Outlander Season 7 Part 2 Teases a Shocking Turn for Claire & Jamie. Here’s the Release Date!

It’s seemed like an interminably long wait, but everything we know about Outlander Season 7 Part 2 has just increased.

As part of the World Outlander Day celebration, Starz announced today that the highly anticipated second half of the seventh will premiere on Friday, November 22.

Coming off of the first half of Outlander Season 7, viewers find Claire (Caitríona Balfe), Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Young Ian (John Bell) leaving the colonies and arriving in their beloved homeland: Scotland.

The perils of the Revolutionary War force them to choose between standing by those they love and fighting for the land they have made their new home.

Meanwhile, Roger (Richard Rankin) and Brianna (Sophie Skelton) face new enemies across time, and must battle the forces that threaten to pull their family apart.

As loyalties change and painful secrets come to light, Jamie and Claire’s marriage is tested like never before.

With their love binding them over oceans and centuries, can the MacKenzies and Frasers find their way back to each other?

In the stunning teaser trailer released, Claire speaks over what unfolds on screen.

She no longer feels as though she belongs to the future, as she and Jamie have fully committed to helping bring forth the new nation for all that it represents and for those they hold most dear.

For Brianna, for Roger, and for all of them.

War is not easy, and fighting for principles requires incredible sacrifice.

Claire is willing to put love on the table, and the teaser suggests that she may lose the man for whom she’s traveled through time to cherish, marry, and bear children.

Outlander is a romance, a historical drama, and a science-fiction-based fantasy, so we all know that nothing is ever as simple or straightforward as it might seem on the surface.

We are so ready to see the next eight episodes of Season 7 unfold for all facets of the incredible storytelling we’ve come to love.

For those of you who want your Outlander a little sooner, you’ll be able to see fresh episodes on the Starz app and on-demand platforms, beginning at midnight ET on Friday, November 22.
