Good news for the Outlander fans of the historical romance TV series because the epic romance between Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) will go on for at least two more season on Starz and continue to explore the time-travel romance that has brought impressive ratings to the network.
The show is currently in the middle of its second season and will continue to explore Diana Gabaldon‘s novels that inspired the first two seasons, this time focusing on “Voyager” and “Drums of Autumn.”
Sony Pictures Television executors Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg released a statement to announce the renewal:
“The audience has rewarded Outlander with their praise and loyalty, and we know we will deliver the best seasons yet in the years ahead.”
And Starz CEO Chris Albrecht released his own statement announcing the pickup:

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 [producer] Ronald D. Moore. There are no better storytellers for Outlander than this team, both in front and behind the camera.
