Outlander Renewed for Eighth and Final Season: A Prequel Series is Approved by Starz!

A new age is emerging and an old one is ending. Following the anticipated extended 16-episode Season 7 premiere of the famous historical drama this summer, Starz has confirmed that Outlander will return for an eighth and final season of 10 episodes.

Fans will undoubtedly be sad to see Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) Fraser’s time-traveling adventures end. Still, Starz has given the go-ahead for the prequel series Blood Of My Blood, which will run for 10 episodes. Said Matthew B. Roberts, showrunner and executive producer:

“Outlander: Blood of My Blood is, at its heart, a love story,”

“It will explore what lengths a person will go to find love in a time when love is considered a luxury, and when marriages are made strategically, often for political or financial gain. The title is a nod to Jamie Fraser’s marriage vow to Claire and there will be several names and faces that Outlander fans will know and recognize. Jamie and Claire’s TV story may be coming to an end with season eight, but Diana is continuing on with their literary journey in her wonderful book series and is working diligently on book ten. With Jamie and Claire, and now Brian and Ellen, there is still so much more to come in the Outlander universe, and we cannot wait to continue sharing these stories with our dedicated fans.”

Said Kathryn Busby, President of Original Programming at Starz:

“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. But before we close this chapter there is plenty of their passionate story to tell over the course of 26 new episodes and even more to explore of this dynamic world and its origin story. We’re thrilled to continue to partner with Matthew, Maril, and Ronald and can’t wait to see where their alluring storytelling takes us next.”


After the network announced it was in construction in August, rumors of the new project started circulating in the summer of 2021. The movie Blood of My Blood, based on Diana Gabaldon’s book, delves into the romance between Jamie’s parents, Ellen MacKenzie and Brian Fraser.
