‘Outlander’ Returns This November for Season 4
Starz is also setting the show up for seasons 5 and 6
STARZ has set a premiere window for “Outlander” Season 4. The confirmation was made by Starz President and CEO Chris Albrecht.
The Golden Globe nominated STARZ Original series will premiere its fourth season this November 2018, and the network has renewed the hit series for an additional two new seasons. The new deal will bring new “Outlander” episodes to fans all the way through Season 6.
The cast and crew are already hard at work on Season 4. The fourth season of “Outlander” is currently shooting on location in Scotland and will include 13 episodes based upon Drums of Autumn, the fourth of eight books in Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling Outlander series. The upcoming season continues the romantic adventures of Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan).
“Fans can rest assured their beloved Claire and Jamie will be back facing new challenges, adversaries and adventures in seasons five and six as we delve into American history and continue the story of the Frasers as they settle in the New World,” said Albrecht.
The show has been a steady hit for the network, Season 3 averaged 5.8M multiplatform viewers per episode, while averaging 5.1 million multiplatform viewers for all three seasons. In 2017, “Outlander” was the second-most viewed premium scripted series among women (behind “Game of Thrones”), and was regularly a Top 5-rated cable drama with women. According to the network, “Outlander” is one of only six current premium scripted series to increase its episode premiere ratings in Season 3 from Season 1.
You can stream the first three seasons if you’ve fallen behind. The drama is based on Diana Gabaldon’s eight-book Outlander series that has sold an estimated 30M copies worldwide. All the books have hit the New York Times best-sellers list.
Starz stopped short of giving us an exact premiere date for Season 4, but we will get a firm date as we get closer to November.
