Halfway through the filming of Season 7, writers were unaware of the renewal of Outlander Season 8. And while the upcoming Season was supposed to start filming early this year, the infamous strike has put everything on hold.
Having said that, this article will discuss the show’s potential release date, trailer, cast, streaming platform, and so on.
Is Outlander Renewed For Season 8?
It is indeed renewed for Season 8. In January 2023, Starz announced the arrival of their upcoming Season, yet the show’s finale. However, before you wallow in disappointment, this isn’t the end of the Outlander universe.
In fact, soon enough, makers will come back with a prequel series.
This prequel series will primarily focus on Jamie’s parents’ (Ellen and Brian) love story.
When Is Outlander Season 8 Releasing?
Unfortunately, the release date of Season 8 is not announced yet.
And rightfully so, as the show is still airing Season 7 (part one), which will end by August 2023. Then you will get the second half of Season 7 by the end of 2023.
Therefore, it’s safe to assume Season 8 will release sometime in 2025.
However, remember that the AFTRA Strike is still ongoing, so the upcoming Season might take longer than I anticipated.
Is The Official Trailer Out Yet?
Unfortunately, Season 8 is not out yet. However, whenever it arrives, I will keep you updated.
What Can You Expect From Outlander Season 8?
Since Season 7 is not out entirely, there is not much we can anticipate. All I know is there is enough source material (aka, books) for makers to cover.
That being said, I will update this section once I gather more information on what to expect from the upcoming Season.
Where Can You Watch Outlander Season 8?
You can watch the upcoming Season on the Starz network. Additionally, you can even stream the Season on the Starz application.
Who Will Be Starring In The Upcoming Season Of Outlander?
The confirmed star cast of Outlanders has not been announced yet. However, the show’s lead actors, Sam Huegan and Caitriona Balfe, would definitely return as Jamie and Claire.
That being said, the following is the list of the rest of the expected cast of Outlander Season 8:-
- César Domboy portrays Fergus Fraser
- Izzy Meikle-Small portrays Rachel Hunter
- Kristin Atherton portrays Jenny Murray
- John Bell portrays young Ian Fraser
- Lauren Lyle portrays Marsali Fraser
- David Berry portrays Lord John Grey
- Charles Vandervaart portrays William Ransom
The Final Verdict
Outlander Season 8, aka. The show’s final Season will be back sometime around 2025. You can watch the show either on Starz Network or the streaming app Starz.
However, remember that the potential release date might be postponed due to the ongoing writer/performer’s strike. So, that’s it for my article on Season 8.
In case of additional information, I will keep the page updated.
It is returning with Season 8, which will also be their final Season. So, stay tuned to see how the story unfolds.
Once the Outlander comes out around 2025, you can watch it on Starz.
Unfortunately, there won’t be Season 9 for Outlander, as Season 8 is serving as the show’s finale.
