Gabaldon Announces Book 9 in the Outlander Series is Finished

Screen Shot 2021-04-15 at 3.10.27 PM

It is with a great sigh that we have experienced the last episode of Men in Kilts with Sam and Graham ending the series at the Culloden, battle field. I can say with personal experience, that I trekked around the perimeter of the moor in some serious dreich to get a perspective on how bad the conditions must have been for the battle. Now we have a drought again until season 6 airs, or could we possibly get the new book published just before then?

Season 6 will combine books A Breath of Snow and Ashes, and An Echo in The Bone. Plenty of time to re-read them for the third time.

Diana Gabaldon has announced on March 27, 2021, that she has finished Go Tell The Bees That I am Gone, the 9th book in the Outlander Series. It is announced that there is a release date of November 2021. Diana has broken down the publishing process for us on her website, and I suggest you look at it. After years of being asked when is it going to publish, I think she has given us a great break down to the process and once she has handed it over, it’s up to the publishers.

The book may not be published until just before season is ready to air, or if the publisher wants to get that holiday selling going, it might be by the 2021 holiday season. However, since these books sell tremendously well, the publisher could wait until after the new year and more of the Covid delays in manufacturing have caught up. So, we are probably looking at early 2022.

Starz® has officially announced that season 7 of Outlander is a go! Filming for the long delayed season 6 began this past month in Cumbernald, Scotland. Covid-19 restrictions delayed the season 6 filming based on Diana Gabaldon’s book, A Breath of Snow and Ashes

Season 7 will encompass the 7th book in the series, An Echo in the Bone. Matt B. Roberts will return as showrunner, with Sam Heughn, Caitriona Balfe, Sophie Skelton, and Richard Rankin all on board. Sony Pictures has picked it up as a 12 episode season. But don’t look for it to air before 2023. Season 6 will be possibly airing in early 2022.

Will the television series stay the course and cover all of Diana Gabaldon’s books? Diana is finishing up the latest book, Go Tell The Bees That I am Gone, the 9th book in the popular series, possibly early next year and may be timed for release when season 6 comes out.

Ron D. Moore, Maril Davis (Tall Ships), Toni Graphia, Jim Kohlberg and Andy Harries will be Executive Producing for season 7. It is not clear yet that Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe will produce again.

Oliver Finnegan as Lord William Ransome

And could we see William Ransome in season 6? Since Stephen Bonnet’s demise was brought in early and in the books, that is where Brianna meets her half brother for the first time, since it the writers are now condensing some story lines, we may get to see young William surface in the season. Outlander has been keeping casting close to the bone this season.

An Echo in the Bone continues with Jamie and Claire Fraser deeply embroiled in the American Revolution. Jamie’s illegitimate son, William Ransome, is an officer in the King’s army with Lord John Grey searching for him. The book has some great plot twists I will not reveal, and as always, the Outlander writers room will possibly combine scenes from the following book, Written in My Own Heart’s Blood, to speed up the story line.

Even though the American Revolution actually spanned 7 plus years. Remember, just because independence was declared, it was fought for for many years. However, television series on this scale can rarely go through 10 seasons. There have been hints that the Outlander series will receive the same treatment as Game of Thrones, shortened to 8 seasons and writers taking the helm completely as Diana Gabaldon is just beginning the final book in the series. If you have been a fan, you know she takes a good 5 years average to finish each book, often times longer.

However, rejoice in knowing you will have at least 2 more seasons, and a possible spin off series to come.
