Starz announced today that Outlander has been picked up for Season 7. The good news comes ahead of the fantasy drama's sixth season, which has yet to set a premiere date. Filming on Season 6 had been delayed due to the ongoing global pandemic, but has since resumed production earlier this year.

The hour-long series has been a strong performer in the cable network's lineup. Along with continued critical acclaim and a wide variety of award wins, Outlander has seen its audience grow over the course of its run.

Filmed on location in Scotland, Outlander is adapted from Diana Gabaldon's International best-selling eight-book series (soon to be nine). Season 7 will be based on "An Echo in the Bone and will consist of 16 episodes.
