Starz is closing one chapter of OUTLANDER and opening another.

OUTLANDER will return for its eighth season—which will be the show’s last, Starz announced. But the world won’t be gone for long, as the channel greenlit a prequel series, OUTLANDER: BLOOD OF MY BLOOD.

STARZ announced today a renewal for an eighth and final season of its popular time-traveling fantasy drama, “Outlander,” and has greenlit the highly anticipated “Outlander: Blood of My Blood,” a prequel series from Matthew B. Roberts, Ronald D. Moore and Maril Davis, who also serve as executive producers of the original series.

According to Starz, the 10-episode prequel series “will center on the lives and relationship of Jamie Fraser’s parents, Brian Fraser and Ellen MacKenzie.” 

“OUTLANDER: BLOOD OF MY BLOOD is, at its heart, a love story,” said executive producer Matthew B. Roberts in a statement. “It will explore what lengths a person will go to find love in a time when love is considered a luxury, and when marriages are made strategically, often for political or financial gain. The title is a nod to Jamie Fraser’s marriage vow to Claire and there will be several names and faces that OUTLANDER fans will know and recognize. Jamie and Claire’s TV story may be coming to an end with season eight, but Diana is continuing on with their literary journey in her wonderful book series and is working diligently on book ten. With Jamie and Claire, and now Brian and Ellen, there is still so much more to come in the OUTLANDER universe, and we cannot wait to continue sharing these stories with our dedicated fans.”

“For nearly a decade OUTLANDER has won the hearts of audiences worldwide and we’re pleased to bring Claire and Jamie’s epic love story to a proper conclusion,” added Kathryn Busby, President, Original Programming for STARZ. “But before we close this chapter there is plenty of their passionate story to tell over the course of 26 new episodes and even more to explore of this dynamic world and its origin story. We’re thrilled to continue to partner with Matthew, Maril and Ronald and can’t wait to see where their alluring storytelling takes us next.”

The final season of OUTLANDER will consist of ten episodes; season 7, which is bowing this summer, will be 16 episodes.
