With the Frasers return to Scotland in Part 2 of Outlander Season 7, will there be any familiar faces returning?

That's a definite yes... sort of! Jamie's sister Jenny Murray is returning but the role has been recast. Laura Donnelly, who previously played the part, wasn't available due to scheduling conflicts, so Kristin Atherton will now be playing the role.

Also returning -- which indicates some time travel involved as some of these characters are now dead -- will be Geillis Duncan (Lotte Verbeek), Brian Fraser (Andrew Whipp), Dougal MacKenzie (Graham McTavish), Ian Murray (Steven Cree), Joan MacKimmie (Layla Burns) and Laoghaire Fraser (Nell Hudson).

"One of the many joys of our epic story is the element of time travel, which allows us to revisit some of our favorite characters in different times and places, and we're thrilled to welcome back so many familiar faces for season seven," showrunner Matthew B. Roberts told TVLine.

What happened in Outlander Season 7 Part 1?

Part 1 was based on the seventh novel in Gabaldon’s series of books, titled An Echo in the Bone. This synopsis was released by STARZ: 

Following the harrowing events of Season 6, Jamie and Young Ian race to rescue Claire before she’s tried and wrongfully convicted for the murder of Malva Christie. But their mission is complicated by the beginning of a geopolitical firestorm: The American Revolution has arrived. In the seventh season of Outlander, Jamie, Claire, and their family are caught in the violent birth pains of an emerging nation as armies march to war and British institutions crumble in the face of armed rebellion.

The land the Frasers call home is changing – and they must change with it. In order to protect what they’ve built, the Frasers have to navigate the perils of the Revolutionary War. They learn that sometimes to defend what you love, you have to leave it behind. As the conflict draws them out of North Carolina and into the heart of this fight for independence, Jamie, Claire, Brianna, and Roger are faced with impossible decisions that have the potential to tear their family apart.

Are there any Outlander spoilers for Season 7 Part 2?

Outlander season 7 part 2 will continue the events from Gabaldon's seventh book, An Echo in the Bone, that weren't covered in the first half of the season and then continue on to the eighth book, Written in My Own Blood.

What that means is that Jamie, Claire and Young Ian have left the American Revolutionary War behind and returned to Scotland, where after delivering Jamie's cousin Simon’s (Angus MacFadyen) body, they will visit Lallybrach.

Then, in the 20th century Roger and Bree discovered Rob Cameron kidnapped their son, Jemmy. They think that Rob has taken him through the stones to the 18th century in order to help him find the hidden Jacobite gold near Fraser's Ridge, so look for some time travel as Roger follows them into the past.

Other issues to be dealt with: Will William discover that Jamie is his biological father and what will that mean? Will we see the return of Arch Bug (Hugh Ross) who vowed to punish Young Ian for killing his wife? And who will win Rachel's affections -- Young Ian or William Ransom?

"The second half is even more exciting – it's like the second half does not give you time to breathe," executive producer Maril Davis told Digital Spy. "There are so many ups and down for everyone and so many life moments. I can't even put it into words – the second half is going to be even crazier than the first."

Where can I watch and stream Outlander Season 7 on TV and online?

When it premieres, part 2 of Outlander season 7 will air exclusively on STARZ and the STARZ app. Previous seasons of Outlander are currently available to stream through Amazon, the STARZ app and Hulu.

When did Outlander Season 7 wrap filming?

STARZ announced Friday, Feb. 24, 2023 on its Outlander Twitter account that filming had officially wrapped on the time travel, romantic epic with a post with fun photos of cast members Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser), Caítriona Balfe (Claire Fraser), Richard Rankin (Roger McKenzie), Sophie Skelton (Briana McKenzie) and David Berry (Lord John).

Has Outlander been picked up for Season 8?

Every good story has to come to end and STARZ announced that while Outlander was renewed for Season 8, it will also be the series’ final season.

“We’re going to go out with a bang and tell the story the way it should be,” John Bell said.

“It’s been an incredible journey,” added Heughan, while Balfe said, “We hope we do you proud.”

"We want a satisfying ending for the show and for the fans and to leave them feeling like, 'Okay, it's really sad but we're satisfied with how this ended.' So there's a lot of pressure and we have been talking to Diana and will continue to do so and will tell her our ending – we want to make sure she's happy as well," Davis told Digital Spy.

The eighth season of Outlander will consist of 10 episodes.
