Starz announced that season 7 of Outlander is being filmed in Scotland. It’s been nearly seven months since the finale of season 6 of Outlander was released, and fans of the show are hoping they won’t have long to wait for more of Claire and Jamie’s adventures.
Following former Second World War military nurse Claire Randall who travels back from 1945 to 1743, where she encounters, falls in love with, and marries Highland warrior Jamie Fraser – has made massive stars of Sam Heughan and Caitríona Balfe.
There are already 75 episodes of the series, based on the bestselling novels by American author Diana Gabaldon. However, the last series had to be curtailed to just eight episodes due to the global pandemic.
The last time we saw the couple, they struggled with tremendous unrest as Jamie and Claire’s grip on Fraser’s Ridge became ever more fragile.
Now millions of Outlander obsessives are on tenterhooks waiting for the imminent announcement of when season seven will arrive – bringing an end to the ‘Droughtlander.’
