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.
