When Can We Expect ‘Outlander’ Season 8?
Regrettably, Outlander Season 8, like numerous other shows, has faced delays due to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.

Season 6 Synopsis And Season 7 Preview
Amidst escalating political turmoil in the American colonies, the Frasers (Jamie and Claire) and the MacKenzies (Roger and Brianna) strive to maintain a peaceful existence on their secluded homestead nestled in the North Carolina foothills.
Jamie finds himself torn between his loyalty to the British Crown, bound by a solemn oath, and his fervent desire for freedom in this new world. Meanwhile, the Browns, as they establish a ‘committee of safety,’ pose an ongoing threat to the peace on the ridge, creating divisions among Native Americans, the British, and the Frasers.
Adding to the complexity, the arrival of the Christie family on the Ridge harkens back to Jamie’s experiences at Ardsmuir Prison and introduces new influences into the community’s harmony. Malva Christie, the daughter of Tom Christie, develops a fondness for Claire but ultimately betrays her by claiming that she is pregnant with Jamie’s child.
The season concludes with mounting unrest and tensions involving the Browns and the Christies, imperiling Jamie and Claire’s hold on Fraser’s Ridge.
The seventh season consists of 16 episodes, divided into two parts. The first part made its debut in June 2023 and follows the Frasers as they become embroiled in the events of the American Revolutionary War before eventually embarking on their journey back to Scotland. The second part is scheduled for release in 2024.
