Check Out an Exclusive Clip from the New Starz Series, Outlander
It's got kilts, romantic tension and Scottish accents. What more could you want?
Starz debuted its new series, Outlander (which follows the adventures – romantic and otherwise – of a 20th-century woman who travels back in time to 18th-century Scotland) for Comic-Con fans in San Diego on Friday night. (It’s adapted from a long-running series of books: Check out our profile of author Diana Gabaldon here.)
Entertainment Weekly has footage of the show’s credit sequence, which is, appropriately, a reworking of the Scottish folk tune, “The Skye Boat Song.”
Meanwhile, PEOPLE has the above minute-long clip, featuring Caitriona Balfe (who plays protagonist Claire Beauchamp Randall) and Sam Heughan (who plays Jamie Fraser). There are kilts, swords, Heughan’s Scottish accent and romantic tension – in other words, everything you wanted from an Outlander TV series.
