The hit Starz TV series “Outlander” will air in the UK. The show was previously available only on Amazon Prime Video, but it will now air on More4. Channel 4 has acquired the rights to air the show from Sony Pictures Television, according to a press release.

Fans in the UK will start enjoying the 16 episodes of the first season later this month. The acquisition comes just in time for fans eagerly waiting for season 3. Viewers can spend the next two months watching the first two seasons again, then watch the third season when it airs in September.

With global viewership increasing every day, producers have something to cheer about. Co-executive producer Maril Davis shared online the song “Nothing Gonna Stop Us Now” by the American rock band Starship from the 1980s as the anthem od the day.

Co-executive producer Matthew B. Roberts was also in a chirpy mood. He shared online the funk song “September” by Earth, Wind & Fire from the 1990s,  saying it  was his suggestion for an “Outlander” anthem. The cast and crew are happy because the production is so far going smoothly. They will be wrapping up in South Africa in the next few days.

Diana Gabaldon was asked by a fan about the highly anticipated Print Shop scene. The author said that she is happy with what they have filmed, and this comment started an interesting online conversation joined by both Sam Heughan (Jamie) and Caitriona Balfe (Claire). See the conversation below.

“Outlander” has been picked up for season 4. But eager fans want Starz to renew the show for season 5 and 6, too. When Richard Rankin (Roger Wakefield) was asked about it, the actor said that fans should let the cast and crew finish season 3 first.

In case you missed it:

“Outlander” season 3 will be the end of at least a few characters; however, the performance of one particular actor has impressed the producers so much they are considering to bring him back in the future.
