While we’re still waiting for Outlander Season 7B, fans of the series had the opportunity to meet some of the cast at Land Con 6 in Paris on April 13th and 14th. Present at this official event was Sam Heughan, who plays Jamie Fraser. He took the opportunity to talk about the end of the series and Outlander: Blood of My Blood, the prequel currently in development by the American channel Starz.

Written by Matthew B. Roberts, this Outlander spin-off will explore the lives of Jamie’s parents in the early 18th century Scottish Highlands and Claire’s parents in World War I England. It’s an ambitious project that will expand the universe of the original series, and one that already has the strong support of Sam Heughan. The Scottish actor promises: “If you love Outlander, you’re going to love Blood of My Blood.”

He adds: “I’m really excited about this show. There is so much to look forward to. This show, I can’t give anything away, but I’m going to be the biggest fan. I’ve been hearing stories about the actors, about the characters and the storyline… I can’t wait to see it.” That’s reassuring news for fans of the original series.
