'Outlander' Renewed for Second Season By Starz!

The brand new Starz series Outlander has been renewed for a second season only one episode into the first season, the network announced today!

The second season will consist of 13 episodes and will be based on the second book in Diana Gabaldon’s “Outlander” series, titled “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. 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,” Starz CEO Chris Albrecht in a statement (via Variety).

Outlander stars John Heffernan, Nell Hudson, Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan. Check out Sam‘s Just Jared Spotlight feature in case you missed it!

Outlander's Sam Heughan Takes JJ's Spotlight - Scotland Edition! (Exclusive Pics)

Sam Heughan couldn’t be any hotter in this exclusive new pic from the latest edition of the Just Jared Spotlight Series.

The 34-year-old Scottish actor takes the lead in the brand new series Outlander, which was shot in his home country. The show has been getting absolute rave reviews and is a total must-see. Be sure to tune in this Saturday (August 9) at 9/8c on Starz to catch this heartthrob in action as Jamie Fraser.

Sam was photographed at the historic Dumbarton Castle, which has been in existence as far back as 1500 years! Fun fact about the castle, it sits atop a volcanic rock overlooking the Firth of Clyde. The castle has also acted as a refuge for royals over the years.

During our interview with Sam, we chatted about his upbringing in a rural section of Scotland, being named after a Lord of the Rings character, his favorite Scottish pasttime (hint: it’s not golf!), and of course, Outlander.

A big thank-you to Scotland’s National Tourism Organization for helping to facilitate the shoot and to Historic Scotland for giving us access to Dumbarton Castle.

Outlander's Sam Heughan Drops The Kilt for JJ Spotlight! (Behind the Scenes Photos)

Sam Heughan captures our attention with his beautiful eyes in this exclusive behind the scenes pic from the latest edition of the Just Jared Spotlight Series.

The 34-year-old actor was photographed on location at Dumbarton Castle in Scotland, where Sam has been hard at work recently on his new Starz series Outlander!

Sam is currently unknown to American audiences, but that surely won’t last for long once they see the heartthrob playing Jamie Fraser on the buzzed about new show.

Outlander follows the story of Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe), a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743, where she is immediately thrown into an unknown world where her life is threatened. When she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser (Heughan), a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate relationship is ignited that tears Claire’s heart between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

Make sure to watch the series premiere on Saturday (August 9) at 9/8c on Starz and check back with us on Thursday for our full exclusive Sam Heughan photo shoot and interview!
