Is Outlander Season 7 the Series Finale?

Although STARZ has officially confirmed the seventh season of Outlander, that doesn’t imply it will be the final season. The upcoming season of the popular Starz series Outlander is rumoured to adapt both the sixth novel in the series, A Breath of Snow and Ashes, and the seventh book, An Echo in the Bone, by Diana Gabaldon.

Season 6 was shorter than the others, but season 7 will include a whopping 16 episodes, giving the show plenty of time to delve into the novel’s themes and characters.

How Many Seasons Of Outlander Will There Be?

It is unknown how many seasons of Outlander there could be until STARZ officially confirms the show’s future. However, given the show’s success, assuming there is continued interest, it is possible to assume that Outlander will run for at least as many books as are already in the series.

As of this writing, Diana Gabaldon has published nine volumes in her Outlander series. As one might hope for from even the most successful book-to-series or book-to-film adaptations, the program has largely stuck to the books, if not perfectly.

And except for some developments, each season of Outlander is based on a single one of Diana’s novels. Although it is unknown how many more Outlander books Diana Gabaldon may be planning to write, the show’s creators will have plenty of room to expand the series if they adapt books 8 and 9, and possibly book 10 as well, depending on when those books are scheduled to air and be published.

Is Season 7 The Last We’ll See Of Jamie And Claire?

The love story between highland warrior Jamie Fraser and 20th-century nurse Claire Randall has been the series’ strongest point from the beginning. Their adult daughter Brianna, her husband Roger, and son Jemmy have all risen to prominence to compete with them for screen time as the series has progressed.

Meanwhile, Claire’s future looked dismal in the Outlander season 6 finale, and we were given some heartbreaking signals (and then absolute assurance) that her life would be in jeopardy in the next seventh season. Thus, this may have prompted some people to ponder their potential outcomes if Outlander Season 8 is produced.

In the season 6 finale of Outlander, Claire explains the concept of the last meal for a death row prisoner to her 18th-century husband. While Richard Brown and his Committee tried to have them forcibly removed from the residence, the pair resisted for as long as they could.

They say they’re only there to take Claire to Salisbury to stand trial for the unsolved murder of Malva Christie, but it’s obvious that Richard also wants vengeance for the death of his brother Lionel. The Committee eventually abducts the pair, and while Claire may be due a fair trial, she appears to have almost little chance of receiving one.

Stones have been thrown at her and Jamie as they traveled to Salisbury because of Richard Brown’s efforts to promote the rumor that she is a witch. Richard’s soldiers kidnap Jamie, and he takes Claire away from her loyal husband who is prepared to face the gallows as the Committee prepares to take them to Wilmington.

When they get to Wilmington, Richard makes an oath to the nurse that he will watch her die, further implying that Claire will have a tough time convincing others that she is innocent. The film ends with Jamie being rescued from his captors, who were planning to return him to Scotland, and him riding out with his supporters, including Young Ian, in an effort to find and rescue his wife.

This Outlander conclusion, nevertheless, implies that Claire has a lot of trouble ahead of her. Jamie and Claire are the original Outlander power couple, so it’s doubtful that we won’t see them again in season 8 if there is one. The remaining novels in the series still very much revolve upon Claire and Jamie, even though the program doesn’t precisely follow every part of the storyline of author Diana Gabaldon’s books.

Claire is worried about how her new husband, Lord John Grey, will react when he learns that she has remarried Jamie, who allegedly returned from the dead in book 8 of the series, Written In My Own Heart’s Blood.

Fans who haven’t read the books may have to endure a torturous wait to find out what happens to Jamie after Season 7 if Outlander gets renewed for a Season 8. Some fans will always hold out hope that Outlander will be renewed for multiple more seasons so that all of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander novels may be adapted.
