OUTLANDER fans will have to wait until November of this year before the second half of the show’s seventh season airs.

The first part of the hit show, based on the books written by Diana Gabaldon, aired in June 2023.

In a post on the show’s official Instagram page, it was announced the latest episodes would start airing in November 2024.

The note was posted alongside a selection of behind the scenes images, featuring stars including Sam Heughan, Caitriona Balfe, Sophie Skelton and Richard Rankin.

The upcoming eight-episode run is expected to be the show’s penultimate run, followed only by the eighth and final season, which is currently in production.

However, fans will still be able to look forward to the upcoming prequel series Outlander Blood of My Blood, which started filming in Glasgow last month.

A number of streets in Glasgow were closed off as filming took place for the 10-episode Starz series.

It’s set to focus on the love stories of Jamie Fraser (Heughan) and Claire Fraser’s (Balfe) parents.

Executive producer on Outlander Maril Davis previously spoke with the Radio Times about how the series will wrap up in light of the fact Gabaldon has yet to finish the tenth and final book.

“We’ve talked to Diana a bit. Once we figure out how the actual ending is going to be – which we don’t totally have yet – I think we’ll run it by her and make sure she’s OK with it,” she said.

She continued: "I’ve asked her about things that we want to do to make sure she’s OK. The last thing we want to do is step on Diana’s toes, she’s been so lovely and supportive of this series and so thrilled with how it’s gone. We want to repay her and be respectful of her, do her books justice.

"But also, she’s always felt like the books are hers and the show is something different and I love that about her, she gives us that freedom also to take chances and risks and do things slightly differently."
