The Outlander Season 7 premiere arrives on STARZ tonight. How long is the first episode of the season going to be?

Droughtlander is almost over. The Midnight Club will be getting ready to tune into the Outlander Season 7 premiere tonight. It’s certainly not an episode to miss.

This episode picks up off the back of that Season 6 finale. Jamie is racing to Claire to save her from certain doom. It’s always been clear that Claire won’t get a fair trial, but Jamie has to hope that Tom Christie has her back until he can get to her. He’s racing to her with Young Ian, John Quincy Myers, and some of the Native American tribesmen who have chosen to fight alongside him.

The Revolutionary War has reached North Carolina. There is no way out of it now. Jamie has picked his side, but is he willing to face his son on the other side of a battlefield? Would he switch sides to fight with his son even though he knows it’s the losing side?

Outlander Season 7 premiere episode length

We’ve seen premieres run longer than other episodes in the past. Is that going to be the case here?

Sadly, not. STARZ has a run time of 60 minutes when it airs on the linear channel at 8 p.m. on Friday, June 16. However, it’s worth noting that the encore of the episodes at 9:32 p.m. gives it a run-time of 62 minutes. What’s an extra two minutes?

To make it even more confusing, the encore at 11 p.m. that night says 64 minutes. What’s clear is that we’re getting about the normal length of episode for the Outlander Season 7 premiere.

This episode is not one to miss. Who’s with me in the Midnight Club?

Take a look at the promo and synopsis for the first episode:

"Jamie races towards Wilmington to rescue Claire from the gallows, only to discover that the American Revolution has well and truly reached North Carolina."
