The historical, time-traveling – how do you even explain the plot, really? – drama-packed show is set to return in September, it was announced today. The last two seasons have dropped in April, so what gives with the delay?

“While Droughtlander will last just a little longer, we feel it is important to allow the production the time and number of episodes needed to tell the story of the Voyager book in its entirety,” Starz network exec Carmi Zlotnik said in a statement.

“The scale of this book is immense, and we owe the fans the very best show. Returning in September will make that possible.”

The show is set to resume filming in South Africa next month, and is expected to be finished by June.

But we want it nowwwwww!
