Now that we are all happy to have Season 5 & 6 in our future, we need to look at the other bit of information Starz gave us. Namely the episode number. According to the contracts for 5 & 6 they have a total of 24 episodes for these season which means 12 episodes a season. What does that mean going forward?
We have renewal people! Starz confirmed on their twitter account not only the renewal of Season 5 but Season 6 as well. Book fans will know that if they continue down this path of a book a season that will take us into A Breath of Snow and Ashes. However, Ron Moore has mused that they are considering splitting books up just to be able to really get into the action of what is to come in the series.
But their tweet has another unexpected bit of news. They announced that they didn't want to wait until Season 4 started in November to tell us about the renewal of 5 & 6. Or was that their sneaky way of telling us that September just isn't an option but hey you are going to get an additional 2 seasons!
Either way. I'm actually happy. I'd rather Outlander not start with all the fall shows as it makes life very overwhelming. But then having Outlander on during Thanksgiving and Christmas is also a bit overwhelming but also really great gifts from Starz. I'll take it.
