Starz has renewed “Outlander” for Seasons 3 and 4. The time-travel drama stars Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan and is executive produced by Ronald D. Moore. The genre-bending show is based on the series of novels by Diana Gabaldon, with each season adapting one tome from Gabaldon’s eight-book series, which is ongoing.
Season 3 will adapt Gabaldon’s “Voyager,” while Season 4 will be based on “Drums of Autumn.”
Starz CEO Chris Albrecht sasys of the renewal, “‘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.
“On this 25th anniversary of the publication of the first book in the U.S., we are thrilled and honored to be able to continue the story that began with author Diana Gabaldon, and is brought to life by the incredibly talented Ronald D. Moore. There are no better storytellers for ‘Outlander’ than this team, both in front and behind the camera.”
Season 2 of “Outlander” is currently airing on Starz. There’s no word yet on premiere dates for Season 3 or 4.
