Starz Renews 'Outlander' For A Second Season
Starz has renewed Outlander for a second season. The size of the pick up has not been finalised, but Starz said that the show’s second season would consist of at least thirteen episodes, down from the sixteen for the show’s freshman run. The network also confirmed that the second season would be based on Dragonfly In Amber, the second book in Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander novel series. The Season Two renewal comes less than a week after Outlander premiered to record ratings on Starz.
