It will be based on Diana Gabaldon’s’s second Outlander novel, “Dragonfly in Amber.”

Said Starz CEO Chris Albrecht in confirming the news: 

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."

Outlander Season 1 Episode 1 set a ratings record for the network and creator Ronald D. Moore says he's "thrilled at the prospect" of producing many more installments.

Outlander Quotes

Sing me a song, of a lass that is gone.
Say, could that lass be I?
Merry of soul she sailed on a day
Over the sea to Skye.

Theme song to Outlander

Don't play the worm with me. Jamie, I just want this to be a pleasant experience for us both.
