Fresh off its impressive debut, Starz has renewed breakout hit Outlander for a second season, the network announced on Friday. "I'm thrilled at the prospect of doing another season of this show for Starz," showrunner Ronald D. Moore said in a statement. "This project has been a labor of love from the very beginning and it's incredibly gratifying to see it succeed with viewers and critics alike."
