The first season of OUTLANDER was centered around the Scottish highlands, but when the show returns the action will move to the decadent French court of the 18th century.
Jamie and Claire Fraser sailed off to a new life in France at the end of the first season and they will be attempting to change the future and stop the slaughter of the Scottish people. Will they succeed? History — and the new cast photo below — shows us that they will have to contend with some powerful and scheming Parisian aristocrats.
Here’s what we know about the upcoming return: “The key art below depicts Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) surrounded by (left to right) Mary Hawkins (Rosie Day); King Louis XV (Lionel Lingelser); Louise de Rohan (Claire Sermonne); Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix); Le Comte St Germain (Stanley Weber) and Prince Charles Stuart (Andrew Gower). Claire and Jamie are attempting to change history, by stopping the battle of Culloden, through flattery, manipulation and politics. The Frasers are fighting this war – not on the battlefield – but in the courts of King Louis.”
OUTLANDER returns on April 9 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on Starz.
