In January, Starz announced that the upcoming eighth season of Outlander will be its last, but the story won’t end there: The network has also ordered a spinoff, Outlander: Blood of My Blood, centered on Jamie’s parents.
Season 7 will feature the recast of a popular character: Kristin Atherton (Doctors, Waterloo Road) will take over as Jamie’s sister, Jenny Murray, a role played in Seasons 1 through 3 by Laura Donnelly (The Nevers). The season, which showrunner Matthew B. Roberts has said will “revisit some of our favorite characters in different times and places,” also will feature the return of Graham McTavish (who plays Dougal MacKenzie), Nell Hudson (Laoghaire Fraser), Steven Cree (the elder Ian Murray), Lotte Verbeek (Geillis Duncan), Andrew Whipp (Brian Fraser) and Layla Burns (Joan MacKimmmie). In addition, Charles Vandervaart (Lost in Space) will join the cast as William Ransom, Jamie’s grown son.
