Here is a NEW Interview with Ron D. Moore from Deadline

From Deadline:

EXCLUSIVE: On the eve of the Golden Globe nominations being announced, tonight’s sweeping, sultry and almost human sacrificing Season 3 finale of Outlander has brought Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser to 18th century America.

More after the jump!

After a viewership-high hitting season that played out the reunion of the Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan-portrayed lovers over time and space, the Ronald D. Moore-developed Starz series based on Diana Gabaldon’s novels is set to plant a flag on a very different landscape than before. With a move to Sunday nights and a fall premiere this season starting on September 10, the 2015 Golden Globe-nominated Best Drama Series saw double-digit increases overall and a multi-platform average audience of 5.7 million for its 13-episode run.

“We saw evidence of people going back and discovering the show for the first time, and it’s just great, says EP Moore of the success that Outlander experienced this season. “It’s that perfect sort of alignment of all the various gears that make a successful television show go, finally catching fire with each other and moving forward, the former Battlestar Galactica EP added.

With that, Moore chatted with me about the big canvas end of Season 3, what to expect for Season 4 and when a fifth season renewal is coming. Additionally, the EP unveiled if Tobias Menzies would be back for Season 4 now that his Frank Randall character is dead and what it was like producing and writing for Amazon’s upcoming Philip K Dick’s Electric Dreams. He also revealed why he thinks Season 3 of Outlander succeedes and what the show’s Golden Globe chances look like to him this year.

DEADLINE: So, Outlander has truly come to America with Claire and Jamie washed up on the shores of what will be Georgia – what does that mean for the series going forward into Season 4?
MOORE: Well, it shifts the whole foundation of the show. Outlander has always been perceived as a show about Scotland and about the UK. And with this shift, it really does shift the whole foundation of the show to the American colonies. That will be sort of the primary story going forward for the rest of the show because that’s where the rest of the books took place.
The show’s always going to have a foot in Scotland. It’s not going to completely abandon like Lallybroch and Inverness and some of the stories back there, but you know the balance of the story and the weight of the story is definitely going to be in America from now on.

  1. Where is the rest of the interview?

  2. Thank you for sharing the interview. Season 3 is now finished – after a long wait for it to come to TV and now it is over. It has yet to sink in that we have another wait till the Fall of 2018 for Season 4. Season 3 was brilliant, beautifully put together, Sam and Caitriona played their roles brilliantly, and we got to make new friends with new support actors. I loved the sea storm and the look that passed between Jamie and Claire when they saw that wall of angry ocean coming right at them. An amazing Season Finale to a brilliant show.
