The actor, who plays Jamie Fraser in the time-travel drama, said one season was particularly hard to film

The Glasgow-born actor, who stars with Caitriona Balfe, said filming season six was the hardest. On the Just The Facts with Alex Zane podcast, Heughan revealed that even though season six was shorter than the others, it was the most challenging.

He said: “It [was] the shortest season we’ve done, only eight episodes but it’s potentially one of the hardest because we were shooting during a pandemic and there were a lot of factors involved that made it pretty difficult to shoot.”

“For the first few days after shooting and completing a season of Outlander, you’re still on this hamster wheel of getting things done and everything.”

The second part of season 7 is expected to be released this year. Filming has already started on the Blood of my Blood prequel, which will explore the lives of the main characters’ parents.

Author Diana Gabaldon has also revealed that she is currently working on the 10th book of the series but fans expect the eighth season of Outlander to be the final series.
