As you already know, season 6 of Outlander brought eight episodes of drama featuring Claire and Jamie Fraser (Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan).
This news was confirmed back in March 2021, when Starz announced:
“We are looking forward to following the adventures of Claire and Jamie during the Revolution as well as more time travel in the upcoming season.”
We don’t exactly have a release date right now, but Deadline reports that the seventh season will be releasing by the end of 2022 or the beginning of 2023.
The original plan was for seasons 6 and 7 of Outlander to contain 12 episodes each. As a result of pandemic challenges and Caitriona Balfe’s actual pregnancy, the sixth season was cut to eight episodes. The missing four episodes will air in season 7.
