“Stopping the rebellion. Changing the future. All of it, it falls on you.” -- Claire Fraser (Caitriona Balfe).
We're only a few days away from the highly anticipated Season 2 premiere of Ron D. Moore's time-traveling series Outlander, and Starz has released a brand-new trailer and a Season 1 recap for the Golden Globe-nominated series.
The newest trailer puts the spotlight on our hero, Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), who, in order to save Scotland, has to navigate the treacherous waters of 18th-century Paris high society and stop the Young Pretender, Prince Charles Edward Stewart (Being Human's Andrew Gower), from fomenting the Jacobite rising of 1745 and put a stop to the chain of events that will lead to the Battle of Culloden and the destruction of the Scottish way of life.
Change the future.
That's the mission.
That's a pretty tall order right there, don't you think?
Starz has also debuted a cool new Season 1 recap titled “The Hands of Time.” So, if you want a quick refresher covering the main events of the 16-episode first season, or you're a new viewer and want to catch up, then this is just what the doctor ordered.
The video also offers a sneak peek of Season 2 right at the end, so make sure to stick around.
You can also have a look at a bunch of new character portraits featuring Outlander's power couple of Jamie and Claire as well as Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies), Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix), Mary Hawkins (Rosie Day), Louise de Rohan (Claire Sermone), le Comte St. Germain (Stanley Weber), King Louis XV (Lionel Lingelser), and Bonnie Prince Charlie (Andrew Gower).
Outlander returns April 9 on Starz. Are you ready?
