Outlander FInishes First Half of Season 7 Filming

IMG_0887

But first, let’s catch up on a whole lotta Outlander goings on! It’s been just about two weeks since NYCC 2022, when Diana Gabaldon appeared with some of the characters from her book series: Jamie, Murtagh, and Lord John. David Berry, Duncan Lacroix, and Sam Heughan all participated in panels and were quite cheeky. It was bad enough when Duncan and David hit the streets of NYC last year, secretly writing their names in Gabaldon’s books at NYC bookshops. Now ad Sam Heughan into the mix. I am sure that NYC is just recovering.

Please thank and like themusicsweetly for taking this great panel taping. Season 8, Murtagh’s Ghost may make an appearance? I did mention spoilers, right?

Season 7 First Half Completed

As we have mentioned here before, filming started in Scotland in the spring of this year. As was promised after a short Season 6 due to Covid filming restrictions, Season 7 will be an extended season. And some extreme but familiar themes, meaning that yes, Claire found herself in jail for the murder of Malva Christie. Our here always manages to get into it somehow. Let’s catch up with the changes and familiar faces returning to this show. 

As was rumored, Laura Donnelly will not be returning as Jamie’s sister Jenny (Janet), and has been recast with Kristin Atherton, we’ll see how that works. Rumour had been going around that Donnelley would not return. With her great performances on stage and in other series, as an actor, she felt it was time to move on. Luckily Steven Cree is back as old Ian Murray. 

Outlander Season 7 has Jenny Recast

Other ghosts from the past, or characters that we had hoped were definitely done and gone: Geillis Duncan (Lotte Verbeek) returns in a flashback, and so does Dugal MacKenzie (Graham McTavish), and horrors, Laoghaire Fraser (Nell Hudson)! More trauma this season, and plenty of ghosts from the past.

Well, we can say one thing, Lord Elsmere (Jaimie Vandervaart), or Jamie’s Illegitimate son who doesn’t know his parentage at this point, will now show up as a commissioned officer. Jamie will now have the real possibility of being on opposite sides with his own child in the brewing war. Not to mention the real possibility of Brianna (Sophie Skelton), who knows she has a half-brother, meeting him for the first time.

Outlander adds new and old cast members

Denzell (Joey Phillips) and Rachael Hunter (Izzy Meikle-Small), a pair of siblings who are Friends (Quakers) were put out of a meeting. More religious dealings to keep Outlander interesting. Denzell is a doctor and works with the rebels for the cause. Just to color things up a bit, Benedict Arnold turns up played by Rod Hallett. Let’s see how much history will get changed on that one since Claire, Brianna, and Roger all know that fate.

Speaking of which, and book spoilers here, Brianna and Roger return to the twentieth century for real this time, family in tow. The MacKenzies befriend a questionable person in the guise of Rob Cameron after setting up a new home. Luckily they receive a box of two century-old letters from Claire and Jamie that catch up to them. Here they learn that they leave North Carolina in flight, and have epic dealings with privateers and ocean battles.

Outlander season 7 premiere date: The state of things at Starz

So while this season may be a long time coming, and possibly be split into two parts like the extended first season, you can rest assured there will be plenty of American revolution to go around. Let’s hope the Browns get their comeuppance. And how will they deal with Laoghaire, that bad penny that just won’t go away?

And take a grand tour of the big house, as many of us know the fate of the said house and that mysterious newspaper article about Fraser’s parishing in a fire.
