Forget the past. It’s time to rewrite history.
The full trailer for Outlander Season 2 has finally arrived and the show is firmly looking to the future for its lead couple. The Golden Globe-nominated fantasy series once again reunited Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan as nurse-out-of-time Claire Randall and period Scottish hunk Jamie Fraser. Based upon the second of eight books in Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling series of novels – Dragonfly in Amber – the new season as they arrive in France determined to infiltrate the Jacobite rebellion and stop the Battle of Culloden. Instead of swords and guns, they’re armed with political savvy and the finest 1700s Parisian fashion, as they embark on their new mission.
Thrown into the lavish world of French society, political gains prove tricky as Claire and Jamie endeavour to alter the course of the text books, while challenges weigh on the fabric of their relationship. With the help of Jamie’s cousin, Jared, a local wine merchant, and armed with the 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 (Doctors, Waterloo Road, Casualty) joins the cast as Brianna, the striking daughter of Jamie and Claire. She will star alongside returning actors Tobias Menzies, Graham McTavish, Gary Lewis, Duncan Lacroix and Rosie Day.
The show will again premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in the UK, with the first episode released on Sunday 10th April. Episode will then be added each Sunday, within 24 hours of their US broadcast on Starz.
