Starz just announced that Outlander Season 8 will happen!! Fantastic news, and sadly, Starz says that Season 8 will be the final season.

Will it really be the last season? One never knows for sure until the time comes, but at least we know we’ll get MOBY! Will the last scene be Bree, Roger and the kids coming back to the Ridge, as in the book? Or will they somehow condense the last two books (one of which is not even written yet), into a final, maybe extended Season 8? Time will tell. It would be nice to see the full story completed.
As to when filming for Season 8 will start, hmmm, maybe in January of 2024? That’s not time enough for DG to finish Book 10, but she has known how the story ends for sometime now, so she could consult on that. Ahh, the mystery.
For now, the cast is back at work filming the last 4 episodes for Season 7, which will be released sometime in mid to late Summer 2023, according to a recent interview with Sam.
**Update (thank you Jill Rosoff), According to Variety, Season 8 will be ten episodes in length. I’m guessing that was a concession to retain the leads, since this will be a total of over twelve years of their lives invested, by the time Season 8 airs. With a shorter Season 8, maybe there will end up being a greater chance for a Season 9? 😄 Eternal optimist here. (link to article below)
The Variety article also mentions the official green-lighting of the Outlander Prequel, Blood of My Blood, which is the Ellen and Brian Fraser story. For more on that, go to
