THE details of an Outlander prequel series have been revealed.

Titled Blood of My Blood, the prequel will follow the love story of Jamie Fraser’s (Sam Heughan) parents.

The series is officially in the making with Starz, which runs Outlander as well as Men In Kilts, starring Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish.

The television network revealed on Thursday that the new series will focus on Jamie Fraser’s parents, Ellen MacKenzie and Brian Fraser.

Outlander’s producer and writer Matthew B. Roberts will also be at the helm of Blood of My Blood.

Also joining the project are Maril Davis and Ronald Moore, who originally developed Outlander for television.

It comes after Outlander author Diana Gabaldon revealed she was writing a prequel book series about Jamie Fraser’s parents.

Ms Gabaldon will be a consulting producer on the new show.

Blood of My Blood will cover Ellen and Brian’s romance before the events of the Outlander show.

Nothing has been confirmed yet, but Scottish actor Sam Heughan, 42, has previously spoken out and said he will probably not be in it.

He said previously: “All I can tell you is I’m not in it, as Jamie’s not in it."

The series will take place before Claire Fraser travels back in time to 18th Century Scotland, so it is unlikely Caitriona Balfe will star.

Outlander Season 6 finished earlier this year, with Season 7 expected to be released in 2023.

No official date has been announced for the return of the series yet.
