Outlander: Season Two
April 9th 2016 | Amazon Prime Video | On Demand
April 9th is the launch date for Season Two of the Golden Globe nominated series Outlander. Amazon Prime members in the UK will have exclusive access to the new episodes as they are released weekly, a day after they air in the US on Starz.
The eagerly awaited second installment will be thirteen episodes long and will once again star Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan as Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser. Based upon "Dragonfly in Amber", the second of the eight books in Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling Outlander series.
The new season 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 his cousin Jared, a local wine merchant, Jamie and Claire are thrown into the lavish world of French society, 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.
