Over the last week, the Outlander prequel show Outlander: Blood of My Blood has grown its cast by adding six more actors. According to Deadline, we've got quite an addition, and I have to say, I am very excited about it.

The new series has been busy filming in Scotland since February. Based on all the news that has been coming out the last couple of months, this is a pretty big production with a huge cast. That shouldn't come as a surprise, since Outlander: Blood of My Blood has a storyline set in multiple time periods. We'll meet Jamie's parents in the 18th century and Claire's parents in the 20th! (Those roles have already been cast, as have younger versions of Outlander characters Murtagh Fitzgibbons, Dougal and Colum MacKenzie, and Ned Gowan.)

It is quite an exciting moment indeed for Outlander fans, especially as we endure this extended Droughtlander that is going to end in November 2024. But with that, let's meet the new cast members of Outlander: Blood of My Blood!

Here are the six new actors joining Outlander: Blood of My Blood

Last but not least, Eaton will play the role of “Private Charlton.” He is a close friend of Claire's father Henry Beauchamp as well as a fellow soldier.

And there you have it, folks! These six actors have quite the task ahead of them as they join Outlander: Blood of My Blood. Some of them are stepping into the roles of characters we know from the original series, and some are completely brand new — either way, it's all very exciting.

A premiere date for the series has not been announced as of yet, but until that happens, we do have the second half of Outlander's Season 7 headed our way in November. There may be a Droughtlander at the moment, but rest assured, the best days are yet to come!
