Chris Larkin reprises his role as Richard Brown, Lauren Lyle is Marsali, and César Domboy is Fergus.

But new faces have been introduced this series in the form of the Christie family.

Mark Lewis Jones plays Tom Christie, one of Jamie’s “ancient foes” who is set to bring drama to the Ridge.

Jessica Reynolds has been cast as Tom’s daughter Malva, and Alexander Vlahos will play his son Allen.

Caitriona Balfe told Entertainment Weekly: “Outlander does baddies and villains quite well. [The Christies] aren't your typical villains, which is great and refreshing.”

The actress added: “It's a really heartbreaking, but a really twisted narrative that they all get embroiled in."
