Outlander is only getting bigger.
The hit Starz series, which co-stars Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe, has plans to expand with “a slew of spin-offs, sequels and story extensions,” Deadline reported on Tuesday (January 14).
“As long as the fans continue to crave the story, we’ll continue to have Outlander on the air. We are constantly talking to our partners at Sony and the show continues. We’re excited about season five and because we bought seasons five and six [together], we feel that arc is great and Ron and Meril are doing a great job,” said Starz president Jeffrey Hirsch.
“We think there’s a lot of opportunity in the Outlander universe to have story extensions, spin-offs or sequels, we continue to look at that and talk with our partners at Sony. Hopefully we’ll find something that feels great and that we can continue to tell that story,” he went on say.
“There are still many more books to go. We’re willing if the actors are willing,” executive producer Maril Davis added at the Winter TCA.
One fan-demanded storyline possibility revolves around Lord John Grey, a friend to the key characters.
“We just started to think about what the story is. There’s the next generation of cast in the show, which could be a rich story. We’ve tossed it around with Sony but there’s nothing in the development process,” Jeffrey Hirsch revealed.
