Sam Heughan, who plays Outlander, hinted that he will be returning to work on the eighth and final season of the Starz series, which means the show is almost over.
The actor posted a photo of himself on Instagram showing a sign that said, “Welcome to Outlander,” as he returned to work. He hinted at his motivation to share by adding the caption, “@outlander_starz Season 8…,” along with the term “prep.” Two emojis, a teary-eyed face and two excited hands, were sent with the tease.
As fans are aware, prior of Season 7’s June Starz launch, Outlander was renewed for an eighth and final season in January 2023. Part 1 ended in August, and Part 2 is scheduled to premiere in 2024 (the precise date is yet to be confirmed).
Since Season 7’s second half has already been completed, strikes won’t cause it to be delayed, and given Starz’s release schedule, it doesn’t appear that any fans will have to endure a protracted Droughtlander while they wait for Season 8. It’s improbable that Season 8 episodes will air before 2025, but only time will tell. Filming an epic series like this takes a long time.
Though the season’s release signals the beginning of the end for the expansive romantic fantasy drama centered around Heughan’s Jamie Fraser and Caitriona Balfe’s Claire, fans are unlikely to lament the wait. Their time-traveling romance began in Season 1 when Claire, a military nurse in World War II, was transported back in time and met Jamie, an 18th-century Highlander warrior.
Outlander, a television series based on Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling book series, debuted in 2014 and has since gone on to become an international sensation. Starz has already placed an order for Outlander: Blood of My Blood, a spinoff of the television show. The romance between Jamie’s parents, Ellen and Brian, would be the subject of the prequel. Watch this space for updates on the upcoming return of Outlander and the conclusion of its current season.
