The new season begins with Claire (Caitriona Balfe)and Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) arrival in France, intent on infiltrating the Jacobite rebellion led by Prince Charles Stuart and stopping the battle of Culloden. The footage reveals Claire is still stuck in her alternate worlds: in the present she’s on her way to America with her first husband Frank (Tobias Menzies).
Based on Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling books, Outlander follows the story of Claire Randall (Balfe), a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743, where she immediately is thrown into an unknown world where her life is threatened. When she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser (Heughan), a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate affair is ignited that tears Claire’s heart between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
Season 2 premieres in April on Starz.
