After several seasons dotted with the embers of rebellion, the American Revolution has at last erupted into a raging fire, rapidly approaching the Frasers’ doorstep. The hit Starz series plunges the Fraser clan and viewers into war for their seventh season, supersized at 16 episodes.
Premiering June 16, season 7 will be divided into two parts, with the back-half of the episodes not airing until 2024. This follows an abbreviated season 6, which clocked in at eight episodes and left Claire (Caitriona Balfe) on her way to prison for the murder of Malva Christie (Jessica Reynolds).
“We’ve left her in this prison,” says Balfe. “Her future is very precarious. We don’t really know what’s going to happen. All we know is that the normal systems of law have broken down.” It’s a startling cliffhanger, even by Outlander standards, though it was not the intended ending of season 6, which was cut short due to Balfe’s pregnancy and COVID delays.
