As Summer 2014 creeps closer, I get increasingly anxious. Why is that?
Because that is when Outlander, the new Starz TV show based on the bestselling series, is set to premiere! Today, in honor of Claire Beachamp’s May 2nd disappearance, Starz came up with a nice little marketing game. They asked fans to tweet and Facebook the hashtag #WhereIsClaire so many times to unlock a new trailer.
Appropriately, the theme of this new trailer is Claire’s disappearance and her eventual struggle to reconcile her place in two different worlds, the past and future. Watch the new trailer below and prepare for some swoonworthy moments, courtesy of Sam Heughan’s portrayal of Jamie Fraser.
For those new to Outlander, they should have a better understanding of the show’s plot with this trailer. Of course, as a fan,it leaves me wanting more. This is only the beginning of this incredible journey for these characters; I can’t wait to see where Starz takes it with the first and hopefully subsequent seasons.
I was hoping with today’s new trailer we’d finally get a premiere date for the show. Sadly, Summer 2014 is all we know for now. But at least we have a new trailer and three new images to help with the wait!
The “Outlander” series spans the genres of romance, science fiction, history, and adventure in one epic tale. The series, adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling books by Ronald D. Moore (“Battlestar Galactica,” “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation”), is currently filming on location in Scotland and is set to premiere on STARZ this Summer. It follows the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945, who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743. Upon her arrival, she is immediately thrown into an unknown world where her life is threatened. But when she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser, a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate relationship is ignited. Now, Claire’s heart is torn between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
Outlander premieres Summer 2014, exclusively on STARZ.
