Renewed: Outlander

2014-08-16_0157Less than a week after its TV premiere, Outlander has been renewed for a second season.

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.

  1. So glad to hear this news. The books are fantastic but there was some trepedation when there was talk of a TV Series. I can’t wait to see it now.

  2. i watched Outlander last night and will keep watching. It looks like a well made fantasy romance. There were some scenes where the direction wasn’t great in the second half though.

    It takes two years to see if a US cable drama will do OK because the good ones grow by word of mouth. So as long as the premiere doesn’t bomb they sometime renew them early so that the publicity increases viewing and word of mouth and lets the audience know they an commit to it.
