With Outlander Season 3 and Season 4 confirmed, the show’s creators teased about what’s to come in the upcoming episodes.
According to Outlander producer Matt Roberts, the show’s writers are already working hard to develop the story for Season 3, which is based on Diana Gabaldon’s novel, Voyager.
“Outlander is a beast of a show to produce, so if we took a normal break, a regular hiatus like a normal show, we would already be behind,” Roberts said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “Now the fans can have it sooner than what they think. The Droughtlander won’t be as long as they expect.
Outlander Season 2 premiered around one year after the premier season concluded. Unlike the first season which took a six-month mid-season break, all 13 Outlander Season 2 episodes will air consecutively until July 2 on Starz.

“Just knowing what’s coming up in Voyager, I really enjoyed the Lord John and Jamie dynamic in that book,” Roberts said. “It adds a lot to Outlander to have that odd friendship that they forge.” More of Claire’s PTSD will also be explored in Outlander Season 3.
Starz CEO Chris Albrecht announced the continuation of Outlander last week. According to Deadline, Albrecht described the show as “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,” Albrecht said.
The third season will be based on the book Voyager while the fourth book will be based on Drums of Autumn. The Outlander cast is headlined by Caitriona Balfe who played Claire Beauchamp and Sam Heughan as Jamie Fraser.
Outlander Season 2 airs every Saturday night on Starz.
