Last night, “Outlander” season 1 went on hiatus, and it will stay that way for a long, long time. Seriously. We just got eight episodes, and now we have a hiatus that is going to last for the next seven months. That’s almost a month an episode, as crazy and insane as that sounds.
Unfortunately, we don’t feel like the new promo below via Starz is really going to offer you a whole lot more in the way of insight about the story that lies ahead. Instead, what you have here is just a series of scenes, and then a reminder that the show is going to return on Saturday, April 4.
Hopefully, the silver lining here is that there will be a smaller wait between the end of season 1, and then the beginning of season 2. Then, the only bummer is that season 2 is only 13 episodes versus 16, which really should not be that bad when you remember that this is the length of most cable shows. This series just got lucky venturing into “Walking Dead” territory when it comes to its overall episode count.
For book readers, just know that many of the scenes that you expect (including some of the grisly ones) are still ahead. Meanwhile, those watching the show and experiencing the story for the first time should know that there are many moments ahead that may continue to shock and surprise. Most of the characters will be back from this current run, but then a few others for good measure.
