodes—16 for season seven and 10 for season eight.

This is a departure from prior show length discussions. According to executive producer Maril Davis, "We'll keep making this until Claire and Jamie are 100. Really, we will. Many more novels remain. We'll continue if Starz, Sony, and the performers are agreeable."

Before learning the show was extended for an eighth season, they had begun filming season seven, thinking it was the last. "We broke season seven before learning about season eight. Due of uncertainty, we had to approach season seven as our last. That made us wonder, 'What material do we have left?'

The executive producer told Town & Country, "We thought it would be our last." "We learned we were getting season eight midway through filming season seven. We changed season seven's ending, which we'll address later. We went into season thinking this was it, but it changed."

Soon, filming will begin. "That’s a WRAP!!! 🙌" declared actor Sam Heughan on Instagram. A year of Outlander, 220 shooting days. We extend our gratitude to our dedicated team and exceptional fans. We can't wait for season 8."

This was likely an error, as his co-star Caitriona Balfe later confirmed that filming will begin on the eighth and final season in 2023. "We're about to start shooting, in a few months, our eighth season but our seventh season is starting to air on June 16th," stated. This was delayed by the writer's strike.

When Outlander: Blood of my Blood began filming in February 2024, Starz announced that the "10-episode eighth season... will begin production shortly in Scotland."
