What is the Outlander season 7 release date? Based on the novels of the same name by Diana Gabaldon, Outlander can only really be described as a time-traveling sensation. Since releasing on Starz in 2014, viewers have been hooked on the historical series that has never failed to entertain us.
Any longtime Outlander fan will know that life is never simple for the Fraser family, and in one of the best drama series still airing, season 7 was no different. From questions surrounding Roger and Brianna’s baby to the stunning new Outlander theme song sung by the late Sinéad O’Connor.

What is Outlander season 7 about?
Outlander season 7’s plot centers on the Revolutionary War, as Jamie is pulled back into conflict. Part 2 will continue to follow Roger and Brianna in the future as Claire and Jamie face threats in the past.
Minor spoilers for season 7 ahead! In part 1, their new home is changing rapidly, and sides much be chosen. Jamie also rescued Claire from The Gallows, reuniting the entire Fraser family before they had to part ways once again due to a medical issue with Brianna’s newborn daughter.
The season is also loosely based on the book An Echo in the Bone. Although the series often deviates, as we explore in our guide on: does Jamie die in Outlander?

A full Outlander season 7 trailer was released on May 11, 2023. And a part 2 teaser was released in August 2023.
