Starz has released some small details about what to expect from the prequel series to its hit historical drama Outlander, which stars Sam Heughan and Caitríona Balfe as Jamie and Claire Fraser.

Both shows are based on the ongoing book series by Diana Gabaldon. It will reportedly center around the love story of Jamie Fraser’s parents. The series showrunner Matthew B. Roberts will write and exec produce the series while Gabaldon is attached as consulting producer.

No more story or casting details have been released as of yet, though Variety indicated that a writer’s room has been working on the concept since it was assembled at the top of this year. The parent characters are named Ellen MacKenzie and Brian Fraser and are the stars of a prequel novel Gabaldon is writing as well.

Outlander’s sixth season was released to critical acclaim after production was stalled for months due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Luckily, Starz has stuck by one of its most popular shows, and a seventh season began production back in May.
