The Plot of Outlander Season 7
The trailer shows Jamie and Young Ian (John Bell) immediately thrust into action to start the season as they try to rescue Claire from the gallows. However, the geopolitical firestorm of the Revolutionary War makes things more difficult. Jamie and Claire find themselves caught in a historic battle for the soul of the nation, standing against the Crown and defending their home.
Despite the thrilling battles that unfold, Outlander, at its heart, is still about the enduring love between Jamie and Claire. Season 7 will see them leave their home to do what they think is right. Decisions will have to be made along the way that could drive the family apart, but the trailer ensures nothing could come between the two leads. Jamie even faces the harsh reality that he might not survive the war, entrusting Claire with a pendant to ensure a part of him will be with her forever.
The Characters of Outlander Season 7
Jamie’s illegitimate son, William Ransom (played by newcomer Charles Vandervaart), is on the other side of the war. Although Jamie wishes not to point a gun at his own blood, there’s nothing that could sway him from standing up for their home.
Returning stars include David Berry, Caitlin O’Ryan, Paul Gorman, Graham McTavish, Nell Hudson, Steven Cree, Andrew Whipp, Layla Burns, and Lotte Verbeek. They are joined by new cast members Izzy Meikle-Small, Joey Phillips, Gloria Obianyo, Rod Hallett, Chris Fulton, Diarmaid Murtagh, and Kristin Atherton.
Outlander: Blood of My Blood
Outlander is based on the series of novels penned by Diana Gabaldon, with Season 7 specifically adapting An Echo in the Bone. While there’s only one season left to wrap up this story of romance beyond time, Starz has also ordered the prequel series Outlander: Blood of My Blood to tell the story of Jamie’s parents.
