Outlander Season 8 Cast, Release, and Detail

Here's all about Outlander Season 8's cast and Starz release. Based on Diana Gabaldon's Outlander novels, this series follows a World War II nurse who travels to 1743 and falls in love with a Highland warrior.

The show immediately became one of the game's most popular historical dramas, covering centuries of human history and spotlighting some of the largest battles and public events in the US and globally. 

Deadline reported that Starz renewed Outlander for its eighth season in January 2023, confirming that it will be the last.A date was had. With the writers' strike, who knows? We must wait and see."

This comment implies that Outlander Season 8 had a start date, thus sets and locations were prepared before Hollywood closed. Balfe told Express in May 2023 that filming will begin "in a few months," but he did not provide a date:

"We’re about to start shooting, in a few months, our eighth season but our seventh season is starting to air on June 16th on Lionsgate+." Since the writers' and performers' strikes ended in November, filming may move fast.

Season 7 filmed from May 2022 to February 2023 (confirmed on Instagram by star Sam Heughan), a total of 220 days before its June 16, 2023 premiere. Then, in November 2023, Heughan posted an Instagram photo of himself in front of a giant Outlander sign with the phrases "Season 8..." and "prep," hinting that he was preparing to return to the program.

Season 8 shooting in 2024 will likely continue most of the year and into early 2025. That timetable suggests that Outlander Season 8 won't run until late 2025, however it's more likely to air in Winter or Spring 2025.

However, series actor Caitriona Balfe told Radio Times that the writers' strike delayed Season 8 production, despite a start date:
