'Outlander' Reveals Season 7 Trailer and Key Art
War has once again found Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) with the advent of the American Revolution when Season 7 of Outlander premieres on STARZ on June 16, and the Fraser clan is finally forced to publicly take sides.
In the trailer for the new season, Claire, who had worked diligently with Jamie to try to prevent the Battle of Culloden, (Caitríona Balfe) admits, “I had hoped Jamie would stay away from it, but maybe he’s supposed to be there. Maybe he always was.”
And Jamie himself is none too happy with being pulled into the conflict, especially when he discovers from Lord John (David Berry) that his illegitimate son William Ransom (Charles Vandervaart) has bought a commission in the British Army.

He tells Claire, “I made a promise to myself, I would never face my son.”
The war hasn’t yet come to Fraser’s Ridge, and so they go to meet it. And as they leave, Claire asks Jamie, “We will make it back here one day, won’t we?”
Young Ian (John Bell) is also ready to enlist. He says, “I love this land. I want to fight for it.”
The presence of a singular black crow in the trailer doesn’t bode well for what’s to come in the eight episodes that will air this summer. It appears to be an omen of bad things to come.
And we end with Claire telling Jamie, “Come back to me. You always do.”
But not before he tells her, “I am not brave enough to live without you anymore.”
He also gifts her with a gemstone that would ease her way through the stones should she need to return to the future. He says, “I’ve been saving it. Should I be killed, you could go back.”

The synopsis as released by STARZ:
“Season seven picks up from the harrowing events of the end of season six, with Jamie and Young Ian racing to rescue Claire before she’s tried and wrongfully convicted for the murder of Malva Christie. But their mission is complicated by the beginning of a geopolitical firestorm: The American Revolution has arrived.
“In the seventh season of Outlander, Jamie, Claire, and their family are caught in the violent birth pains of an emerging nation as armies march to war and British institutions crumble in the face of armed rebellion.
“The land the Frasers call home is changing – and they must change with it. In order to protect what they’ve built, the Frasers have to navigate the perils of the Revolutionary War. They learn that sometimes to defend what you love, you have to leave it behind. As the conflict draws them out of North Carolina and into the heart of this fight for independence, Jamie, Claire, Brianna (Sophie Skelton), and Roger (Richard Rankin) are faced with impossible decisions that have the potential to tear their family apart.”
In addition to the aforementioned, Izzy Meikle-Small will be joining the cast as Rachel Hunter and Joey Phillips as Denzell Hunter, a Quaker brother and sister.
Outlander returns with the first half of its highly anticipated seventh season on Friday, June 16 at midnight ET on the STARZ app, all STARZ streaming and on-demand platforms and internationally on the LIONSGATE+ premium streaming platform in the U.K. On linear, it will debut on STARZ on June 16 at 8 p.m. ET/PT in the U.S.
