7th drama season approved ahead of the 6th season debut.
Good news for fans of Outlander with a 7th season approved ahead of the 6th season debut.
Season 7 of the popular series will be based on the seventh book in Diana Gabaldon’s book series, “An Echo in the Bone.” It will comprise 12 episodes.
Season 6, which was supposed to begin last year but was delayed due to the pandemic, is currently in production. It stars Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan, Sophie Skelton and Richard Rankin and has previously featured Aussie David Berry.
“Starz is committed to investing in unapologetic, bold premium storytelling that amplifies diverse voices and shines a spotlight on women in front of and behind the camera through our #TakeTheLead initiative,” said Christina Davis, president of original programming for Starz. “The hit series Outlander embodies everything about our initiative including a powerful female lead character and an amazing team of storytellers. We look forward to following the adventures of Claire and Jamie in America during the Revolution as well as more time travel during this next season.”
“We are so excited Starz has given us the opportunity to continue the epic Outlander journey,” said Roberts. “We can’t wait to get into the writer’s room and start breaking Echo in the Bone and look forward to giving the fans another season of this exhilarating story.”
Outlander screens in Australia on FOX One and SBS.
