THE UK launch date for the second series of Golden Globe nominated Outlander has been revealed.
Amazon has today announced fans of the Scottish filmed-show will have to wait till April 10th for the second series.
The new episodes will be released weekly, a day after they air in the US on channel Starz.
The eagerly awaited second instalment will be thirteen episodes long and will once again star Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan as Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser.
Based upon the second of eight books in Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling Outlander series, entitled Dragonfly in Amber, the new series begins as Claire and Jamie arrive in France determined to infiltrate the Jacobite rebellion and stop the Battle of Culloden.
Instead of swords and guns, they’re armed with political savvy and the finest 1700s Parisian fashion as they embark on their new mission - infiltrating the French aristocracy and rewriting history.
Thrown into the lavish world of French society, political gains prove tricky as Claire and Jamie endeavour to alter the course of history, amid challenges weighing on the fabric of their relationship.
With the help of Jamie’s cousin Jared, a local wine merchant, and 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.
Sophie Skelton (Doctors, Waterloo Road, Casualty) joins the cast and returning actors include Tobias Menzies (Casino Royale), Graham McTavish (The Hobbit, Creed, Rambo), Gary Lewis (Gangs of New York, Filth), Duncan Lacroix (Vikings, Game of Thrones) and Rosie Day (The Seasoning House).
