Outlander Season 2 will arrive on UK screens in April 2016 – and it will feature a new cast member in Sophie Skelton.
In case, for some inexplicable reason, you haven’t seen the show, it’s based on Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling books and follows Claire (Caitriona Balfe), a married World War II nurse who is thrown back in time from 1945 into 1743 Scotland, where she meets (and falls in love with) Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan).
The new season begins as Claire and Jamie arrive in France determined to infiltrate the Jacobite rebellion and stop the Battle of Culloden. Thrown into the lavish world of French society, political gains prove tricky as they endeavour to alter the course of history, amid challenges weighing on the fabric of their relationship. Armed with knowledge of what lies ahead, Claire and Jamie must race to prevent a doomed Highland uprising, and the extinction of Scottish life as they know it.
Sophie Skelton (Foyle’s War) will play the much-anticipated role of Brianna, the striking daughter of Jamie and Claire.
Starz announced the casting today, with a photo of Skelton released on Twitter. Amazon, meanwhile, has also published this photo of Claire in her new Season 2 garb.
How on earth is their daughter already so grown-up? That would likely require both time travel and some spoilers to answer… What we do know is that Skelton joins the previously announced Richard Rankin, who will play Roger Wakefield, while returning actors include Tobias Menzies as Black Jack, Graham McTavish (The Hobbit), Gary Lewis (Gangs of New York), Duncan Lacroix (Vikings) and Rosie Day (The Seasoning House).
Season 2 of Outlander will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in the UK in April 2016, with episodes arriving every week, hours after their US debut.
