What’s This TV Show About?
A Starz time travel drama, Outlander stars Caitriona Balfe as Claire Randall and Sam Heughan as Jamie Fraser. The cast also includes Tobias Menzies, Duncan Lacroix, Lotte Verbeek, Laura Donnelly, Steven Cree, Grant O’Rourke, Richard Rankin, and Sophie Skelton.
Outlander, season three, is based on the third novel in Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander book series, Voyager. It picks up right after Claire (Balfe) leaves Jamie (Heughan) behind in the 18th century. Once she travels through the stones, back to her life in 1948, she has a lot to work out. Now expecting Jamie’s baby, Claire must deal with her first husband, Frank (Menzies), and his reaction to her disappearance and return. Meanwhile, back in time, Jamie struggles with the aftermath of his doomed last stand at the Battle of Culloden, as well as the loss his soul mate.

Fans don’t have to worry if Outlander will be cancelled or renewed for season four. Starz already picked up the fourth installment, back in 2016. And although its demo numbers dropped off slightly in season two, the total audience grew. Since Starz relies on paid subscribers, not ad revenue, it cares more about the latter measure.
