Outlander Season 7: Filming begins for new season in Scotland with Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe
Filming has officially started for Outlander Season 7 starring Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe.
Outlander Season 6 might be over, but Outlander Season 7 has officially started production! Cast have already been spotted filming around Scotland – with Sam Heughan seen in full Jamie Fraser costume at Burntisland’s East Dock.
Fans of the time-travelling fantasy show have also been treated to behind the scenes photos of the cast on set for the next season.
Posting on social media, Outlander Starz wrote: “As we devour Season 6, they're already cooking up Season 7! The cast and crew are back at it - #Outlander Season 7 is in production!”
The show shared a photo of Caitriona Balfe (Claire Fraser), Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser), Sophie Skelton (Brianna) and Richard Rankin (Roger) in their Fraser’s Ridge costumes.
Lead actress Caitriona Balfe said: “Here we go …. Season 7!!!!!! What????? Hard to imagine what we thought might be one season in 2013 is still going and we have all you amazing fans to thank!!!!!” And Sam Heughan wrote: “Wait!!! Is that @Outlander_STARZ season…. 7!?!?!? yazzz”.
What do we know about Outlander Season 7? Does it have a release date?
The next Outlander season doesn’t have an official release date yet, but it’s hoped it will be in spring 2023. It will be more than twice the length of Outlander Season 6 – with a “supersized” 16 episode run.
Based on the seventh book by Diana Gabaldon, An Echo in The Bone, it will focus on the struggles of Claire and Jamie amid the American Revolution. There have also been rumours the seventh season of Outlander could be the last.
Caitriona Balfe has previously said it could be a “nice kind of time frame” to end the show when it reaches its 10-year mark in 2024. But she said: “Those decisions are far above my pay grade.”
