The pickup comes as the time-traveling drama is currently filming Season 6 with COVID precautions. Season 7, consisting of 12 episodes, will be based on the seventh of Diana Gabaldon's eight-book series, An Echo in the Bone. "Starz is committed to investing in unapologetic, bold premium storytelling that amplifies diverse voices and shines a spotlight on women in front of and behind the camera through our #TakeTheLead initiative," said Starz head of originals Christina Davis in a statement. "The hit series Outlander embodies everything about our initiative including a powerful female lead character and an amazing team of storytellers. We look forward to following the adventures of Claire and Jamie in America during the Revolution as well as more time travel during this next season."
