Outlander is a television historical drama series based on Diana Gabaldon’s novel series of the same name. Ronald D. Moore created the show, which premiered on Starz on August 9, 2014. Caitriona Balfe plays Claire Randall, a former Second World War military nurse from Scotland who is transported to 1743 in 1945.
There she meets, falls in love with, and marries Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), a tacksman of Gabaldon’s fictionalized Clan Fraser of Lovat, and becomes involved in the Jacobite rebellion.
The first season of the television series, which consists of 16 episodes, is based on the first novel in the series, Outlander. Now that we know the eighth season is on its way, here are all the details you need to know about Outlander Season 8.
Will There Be an 8th Season of Outlander?
Yes, and that’s good news. STARZ has finally made it official that the science fiction show Outlander will be back for an eighth season. But there is also bad news. The high-end cable channel has also said that season 8 of the Outlander series will be the last.
This news comes as we wait for the summer release of season seven of Claire and Jamie’s beloved time-traveling historical romance. The series will end as the longest-running original show in the history of STARZ, setting a new standard.

The network hasn’t said when Season 8 will come out yet. Also, the seventh season of the show is likely to start airing in the middle of 2023.
