The drama will center on the lives and relationship of Jamie Fraser’s parents, Brian Fraser and Ellen MacKenzie, and will be available on Lionsgate+ in the U.K., Australia, Latin America, including Brazil, and across all STARZ platforms in the U.S. and Canada.  

Matthew B. Roberts is signed on to write the prequel and will also serve as showrunner and executive producer. In addition to Roberts, Ronald D. Moore will also executive produce the prequel along with Maril Davis.

The eighth season of the flagship series Outlander will consist of ten episodes, following an extended 16-episode seventh season, which is currently filming in Scotland and will air this summer on STARZ.
