“Outlander” fans have a reason to rejoice. Starz officially announced Friday (Aug. 15) that a second season, or “Book Two” of the hit drama, has been greenlit.
“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. 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,” says Starz CEO Chris Albrecht in a press release.
Season 2 will be no fewer than 13 episodes and based upon the second book in the “Outlander” series, “Dragonfly in Amber.” That news should get fans talking since — spoilers! — there are some big time shifts in the second book from the first.
“Outlander” airs Saturdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Starz.
