Droughtlander is almost over! Starz announced season two of the romantic time-traveling drama Outlander will premiere on April 9, 2016. The announcement of the premiere date was accompanied by the first official poster for the second season of the award-winning series starring Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe and by the release of a new trailer.
The Outlander Season Two Plot:
Season two of Outlander begins as Claire (Balfe) and Jamie (Heughan) arrive in France, hell-bent on infiltrating the Jacobite rebellion led by Prince Charles Stuart, and stopping the battle of Culloden. With the help of his cousin Jared, a local wine merchant, Jamie and Claire are thrown into the lavish world of French society, where intrigue and parties are abundant, but political gain proves far less fruitful. Altering the course of history presents challenges that begin to weigh on the very fabric of their relationship. However, 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.
