At the time of this writing, show executive producer Maril Davis is doing a Twitter Q&A session on a few different subjects … and there are a couple of notable things from it already. Take, for example, the fact that she is still hoping to get a season 7 and season 8 renewal. The reason why it’s so notable those two are mentioned in tandem is simply this — it suggests that maybe Sony and Starz could consider a two-season renewal, much like they’ve done in the past. It would make sense for them scheduling-wise, but we don’t think that there is any reason to think news is coming soon.
Let’s look at things through this lens — Outlander season 6 is already official. We know that the plan was for production to start later this spring — there’s a good chance that this will be delayed due to the health crisis in the real world, so starting off that season is probably a priority before the renewal. We could see a season 7 announcement coming at some point before the end of filming, largely so that the writers could get to work on more.
For now, what matters the most is this — that the creative team has a chance to know before season 6 is done as to whether or not there will be more. That way, there is certainty as to whether or not there will be a fitting end.
Meanwhile, Davis also noted that season 5 episode 12 (the finale) is locked — there shouldn’t be any delay on it being delivered due to the current headlines. We’ll have more news as it breaks.
Are you hoping to see an Outlander season 7 at some point in the future?
