‘Outlander’ Renewed for Two More Seasons
Their love story has defied imprisonment, torture, and time—and now, fans can look forward to more of Claire and Jamie’s epic love story, as Starz announced that it is renewing Outlander for two more seasons.
Seasons 3 and 4 will be based on the books Voyager and Drums of Autumn from Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling series. The show, which stars Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan, follows a nurse from 1945 who mysteriously ends up in the Scottish Highlands in 1743. The second season, which has Claire and Jamie attempting to stop the battle of Culloden in France, premiered in April, and set a new Starz viewing record for an original series/season premiere.
“Outlander is like nothing seen before on television. From its depiction of a truly powerful female lead character, to the devastating decimation of the Highlander way of life, to what is a rarely seen genuine and timeless love story, it is a show that not only transports the viewer, but inspires the passion and admiration of its fans,” Starz CEO Chris Albrecht said in a statement.
