Today’s announcement from Starz doesn’t really come as a surprise to fans of the hit series.
Starz Chief Executive Officer Chris Albrecht announced today the network has ordered “Book Three” and “Book Four” for its original series Outlander.
The series is executive produced by Ronald D. Moore and adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s international bestselling books.
“Book Three” will be based on the third of the eight books in the Outlander series, entitled Voyager, followed by “Book Four” based on the fourth book in the series, Drums of Autumn.
CEO of Starz Chris Albrecht said, “’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.
