The popular TV series Outlander has an incredible premise: While on her honeymoon in Scotland, in 1945, a combat nurse named Claire Randall is suddenly transported back to the 1700s. It’s based on the series of historical romance novels by Diana Gabaldon. After a mid-season break, Outlander returns on Saturday, April 4 at 9pm on Starz.
The producer and showrunner of Outlander is Ronald D. Moore. He knows what works in fantasy and sci-fi. He was the former writer and producer for Star Trek: The Next Generation, and producer and showrunner of Battlestar Galactica. He told Variety that he’s “very curious to see how people react” to Outlander this season. “The (first) book ends in a very dark, disturbing, harrowing place, and we went for that,” he said. “I think we pulled it off.”
