Another year, another Comic Con. One of the biggest highlights at this year’s convention is Starz’s new show, Outlander. Not only did they host the premiere over there in San Diego, but the cast and creators took part in a Q&A panel and debuted a new trailer, the show’s official opening credits sequence, and much more!
The new trailer and opening showcase never-before-seen footage from the series, along with an arrangement of the “Skye Boat Song” by Emmy-award winning composer Bear McCreary featuring the vocals of songstress Raya Yarbrough. The song is now available on iTunes to purchase.
“Outlander” premieres on Saturday, August 9th at 9pm ET/PT on STARZ. But you can watch it a week early on August 2nd! Get the details on the early premiere here.
Since there’s so much to share, I’m going to lay it all out for you below to watch and enjoy!

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”), follows the story of Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe), 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 (Sam Heughan), 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” is produced by Tall Ship Productions, Story Mining & Supply Company and Left Bank Pictures in association with Sony Pictures Television.
