May 5 it is for all those interested. This comes after The White Queen and The White Princess. It is strange to me these haven't gotten a over arching name and the season just been the different books. These follow the Tudor book series by Phillipa Gregory as does the movie The Other Boleyn Girl. The Spanish Princess will actually be a combination of the books The Constant Princess and The King's Curse and will tell the story of Catherine of Aragon, Henry VIII's first wife.
If you head over to Amazon you will see they've set the release of all versions of Outlander season 4 for May 28, 2019. I haven't seen a formal announcement of this fact but Amazon is usually pretty reliable with their information. Consider this, they are already taking pre-orders which heavily implies this is the actual release date for season 4.

Honestly, I had no idea what this could mean with the story broke that Starz CEO Chris Albrecht would be stepping down. Albrecht is the reason for the programming currently on Starz and one of the first decisions he made was to get into business with Ronald D. Moore and that is how Outlander was born on Starz.
Lionsgate acquired Starz back in 2016. Lionsgate was after a platform for their content which includes The Hunger Game Series, The Twilight Saga, and Orange Is the New Black. From the gist of Outlander Cast's article it seems the decision to oust Albrecht is really about having control over programming. And it seems Lionsgate isn't keen on things they don't own and as we know Sony owns Outlander.
Does this mean we could lose Outlander? Blake over at Outlander Cast is sure we'll get Season 5 since production has started and we might even get Season 6 because it was promised but they might not be interested in giving us additional Outlander if it isn't a show Lionsgate owns.
This is just a very condensed version of the Outlander Cast article and I highly recommend you go over and read it or listen to their podcast episode about this fiasco.
There are a lot of things that can be assumed about the next season of Outlander but here are a few reminders of things that we know we will be seeing. If you aren't at all worried about spoilers there is a box you can click on to get the book related "things we know" but otherwise I recommend show fan stay away from the spoilers.
1. It is likely going to be based on the fifth book of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series called The Fiery Cross. Of course, we are unsure if we'll get the entire book or part of the book. You may not know this but this is the longest book of the first 5 by nearly 400 pages so it stands to reason we will not be seeing the entire book. Also, the PTBs (powers that be - ie our executive producers) have mentioned it might be easier to break up the books a little. I'm rather keen on this idea as I think it would make things feel less rushed.
2. Both season 5 and 6 will have only 12 episodes each. Season 1 had 16 and 2 through 4 had 13. However, standard season on premium channels tend to be 10 or 12. Outlander has been an exception. Losing an episode does support them taking on portions of book rather than the whole.
Richard Rankin will be showcasing prints from his travels in a new exhibit. The exhibit which is called "His Mind's Eye," will be opening March 27 at the Littlefield Gallery NYC, Brooklyn, NY.
The exhibit will have a interactive element which allows visitors to take photos of themselves to be used in a future collection.

US Outlander fans. Starz will be showing a marathon of all 13 episodes Season 4 starting January 27 at 8am and ending with the season finale.
Spread the word.
Diana Gabaldon, author of the Outlander series, recently announced on Twitter book 9 of the series (Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone) will be out in 2019. Your elation can be short-lived once you realize there are 365 days in 2019. Sure the book is coming sometime in the next year but are we looking at Spring, Summer, or Fall?
Still this is reason to be joyous as the last book, Written In My Own Heart's Blood, came out June 10, 2014. So that particular droughtlander is coming to a close. But as Herself said, "Book 10 will be along summat later...' Are we looking at 2024 which might just make it under the wire to finish off the TV series?
"The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance tells a new story, set many years before the events of the 1982 Jim Henson movie, and uses classic puppetry with cutting-edge visual effects.
Leading the cast are Taron Egerton (Kingsman), Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch), and Nathalie Emmanuel (Game of Thrones) as Rian, Brea, and Deet, three Gelfling heroes.
But wait, there’s also: Caitriona Balfe (Outlander), Helena Bonham-Carter (The King’s Speech), Harris Dickinson (forthcoming Maleficent 2), Natalie Dormer (Game of Thrones), Eddie Izzard (Ocean’s Thirteen), Theo James (The Divergent Series), Toby Jones (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Shazad Latif (Star Trek: Discovery), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (The Cloverfield Paradox), Mark Strong (Kingsman) and Alicia Vikander (Tomb Raider).
That’s kinda overwhelming, right? But wait, Netflix reached even deeper into their money pockets. Because there’s also Mark Hamill (Knightfall, Star Wars), Harvey Fierstein (Torch Song), Ralph Ineson (Game of Thrones), Jason Isaacs (The OA), Keegan-Michael Key (Key and Peele), Ólafur Darri Ólafsson (True Detective), Simon Pegg (Mission Impossible) and Andy Samberg (Brooklyn Nine Nine).
Explains Netflix vp of original series Cindy Holland: “To match the stunning visual world of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, we knew we had to entice some incredible voice talent to add dimension to the exquisite artistry of the puppeteers who bring the characters to life. I am proud to say that this may be one of the finest casts assembled from the world’s favorite TV shows and movies, and I am now even more excited for fans to come back to Thra with us, and for new viewers to discover this world for the very first time.”
Here’s the official story description: “The world of Thra is dying. The Crystal of Truth is at the heart of Thra, a source of untold power. But it is damaged, corrupted by the evil Skeksis, and a sickness spreads across the land. When three Gelfling uncover the horrific truth behind the power of the Skeksis, an adventure unfolds as the fires of rebellion are lit and an epic battle for the planet begins.”
The 10-episode series, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, premieres in 2019."

"We decided fairly early on that part of the story would involve Frank because in talking about Brianna's journey and her going back, the fact that she's never met her birth father and was raised by another man for the first 20 years of her life and that's the only father she's ever known . . . how torn she would feel, as a character?" says Davis, adding that Brianna is wrestling with feelings of guilt over her perceived betrayal of the man who raised her.
