Viewers are more excited than ever for season seven of Outlander. One of the best pieces of news in regard to the upcoming season is that it will have double the number of episodes that were included in the sixth season. For those who have some catching up to do, Outlander is a drama series that first premiered in 2014 and is based on the novel series of the same name by Diana Gabaldon.
The crux of the show is the tragic love story of Claire Randall and the badass Highland warrior Jamie Fraser. Claire, who is a former Second World War military nurse, finds herself as an unwilling participant in a time-traveling fiasco and ends up going back in time to 1743. She encounters a trillion adversities but with the kind-hearted and brave Jamie by her side, she overcomes them all and eventually marries him.
The last we saw the couple, they were stuck in yet another dilemma as Malva Christie reduced Jamie to be a topic of negative gossip as she announced her pregnancy along with the revelation that he is the father. What will happen next? Will the ongoing turmoil weaken Claire and Jamie’s control over Fraser’s Ridge? Only the next season holds all the answers.
