Starz Decides to Torture OUTLANDER Fans, Sets Midseason Premiere for April

What, Starz? What is this? What are you trying to do to us? Kill us? Murder us with anticipation? Wasn’t the build-up from “The Wedding” enough? First, you hit us with but a few episodes of your long-awaited series, Outlander, only to take it away following the mid-season finale that is this upcoming Saturday. It hurt our heart to hear the news but we figured, eh, what’s the longest they would make us wait? Maybe til January? NOPE. April. April 4th, to be exact. Which is maybe the worst bit of news we’ve heard, ever, today.

That’s right, after a mere 7 — well, 8 after the finale — episodes, Outlander will end and we’ll have to wait 190 days before we ever get a chance to see what’s become of our time traveling sassenach. For SHAME, Starz! For shaaaaaaaame!

There’s one caveat though, at least: they sent us a new photo! And it’s super-spoiler-y so if you’re not a fan of those we’d suggest turning around tout de suite. But if you just can’t get enough of the series, then surely you’ll be happy to see what looks to be a delightful development — at least for poor Claire and her confoundingly split life.


Looks like she made it to the rocks after all! But will she cross back over to her time? Will she be reunited with her first husband at last? Are we secretly sort of glad that there’s all this time between the two halves of the season now so we can download and read the books? SO MANY HYPOTHETICALS, so little time!

What do you think about this awful development? Let us know in the comments.

    6 months is better than a year like all the cable shows that give us 10 episodes and then a year later another 10. This is 8 with a 6 month wait for another 8 episodes. Then season 2 will be here sooner.

  2. Jennatailya says:

    They’re probably pushing it back to April because it did so well they want to tie a new series to it. 

  3. Jill says:

    I’ve read the books. Many times. Bring on more of the pretty pictures.

  4. I can’t *chokes* I….*faints*

  5. Lindsay says:

    The books have been out forever. If you don’t want to wait, turn off the tv and pick up a book. 
    Personally when networks have too much time between episodes I tend to lose interest and they lose a fan.
