With Season 6 of ‘Outlander’ due to premiere on March 6 and the seventh season already in the works, a prequel to the historical drama series is in the works at a major television network, according to ‘Variety.’ Matthew B. Roberts is expected to write and executive produce the prequel.
‘Outlander’ is based on the ongoing novel series of the same name by Diana Gabaldon, who recently teased in a Facebook post about working on a prequel novel about Ellen MacKenzie and Brian Fraser, the parents of Jamie Fraser – the main character from ‘Outlander’. Currently, a writers’ room is being assembled for the project which is set to begin work in the coming weeks.
According to ‘Variety’, the exact plot details with regards to the prequel and its focal point haven’t been revealed yet. Ronald D. Moore, who developed the show for television, will also executive produce along with Maril Davis under their Tall Ship Productions banner.
The series remains one of the premium cabler’s most popular shows. As with ‘Outlander‘, Sony Pictures Television will be the studio.
