“Outlander” is setting its sights on a dramatic shift in Season 2. From the colors of the costumes to the relationship at the story’s core, the new season of the hit Starz original series looks to build upon the excitement generated around last year’s debut.
In the video above, stars Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe along with executive producer Ronald D. Moore discuss what’s to come in the new year, making big promises along the way. Anyone wary of learning the general outline for Season 2 should be warned, though: Light spoilers are included below.
The official synopsis from Starz reads: “‘Outlander’ spans the genres of romance, science fiction, history, and adventure as it follows Claire Randall, a married WWII combat nurse who mistakenly falls back in time to 1743. As the season continues, Claire and Jamie’s relationship is tested and Claire must reconcile her modern mindset with this 18th-century world. Ruthless redcoats, volatile clan politics, and a brutal witch trial force Jamie and Claire to escape to a new home. Just when their life as a married couple begins to take shape, Jamie is once again drawn into Captain Randall’s darkness. Ultimately, Claire discovers there is a fate worse than death as she struggles to save Jamie’s heart, as well as his soul.”
“Outlander” Season 2 begins in April 2016.
