Fans Excited About ‘Outlander’ 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.”
Each of the show’s seasons follow one of Diana Gabaldon’s books, of which there are nine. Season 2 is following the events of “Dragonfly In Amber,” and Seasons 3 and 4 will follow “Voyager” and “Drums of Autumn,” for those fans whom have read the novels.
