From the rugged hillsides of the Scottish Highlands on Outlander Season 1 to the opulence and intrigues of 18th Century Parisian society on Outlander Season 2, we can expect things to look quite different when our favorite romantic couple returns.
Just look at the key art for new season now and try to put it in perspective against from whence they've come.
Even from Claire's future, this is much different than anything with which either Claire or Jamie has ever been involved.
The key art depicts Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) surrounded by (left to right) Mary Hawkins (Rosie Day); King Louis XV (Lionel Lingelser); Louise de Rohan (Claire Sermonne); Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix); Le Comte St Germain (Stanley Weber) and Prince Charles Stuart (Andrew Gower).
Claire and Jamie are attempting to change history, by stopping the battle of Culloden, through flattery, manipulation and politics.
The Frasers are fighting this war – not on the battlefield – but in the courts of King Louis.
While the original image was about Claire and Jamie being thrown together, this new art shows them united in their mission, fighting for their future together and the fate of Scotland itself.
Outlander returns Saturday, April 9 at 9/8c only on Starz!
