Starz has announced a return date for its Scottish highland drama “Outlander,” and it’s later than you might expect.
The eight episode, first half of the show’s first season goes to air this weekend. Then the show will take a break for almost a full six months before return for the remaining eight episodes of the first season on April 4th 2015.
The series has already been renewed for a second season. The most recent episode pulled in 3.8 million viewers in Live+3 numbers, up 38% from its series premiere and it has been a very strong performer for Starz.
The show joins the network’s three other returning in 2015 dramas – the pirate action series “Black Sails,” the period adventure drama “Da Vinci’s Demons,” and the drug trade drama “Power”.
