Starz network boss Jeffrey Hirsch previously revealed that fans will still have a while to wait for the new season of Outlander while chatting at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. He explained: "The delay is mainly due to scheduling at the network. The decision behind everything that we do in terms of our programming schedule, obviously, is based on delivery schedules. We try to have something on the air to serve that premium female audience. So we have some shows coming before that serve the Power audience." The series follows a 20th century woman, Claire, who falls through time while on holiday in Scotland, only to find herself in 1743. While trying to find a way back home, she falls in love with highlander Jamie, and the pair set about changing the course of history together.
