The hit series Outlander has been renewed for an eighth and final season by STARZ. This historical romance show is beloved by fans worldwide. The story of Claire and Jamie has spanned the reach from book to screen for decades. As one of STARZ’s most popular series to date, this announcement is huge news to viewers.
Outlander is a series that began on the pages of a book. Written by Diana Gabaldon, it has become an international bestseller. The series adaptation has been bringing the story of Claire and Jamie to the small screen for almost ten years. Spanning time and a romance that crosses centuries, Outlander covers everything from history and science fiction to adventure, all in one thrilling tale. After so much time spent with the Fraser family, loyal fans will find it hard to say goodbye.
This announcement lets fans know the end is coming but we still have a fair amount of time before we bid farewell. The seventh season, which is currently filming, has been extended to 16 action-packed episodes. Fans will get to rejoin our favorite lovebirds this summer on STARZ. Outlander’s eighth season will be ten episodes. Fans are waiting in anticipation to see where these last seasons will lead Caitriona Balfe’s Claire, and Sam Heughan’s Jamie.
STARZ also announced that they will give the green light to Outlander: Blood of My Blood. This series is a prequel that will follow the lives of Jamie’s parents and their love story. This ten-episode show is being brought to life by original Outlander executive producers Matthew B. Roberts, Ronald D. Moore, and Maril Davis. Viewers will follow Brian Fraser and Ellen MacKenzie as they contemplate their journey to romance. Blood of My Blood is set in a time where marriages of love are few and far between. How can true love prevail when matrimony is planned to bring financial and political gains? Outlander: Blood of My Blood will be available to stream on STARZ platforms in the U.S. and Canada. Viewers in the UK, Australia, Latin America, and Brazil can watch on Lionsgate+.
The end may be in sight for our beloved Outlander show, but Diana Gabaldon is currently working on the next book in her series, so there will still be new stories to come.
