Outlander Spinoff ‘Blood Of My Blood’

Early in 2023, news broke that “Outlander” had been picked up for an eighth and final season, cancelling Starz’s initial plan to adapt all of Diana Gabaldon’s novels (the final one hasn’t been completed yet).

The time-traveling adventures of Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitrona Balfe) will come to an end with that, but fans will be happy to hear that a prequel series that carries on the Fraser family’s saga is officially in production.

When Deadline revealed in 2020 that the network executives had urged producers Ronald D. Moore and Maril Davis to “to plot a slew of spin-offs, sequels, and story extensions,” there was speculation that Starz was extending the “Outlander” universe.

A few months after the prequel series was granted the formal go-ahead in 2022, it was revealed that the writers’ room had begun developing screenplays and that the show had been given the title “Outlander: Blood of My Blood.”

Numerous more facts regarding the series, like the casting of Jamie and Claire’s parents in the lead roles, have been revealed, despite the lack of an official release date. See all we currently know about the series by continuing to read.

Despite hearing a lot about them over the years, viewers have never seen these two “Outlander” figures.””The core of ‘Blood of My Blood’ is a love story,” stated Roberts, who will also act as the showrunner and executive producer. “It will explore what lengths a person will go to find love in a time when love is considered a luxury, and when marriages are made strategically, often for political or financial gain.”Fans of the books and television series “Outlander” will know exactly what Roberts means because season one of the show presented a condensed version of Ellen and Brian’s love story: When Ellen became clearly pregnant with their first child, the pair eloped together and remained concealed, forcing Ellen’s family to accept their According to the “Outlander” books, that’s when the Great Gathering at Castle Leoch took place, which is when Brian and Ellen first met.Given that “Dragonfly in Amber” revealed that both our heroine Ellen and her future husband Brian were born in 1681, that would mean that they were both 25 years old when the series started.

The author has revealed that she is working on multiple storylines involving Jamie and Claire in addition to the anticipated tenth and last “Outlander” book, which will also include a prequel about the same characters.Although the novel does not yet have a title, Gabaldon revealed to the crowd at the Edinburgh International novel Festival in 2022 that it is full of historical intrigue and romance. She has provided multiple book snippets with her Facebook following, for those who are interested. Executive producer Maril Davis provided Insider with an update on the show’s development in August, saying, “We hope she will share as she goes, but we’ve kind of been taking the breadcrumbs she’s left in her books and expanding on those to build a story.” Starz declared in January that “Outlander: Blood of My Blood” had been given the go-ahead for a 10-episode season.

Whether this indicates that “Outlander: Blood of My Blood” will be a one-off or if fans may anticipate future seasons when the show premieres has not been verified. Insider’s request for comment was not answered by Starz representatives.

If you’re wondering what “Blood of My Blood” actually means, “Outlander” viewers are probably familiar with it because Jamie and Claire exchanged it as part of their Gaelic blood pledge on their wedding day.”You are my blood and my bone; I give you my body so that we may become one.” I give you my spirit until the end of our lives.”Viewers were able to witness Brian and Ellen exchange the pledge at their marriage, as Gabaldon created it herself.
