Plot and Cast of Outlander
The plot details for Seasons 7 and 8 of Outlander have been overlooked by the producers, although the program is expected to continue after it was concluded in the previous season. More information will be released soon.
Season 6 ended with some big surprises that would be repeated in Season 7. Claire is in jail in Wilmington, and may be sentenced to death for the murder of Tom Christie's daughter Malva, and is likely to be hanged if found guilty. With Young Ian and John Quincy Myers, Jamie is on the way to rescue her, presumably planning another prison break.
The seventh season will be based on Gabaldon's 7th book, An Echo in the Bone, although the producers haven't revealed much about the eighth season.
