When Will ‘Outlander’ Return? There’s Disappointing News About Season 7 Part 2 </a>
</p>
</div>
<p id=”par-8_65″>Fergus, who was born in a brothel in Paris, was taken in by Jamie (Heughan) as a child and essentially became his adopted son.  Marsali is the daughter of Jamie’s previous wife Laoghaire (Nell Hudson) and Jamie is her stepfather. The two fell in love and followed Jamie and Claire (Balfe) from Scotland to America, where they went on to marry and have multiple children. </p>

<p id=”par-9_65″>Marsali and Fergus lived on Fraser’s Ridge with Claire and Jamie. But their life there was difficult, especially after one of their children was born with dwarfism. In <em>Outlander </em>Season 6, Fergus became despondent and started abusing alcohol. At one point, he considered taking his own life. Jamie intervened and arranged for the family to move to New Bern, where they got a fresh start. </p>

<p id=”par-10_34″>Because they are living away from Fraser’s Ridge, Marsali and Fergus didn’t appear in <em>Outlander </em>Season 7 Part 1. They also won’t appear in <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/outlander-season-7-part-2-ieven-better-than-part-1-claims-ep-maril-davis.html/”>season 7’s second half</a>, which will premiere in November 2024. </p>

<p id=”par-11_49″>“You know, Lauren was busy with a couple of other things as was Cesar so you know that was purposely in talking with those actors and where we decided to take this season, we don’t see their stories unfortunately,” Outlander executive producer Maril Davis told <a href=”https://www.the-express.com/entertainment/tv/111674/Outlander-season-8-Marsali-Fergus” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener”>Daily Express</a> in 2023. </p>

<p id=”par-12_23″>Fans of <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/outlander-boss-maril-davis-confirms-exactly-which-book-season-7-part-2-cover.html/”>Diana Gabaldon’s books</a> likely won’t be entirely surprised to learn that Marsali and Fergus will resurface for the show’s final season. </p>

<p id=”par-13_83″>The two characters and their family play and important role in both <em>An Echo in the Bone </em>and <em>Written in My Own Heart’s Blood, </em>which have both been adapted for season 7. Season 8 will be based on the ninth <em>Outlander </em>novel, <em>Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone. </em>But it’s possible the show will shift Fergus and Marsali’s story from the previous books into the final season. Fans will simply have to wait and see what’s next for them.   <em> </em></p>

<p id=”par-14_13″><em>Outlander </em>is streaming on Starz. Season 7 Part 2 will premiere in November. </p>
