New dates have been revealed for the filming of an Outlander prequel in Glasgow after production was postponed due to severe weather.

Blood of My Blood, the spin-off of the world famous TV show, will restart filming in Scotland’s biggest city from Sunday, February 25.

It comes after the series, which will tell the story of Jamie Fraser’s (Sam Heughan) and Claire Beauchamp’s (Caitriona Balfe) parents, just announced casting for its lead characters.

The 10 episode Starz series will see Harriet Slater (Pennyworth, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny) play Jamie’s mother Ellen MacKenzie and Greenock-born Jamie Roy (Condor’s Nest) portray his father Brian Fraser.

Meanwhile, Jeremy Irvine (War Horse, Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again) has been cast as Claire’s father Henry Beauchamp and Hermione Corfield (Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, Star Wars: The Last Jedi) will play her mother Julia Moriston.

The project is based on a new book by bestselling Outlander author Diana Gabaldon and will be led by Outlander writers and producers.

It is likely to fill the hole left for fans after Outlander airs its eighth and final season, which is also being filmed in Scotland this year.

Outlander: Blood of My Blood was initially scheduled to begin filming in January, 2024. However, this was postponed due to the serious storms which swept Scotland early in the year.
