Deadline revealed today that Starz has renewed their critically acclaimed series Outlander for a fifth and sixth season. This news was revealed while Season 4 is still being filmed.
Seasons 5 and 6 will be inspired by Diana Gabaldon’s The Fiery Cross and A Breath of Snow and Ashes novels from the Outlander series.
Last time on Season 3 of Outlander:
The story picks up right after Claire (Caitriona Balfe) travels through the stones to return to her life in 1948. Now pregnant with Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) child, she struggles with the fallout of her sudden reappearance and its effect on her marriage to her first husband, Frank (Tobias Menzies).
Meanwhile, in the 18th century, Jamie suffers from the aftermath of his doomed last stand at the historic battle of Culloden, as well as the loss of Claire. As the years pass, Jamie and Claire attempt to make a life apart from one another, each haunted by the memory of their lost love. The budding possibility that Claire can return to Jamie in the past breathes new hope into Claire’s heart… as well as new doubt.
Separated by continents and centuries, Claire and Jamie must find their way back to each other. As always, adversity, mystery, and adventure await them on the path to reunion. And the question remains: When they find each other, will they be the same people who parted at the standing stones, all those years ago?
Season 4 of Outlander is set to premiere November 2018. What do you think of this news? Let us know in the comments below.
