With the news of Outlander Season 8 came the news of the Outlander prequel. Is Outlander: Blood of My Blood happening at STARZ?

In early 2022, we found out that there was talk of a prequel series to Claire and Jamie’s story. Then in the summer of 2022, that prequel was greenlit. Since then, there’s been no talk about it. Well, STARZ brought it up when sharing the news that Outlander Season 8 was officially happening and would be the last.

There is some great news for those who want the universe to continue. The prequel series is going to happen. Here’s what we know about it so far.

What is Outlander: Blood of My Blood about?

The Outlander prequel is going to be about Jamie’s parents, Ellen and Brian. We have seen one love story play out, and now it’s time to see another.

Of course, we know a little about Ellen and Brian. We know that Ellen was supposed to find someone else to marry but she fell for Brian Fraser. Her father wasn’t happy with the match, so Ellen ran off with Brian and didn’t return until she was pregnant with their first child. Brian built Lallybroch for his wife and family.

We also know a few men were in love with Ellen—or maybe just the idea of Ellen. Murtagh was one of those men, and he would become Jamie’s godfather due to his loyalty to Ellen.

Now it’s time to find out the real story. Let’s hope Outlander: Blood of My Blood sticks to canon better than The Winchesters has stuck to Supernatural canon.
