Today's press release announcing that OUTLANDER will come to an end with Season 8 also contained the news that BLOOD OF MY BLOOD, the prequel TV series about Jamie Fraser's parents, has been officially "green-lit" (approved) by STARZ.

From the press release:

"Outlander: Blood of My Blood is, at its heart, a love story," said Matthew B. Roberts, showrunner and executive producer. "It will explore what lengths a person will go to find love in a time when love is considered a luxury, and when marriages are made strategically, often for political or financial gain. The title is a nod to Jamie Fraser’s marriage vow to Claire and there will be several names and faces that Outlander fans will know and recognize. Jamie and Claire’s TV story may be coming to an end with season eight, but Diana is continuing on with their literary journey in her wonderful book series and is working diligently on book ten. With Jamie and Claire, and now Brian and Ellen, there is still so much more to come in the Outlander universe, and we cannot wait to continue sharing these stories with our dedicated fans."

BLOOD OF MY BLOOD (or BOMB, for short) will be 10 episodes long.

In case you're wondering, yes, Diana Gabaldon is still writing the prequel novel about Brian Fraser and Ellen MacKenzie that this series will be based on. She will be a consultant to the production team, similar to her role with the OUTLANDER TV series.

Sounds good to me as long as Diana has anything to do with it it will be awesome.
