Starz President Chris Albrecht Promises Many More Seasons Of ‘Outlander’

As the second most popular scripted series among female viewers–standing behind only the behemoth of Game of ThronesOutlander will continue beyond a Season 5 and even 6, Chris Albrecht CEO and president of Starz said at TCA on Friday.

The show follows time-traveling couple Claire and Jamie Fraser (Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan) and is based on a series of books by Diana Gabaldon. Season 4 has yet to air.

“There are ten books and the show’s going amazingly,” he said. “I think our biggest problem will be making sure that we don’t kill Caitriona and Sam along the way, they are working so hard, especially Caitriona, she’s amazing. The two of them are fantastic and so deserving of the accolades that they’ve gotten. We have joined legion of fans for Outlander around the world and our partners at Sony and we are having very productive discussions around the future of the show.”
