Outlander Season 3 Is Coming Sooner Than You Consider

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,” producer and writer Matt Roberts told The Hollywood Reporter. “Now the fans can have it sooner than what they think. The Droughtlander won’t be as long as they expect.”

Great news, Outlander fans! The Droughtlander won’t be long this year thanks to Starz’s decision to renew the drama for an additional two seasons.

As to whether Outlander will be expanding its universe like the novels, which feature a spin-off series focused on Lord John “William” Grey (Oscar Kennedy), Roberts remained more opaque.

“Oddly enough, we always joke about spinoffs, whether it’s Lord John or Black Jack [Tobias Menzies] or this person or that person, because there is just so much material,” Roberts said.

However, the joking remains just that for now. “We haven’t really discussed it seriously if we could do that, but that would be something for Starz to order before we could start talking about it seriously. But we know there’s a whole line of books that Diana wrote about just that one character, so it was great to have his introduction in my script. ”

Are you excited for a shorter Droughtlander? And would you watch a Lord John spin-off?
