The author of the Outlander book series, Diana Gabaldon addressed, as usual with much discretion, one of the fans’ main interrogatives: Will STARZ historical-fantasy drama end up it run with season 7?
In a recent interview with The Dipp, the author of the best-selling literary series, Diana Gabaldon spoke about the new and highly anticipated book of the series “Go Tell The Bees That I Am Gone”, which comes out on November 23, 2021, but not only that, Gabaldon also addressed one of the most difficult topics, the future of the STARZ drama series.
The announcement that Outlander was renewed for Season 7 happened on March 14 while Season 6 was in production after delays due to COVID-19. As a consultant on the show, Gabaldon confirms she knew about the renewal before the public did. With that said, she admits that she — and pretty much everyone else involved in the TV production — “totally don’t know” what the future holds after that.
“We don’t know whether seven is the last bit we’ll get. If it is still going strong and if our lead actors are inclined to go on and [the production company] Sony is inclined to go on, who knows? But there’s just way too many imponderables to predict.”Diana Gabaldon
It is also well known that Gabaldon revealed to the series creator, Ron Moore, and leads Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe, the ending of the series, in addition to the identity of the famous ghost of the Scotsman who shooked us in the first episode. All of us fans we hope they will continue to tell us more of the adventures of the Frasers for another 20 years, but in case Outlander ended with season 7, will the authors manage to give a dignified and sensible conclusion, reconnecting the events to the final still unknown to us?
Meanwhile, from Scotland we hear that Outlander Season 6 has wrapped production in recent days, all witnessed by beautiful shots by the cast and crew!
As anticipated in a previous article, it was announced that season 6 of STARZ’s historical-fantasy drama will debut on the small screen around February 2022, although it will have fewer episodes than usual given the timing dictated by the pandemic.
