Last year the Outlander TV show on Starz saw a dramatic increase in the Nielsen ratings. Consequently, the network gave it an early renewal through both its fifth and sixth seasons. While we don’t have to worry whether Outlander will be cancelled or renewed for season five,, we’re left to wonder whether it can keep on growing, or if it has reached its peak. We’re keeping an eye on the ratings during the fourth season, so stay tuned.
An historical time travel drama, Outlander, stars Caitriona Balfe as Claire Randall and Sam Heughan as Jamie Fraser. The Starz cast also includes Sophie Skelton, Richard Rankin, David Berry, John Bell, Ed Speleers, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Cesar Domboy, Lauren Lyle, Colin McFarlane, Natalie Simpson, Kyle Rees, and Tim Downie.
Outlander, season season four, is based on the third novel in Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander book series, Drums of Autumn. It continues the story of time-traveling 20th Century doctor Claire Fraser and her 18th Century Scots Highlander husband Jamie Fraser, as they try to make a home in colonial America. Meanwhile, back in the 20th century, daughter Brianna Randall (Skelton) and historian Roger Wakefield (Rankin) search for historical proof that Claire and Jamie were able to reunite in the past.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.
