STARZ has announced the renewal of Outlander for an eighth season, but this news is not as pleasant as it might seem: the platform has in fact added that it will also be the last.

It will explore how far a person can go to find love when love is considered a luxury, and when marriages are made strategically, often for political or financial gain”he has declared Matthew B. Robertsshowrunner and executive producer. “The title is a reference to Jamie Fraser’s marriage vows to Claire, and there will be several names that Outlander fans will recognize.
