Starz has announced the adaptation of Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling books will have a second run of at least 13 episodes.
Season two will be based on the second in the eight-book series, Dragonfly in Amber.
“The overwhelming support Outlander has received from the fans, viewers and critics made the decision for us to go ahead with the second book a very easy one. Diana Gabaldon has given us years of great drama,” said Starz CEO Chris Albrecht.
“With an incredible artist such as Ronald D. Moore at the helm and a cast as spectacular as this, we look forward to continue this spell-binding journey with Claire, Jamie, Frank, Brianna, Roger and everybody over the centuries.”
Outlander also premiered in Australia on SoHo this week.
The first season of 16 episodes is being split in half, with the final eight set to screen in the US in early 2015.
