The second season of “Outlander” will once again delve into the enchanting narrative of star-crossed lovers Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), as they make TV viewers swoon with their exploits and romance, that has intertwined two centuries. However, there has been no official date as to when “Outlander” Season 2 will commence airing.
“Outlander’s” story arc will rigorously follow Diana Gabaldon’s second outing of the “Outlander” book series, “Dragonfly in Amber”, of which the Starz historical science fiction romance drama is based, according to Ecumenical News.
The 18th Century nurse Randall and her roguish Highlander husband Fraser is required to initiate their continuing voyage in Paris. The story line will have both adventurers rubbing elbows with new characters somewhere in that refined area of France.
Centered on the time travelling 20th Century, nurse Claire Randall and her 18th Ccentury Scottish Highland warrior husband Jamie Fraser, the books contain elements of historical fiction, romance, adventure and science fiction/fantasy. It has been insinuated that their true quest is to seek Bonnie Prince Charlie of the Jacobites, in order to gain access into their secret world, which will ultimately help to impede the disastrous confrontation in Culloden Moor.
With this unfamiliar scenery, will come a myriad of prominent French and English actors like Dominique Piñon of Delicatessen fame, as a mysterious healer named Master Raymond. Randall will begin a close association with the unlikely apothecary. English actress Rosie Day (“Bernard’s Watch”) will play the daughter of a baronet, while fellow Englishman Andrew Gower (“The Village”) will portray estranged royalty Bonnie Prince Charlie.
The 35-year-old Heughan in an interview with Variety was quoted saying, “It’s difficult, from what happened at the end of season one — he’s not quite found his roots and he’s not on even ground, but he’s a very good adapter and he’s adapting to the situation and has a natural ability [for that].”
The final episode of Season 1, aptly titled “To Ransom a Man’s Soul” was a squeamish affair of sexual abuse and the loss of shame from such an act, as mentioned by TV.com.
Season 1 of “Outlander” began in August 9, 2014.
