Outlander: Season One Ratings

The cable channel has often given quick renewals but the series are then often cancelled after two seasons. Will Starz regret giving Outlander a second year order so soon? Would it have been cancelled if they had waited?

    Outlander is the best show ever! I hope it gets renewed for many more seasons! I never loved a show or books as much as I have enjoyed outlander!!

    I love the story! I am not a prude but I feel it is too explicit. The story is so beautiful and more time should be spent on things other than the negative. Looking forward to season 2!

    I loved the books and was very exited with the fact that the TV series was done. I think putting these books into a tv series was brilliant and could not wait to see it. I was attracted to this books for the fantastic story of going to the past and the future and the history attached. I liked the series but I did not like the fact that so much sex and nudity was included in the episodes. I do not think this was the main reason why people liked the story and contrary I think that took away the interest from many people. I wish the tv series would center more in showing the books content without having so much scenes of violence and nudity be the center of it. I would enjoy it more.

      Have you seem Jamie and Claire they make a beautiful couple and with a
      loving relationship comes sex. I thought it was very well done an hope they
      bring it back for another season.

      I enjoy the sex scenes and male nudity — I’ll admit that’s one of the reasons I watch. But I do wish they would develop the love story more. Jamie and Claire aren’t as close in the show as they are in the books. They seem very distant other than when they are having sex and it still feels too much like Claire’s true love is Frank.
