The story will follow Jamie and Jenny's parents

The story will be penned by showrunner Matthew B. Roberts, who is currently the showrunner and executive producer on Outlander.

Fans have had a somewhat mixed reaction to the news, with one writing: "This scares me though because I feel like it’s the beginning of the end of actual outlander," while another fan added: "What about the main story? Usually, prequels are made when the main series has finished... What about a season 8 or... the season 7 it will be the season final?"

Who came before Jamie and Claire?

Outlander is currently set to return for season seven, and recently announced, two new cast members, Izzy Meikle-Small and Joey Phillips. The pair will play brother and sister Rachel Hunter and Dr Denzel 'Denny' Hunter.

In photos obtained by fans, the pair appear to be shooting a scene where they are riding horses through the forest, which could potentially be the moment where they leave their small Quaker settlement to travel North with one of Denzel's former patients, William Ransom.
