While we want more Outlander, we are also ready for the prequel spin-off series. When will Outlander: Blood of My Blood come to STARZ?

There are a few shows that we’re looking forward to coming up on STARZ. One of them is the Outlander prequel series about Jamie’s parents. The show has been officially greenlit by STARZ, and now the waiting game is on.

One thing we know for certain is that Outlander: Blood of My Blood is not coming to STARZ this month. It’s not like we expected it, but it didn’t stop us from just looking at possibilities of the shows arriving on the streamer.

When will Outlander: Blood of My Blood come to STARZ?

There isn’t a release date for the series just yet. That’s not too surprising. The series isn’t even in production yet. STARZ will likely have a release year in mind—and it could be 2025—but there is a lot in limbo at the moment.

Work on the Outlander shows has come to a halt. This isn’t to do with the SAG-AFTRA strike, as the shows aren’t SAG shows. The good news is post-production on Outlander Season 7B could keep happening. The problem for Season 8 and the prequel is the WGA strike. The writers of both of the shows are part of the WGA.

Without scripts, no work can be done on the production. Even with scripts, it would be difficult to film. If any rewrites are needed—and rewrites always end up being needed—the writers wouldn’t be able to do it. There are strict rules on the rewrites during strike action, so it’s safer to leave the series in limbo than try to push through with production.

This will delay the release of the series, but a show like this already takes a couple of years to get through all stages of production. It’s probably not too much of a concern for STARZ considering there is already a loyal following in the universe.
