Outlander prequel Blood of My Blood series has found its lead actors and production is under way in Scotland.

Filming has begun at Doune Castle in Scotland on Outlander: Blood of My Blood, a show that will focus on the parents of the leads in the main series. Starz previously said the prequel would center on Jamie Fraser’s mother and father; the premium cabler now confirms that Claire’s (Caitriona Balfe) parents will also be part of the story.

Harriet Slater (Pennyworth) and Jamie Roy (Lifetime’sYour Boyfriend Is Mine) will play Ellen MacKenzie and Brian Fraser, who will eventually become Jamie’s parents in 18th century Scotland. Hermione Corfield (We Hunt Together) and Jeremy Irvine (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again) will play Julia Moriston and Henry Beauchamp, Claire’s parents, whose story unfolds in World War I-era England.

“We’re thrilled to be telling the stories of these two couples,” said Matthew B. Roberts, showrunner of bothOutlanderandBlood of My Blood. “The origins of their relationships explore universal themes that transcend time periods, and we’re so excited for fans to discover and fall in love with these characters and their love stories the way they have with Claire and Jamie.”

As for the main series, the second half ofOutlander’s seventh season is set to air later this year (the first eight episodes ran in the summer of 2023), setting up the show’s eighth and final installment.

Starz began developingBlood of My Bloodin early 2022 and gave it a formal series order in January 2023, at the same time it announcedOutlanderwould end with season eight. As is the case with the main series, the prequel comes from Sony Pictures Television. Roberts executive produces with Ronald D. Moore and Maril Davis (via their Tall Ship Productions), who developedOutlander for TV. Story Mining & Supply Company also exec produces. Diana Gabaldon , who wrote the original Outlander books , is a consulting producer.
