The future is bright for "Outlander."
Fans worried that Starz has yet to order a fifth season of the time-traveling romance fantasy epic can breathe easy. The show's creator, Ronald D. Moore, told the audience at a "For Your Consideration" panel that the "usual negotiations and conversations" are taking place with the network and should be resolved in a satisfactory manner.
"We are certainly going to do it. I have no doubt we are doing a season 5," he said.
The third season concluded last December and filming is currently underway on Season 4, which is expected to premiere in the fall.
Moore, who ceded day-to-day showrunning duties last season to Matt B. Roberts and Toni Graphia, said the writers have already begun to think about Season 5.
"Every year we approach it fresh," Moore told Entertainment Weekly. "Should we keep it a book a season? We've done that up until now. But we've talked about splitting books, and we've talked about combining them. We want to be free in the writers' room to pick and choose and do what feels most comfortable that year."
