Starting 10th April 2016, fans of the show will get a new episode every week and won’t have to worry too much about spoilers flooding in from the US. The 13-episode second season will see Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan return as Claire Randell and Jamie Fraser respectively.
The new season begins as Claire and Jamie 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 – infiltrating the French aristocracy and rewriting history.
Thrown into the lavish world of French society, political gains prove tricky as Claire and Jamie endeavour to alter the course of history, amid challenges weighing on the fabric of their relationship. With the help of his cousin Jared, a local wine merchant, Jamie and Claire are thrown into the lavish world of French society, 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.
Outlander is based on Diana Gabaldon’s hugely successful series Dragonfly in Amber. The new season is again executively produced by Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: The Next Generation).
Sophie Skelton (Doctors, Waterloo Road, Casualty) has joined the cast for its second season and returning actors include Tobias Menzies (Casino Royale), Graham McTavish (The Hobbit, Creed, Rambo), Gary Lewis (Gangs of New York, Filth), Duncan Lacroix (Vikings, Game of Thrones) and Rosie Day (The Seasoning House).
New episodes of Outlander will launch weekly exclusively in the UK on Amazon Prime Video from 10th April 2016. Find out more about the new season below:
