Outlander star Caitriona Balfe teases 'a lot of peril' in 'epic' Season 7

Caitriona Balfe has shared an ominous teaser for Outlander Season 7 as she hints there's 'a lot of peril' in store for the Fraser clan.

The Irish actress, 43, has played Claire Fraser on the show since 2013 alongside Sam Heughan as Jamie Fraser. Speaking at a press event for season seven, Caitriona teased fans about what's in store for the penultimate season.

She told Radio Times: "It was such an epic season. And there's just so much that happens this year. But yeah, well hopefully, I think the fans will be happy."

Speaking about what surprised her in the upcoming season, which consists of 16 episodes to make up for Covid filming restrictions, Caitriona said: "There’s quite a lot... This season was really interesting because there are multiple storylines that we follow, instead of it just being, you know... season one was purely through Claire's perspective.

"Season two, sort of Claire and Jamie's, and then we've slowly opened it up over the years. But this, I feel like this is the most expansive the show has been."

She continued: "So, in that way, it's always interesting for me to watch other people's storylines, stuff that I'm not involved in. There's some real juicy bits that happen this year.

"There’s a lot of peril this season and a lot of things happen."

She added: "There’s a lot of loss and things are unsettled. It’s just very epic, this season."

The highly anticipated seventh season kicks off exactly where fans were left with Claire in jail, and Jamie rushing to save her. Speaking at a panel after the premiere, Outlander executive producer Maril Davis calls described the season as "epic" and teased the return of some historical figures and some new faces.

Outlander series 1-6 are available to stream on LIONSGATE+ in the UK. Outlander Season 7 premieres Friday, June 16 on Starz.
