Outlander Season 7: We Finally Know When Part 2 Will Air, and Fans Have Their Say

Spread the love

Since season seven, part one, the finale of Outlander aired in August 2023, fans have been eagerly anticipating the show’s return. At the time, we were only told that part two of the super-sized 16-episode seventh season, consisting of eight episodes, will run “sometime in 2024.” We now know when that “sometime” is, but fans are split on the news.




Outlander’s social media pages announced on Thursday, March 21, 2024, that “Outlander officially returns this November.” It’s exciting, but it also means there will be a 15-month gap between season seven’s parts one and two. (Season eight, the final season, is now filming in Scotland and will most likely not broadcast until late 2025, especially with this news.)

“November for 7b?!” wrote Instagram user @vicki_lynne120 after hearing the news. “That is so disappointing. To promote a super-sized S7 and then give us the second half 15 months later.”

Instagram user @elizabethdonas concurred, adding, “Well over a year since the first half isn’t a ‘half,’ it’s a different season!”. And @ellieandfig commented, “Like this is an early April fool’s joke, right?”

@kevrosehome commented, “Y’all have been complaining to these poor hardworking people for months about not having a release date and now you finally get that release date and you’re complaining about it…”Why don’t we simply rejoice in the fact that we’ll be getting new episodes and finally know when? Yay.”




Yes, it’s excellent news, but it’s also quite the Droughtlander, especially for those who hoped for a much faster return. (To be fair, I did too).

There’s not much else we know at this point, but Starz has released many fresh behind-the-scenes photographs from Part 2, which you can see below. And we’ll keep this site updated as soon as new information is available. The first half of Outlander’s seventh season wraps up on Friday, August 11. And based on what transpired in the penultimate episode, a lot will change between 1777 and 1980. In the midseason finale, “Turning Points,” Jamie (Sam Heughan) fights in the important Second Battle of Saratoga; in the 20th century, Roger (Richard Rankin) and Brianna (Sophie Skelton) seek Jemmy, who has been kidnapped by Bree’s coworker Rob Cameron.




“The realization that Jem is missing and what Bree and Roger are going to do about it will come to a head,” says executive producer Maril Davis to Glamour. “They, like Jamie and Claire (Caitríona Balfe), are at a turning point.” Obviously, that is the title of the episode.”

Speaking of Jamie, Davis says his greatest fear is seeing William across enemy lines, and he is torn between fighting for his daughter in the America she will know and not wanting to see his son through the barrel of a rifle. “In this episode, we’re going to potentially see that come to fruition,” she continues.




But the last time we saw Jamie, he was unconscious on the ground. We know he can’t be dead, but it’s unclear how serious his injuries are. “He’s going to make it, let’s put it that way,” Davis laughs. “Listen, Claire can always sew that guy together. He has nine lives. I think he’ll be okay.”

Of course, things are far from normal in 1980, when Jem has gone missing, and Roger, Bree, and Buck believe he has traveled back through the stones with Rob Cameron. Davis is tight-lipped about what’s in store, but he does promise more scenes and adventures with Roger and Buck.

“When we were approaching this season, we went to Graham McTavish and asked him if he could play this character again because he played it previously,” Davis said. “But Graham is so busy that he didn’t have time, even though he wanted to. You’re always worried when you recast a character, but Diarmaid Murtagh has stepped in and taken this role in unexpected directions. What we’ll see in the second half is sort of like a buddy drama between Roger and Buck, which I enjoy.”




Davis admits that she was anxious at the start of the season that Murtagh’s Buck was too endearing, but she is no longer concerned. “There are some things, surely, you were questioning his motives,” she said. “On the other side, as a fan, I’m absolutely rooting for him. I liked how angry Roger was at first. But this is his blood, his family. So I love that dynamic between them, and we’ll see it play out in the second half, the conflict between what Roger knows, what he can share with Buck, and what he can’t.

And on that note, we can’t say much more without giving away too many plot lines, so come back Friday for our Outlander recap, where Davis answers your most pressing questions about the episode.

Original posting (July 12, 2023): In the fourth episode of Outlander’s seventh season (titled “A Most Uncomfortable Woman”), Roger and Bree have officially purchased Lallybroch, Jemmy and Mandy have outgrown diapers, and Bree has a new job. However, in 1776, Jamie was tricked into fighting for the colonists, so returning to Scotland is out of the question. Jamie realizes he has to stay and fight for Claire, Ian, Bree, and the little ones.




It doesn’t matter that he’s in his late fifties. We’re talking about Jamie Fraser!”This is Jamie Fraser, of course, he is going to lead from the front,” Sam Heughan tells Glamour. “Look, he is the man of action. Definitely. Maybe you’ll notice when he fights that it takes a toll on him, and he can’t keep up the entire time. But it’s also excellent for me. “He has a responsibility this season.”

Outlander

Boy, does he ever. At the end of the episode, Jamie and Claire arrive at Fort Ticonderoga, where they will face King George III’s army (later known as the British), and the long-awaited Revolutionary War will begin. Outlander’s fifth episode, “Singapore,” marks the beginning of a new chapter in the series’ history. To commemorate the occasion, Glamour has released an exclusive clip from the episode with Jamie and Claire, in which Jamie expresses his fears about how to defend against the British and the extent they will have to go to protect themselves and their houses. Take a peek.




If you, like me, use subtitles to understand the accents on this show, here’s what Jamie said: “The British are running out of food and horses. If they do not have adequate supplies, they will be unable to surround us and await our submission. They had to take the fort by force. And I guess I’ll erect a gun on Sugarloaf Hill. Fermoy is not very responsive to his subordinates’ concerns. He’s a very proud man who says they won’t make it up there, but

I understand how a Highlander thinks. If there is a high point to take, Simon Fraser will find a way. Fermoy has the general’s ear, so I need to persuade him. Going around him would be a poor idea; it could endanger my soldiers. However, he is confident that an invasion will come from land rather than over the water.

Original Post: In March 2021, a full year before season six of Outlander premiered, Starz announced that it had signed up for season seven from executive producer Ronald D. Moore and Sony Pictures Television. Since then, we’ve returned to Fraser’s Ridge, and a lot has happened:

Claire struggled with the aftermath of sexual assault, Bree and Roger embarked on a new future as their family grew, the Christies came to town, what really happened during young Ian’s last few years was revealed, Jamie came to terms with the upcoming revolution, and everything fell apart with Malva’s claim that Jamie had fathered her unborn child, which led to Claire being wrongfully accused and arrested




Yes, a lot happened. However, the season—particularly the finale, which aired on May 1, 2022 (doesn’t that seem like a lifetime ago?)—was one of the most astounding of the series.

Now that season six is done, supporters are eagerly looking forward to a bigger season seven. It’s double the number of episodes in season six, which was cut short owing to star Caitriona Balfe’s pregnancy and pandemic-related scheduling conflicts. And we now know when it will premiere: Friday, June 16, 2023.

Also, as several fans predicted, season seven will be broken into two halves, with the first eight episodes premiering in June and the remaining eight airing somewhere in 2024. (Starz hasn’t provided any additional information regarding those episodes). Everything you need to know about when you can start watching on June 16 is mentioned below.




The conflict we knew was coming has finally arrived, and loyalties will be tested. According to Starz’s official synopsis, “Season seven picks up from the harrowing events of the end of season six, with Jamie and Young Ian racing to save Claire before she is tried and wrongfully convicted for the murder of Malva Christie.” However, their aim is hindered by the outbreak of a geopolitical firestorm: the American Revolution has come. In the seventh season of Outlander, Jamie, Claire, and their family witness the horrific birth pains of a new nation as armies march to war and British institutions fail in the face of armed insurrection.

“The Frasers’ homeland is changing, and they must adapt to it. To safeguard what they have built, the Frasers must traverse the risks of the Revolutionary War. They understand that sometimes leaving what they love is necessary to defend it. As the battle drives them out of North Carolina and into the heart of the fight for independence, Jamie, Claire, Brianna, and Roger face hard choices that threaten to rip their family apart.”




Meanwhile, on June 1 (World Outlander Day), Starz debuted the first two clips from the new season. Balfe and executive producer Maril Davis celebrated with fans by participating in a Women of Outlander panel at Austin’s annual ATX TV Festival, where the snippets were released during a debate. Take a peek.
