That’s right “Outties”…after we’ve just gotten all hot and bothered over Claire and Jamie’s wedding and with this week’s midseason finale looming…Starz has just announced that there will be a ‘wee bit’ of a mid-season break and our favorite Sassenach and gorgeous kilt-wearing Scot will NOT be back till NEXT Spring!! What?? How can they do this to us?

Outlander’s Highly Anticipated Wedding Episosde Delivers Highest Ratings of the Season with 3.8 Million Live +3 Viewers, Up Almost 40% Since Premiere with Season One Averaging 5 million viewers per episode to date!

However tortuous this may seem to us fans…I suspect the long hiatus might be because they’ve yet to shoot the ‘back 9’. I don’t know…I’m just guessing. Either way Outlander is coming back in a big way next Spring…and I can’t wait because like the millions of viewers that tuned in for “The Wedding”…I’m hooked!

Approximately 3.8 million viewers tuned in for the series highly-anticipated seventh episode, titled “The Wedding,” to finally witness the beloved characters Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) become man and wife in 18th century Scotland.

It follows Claire Randall as she navigates the hidden dangers of 18th century Scotland, an unknown world where her freedom and very life are at risk. When she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser, a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate affair is ignited that tears Claire’s heart between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

“Outlander” will return with the remaining eight episodes from season one on Saturday, April 4th, 2015.

    Heard good things about this series. Hope it does well but for many of us it means waiting for the DVD since many of us don’t have Starz. I already pay enough for what I do get on TV and I’d have to upgrade again to get this station.
