Starz’s period drama”Outlander” will premiere its second season over the weekend, and executive producer Ronald D. Moore teased what fans can expect from the new adventures of Claire (Caitrona Balfe) as she embarks on a her quest in Paris.
As Claire and husband Jamie (Sam Heughan) try to balance raising a family and changing the course of history, the heroine of the drama will find herself in brand new battles, ones that are very different from the types of conflict she was used to in the first season of the show.
“She’s had to penetrate a very different world, dealing with aristocrats. It’s a nest of vipers and a bit of a challenge for Claire, who is used to speaking her mind,” Moore spilled to The New York Post referring to Claire’s inflitration of the French society in the upcoming chapter of the drama.
As previously reported, season 2 of the American-British drama will be more of a political game as the couple will try to prevent the Jacobite Rising and expose master manipulator, Charles Stuart (Andrew Gower).
Based on the bestselling novel series by Diana Gabaldon of the same title, the next chapter of the story will delve on the events of the book “Dragonfly in Amber.” Given that the series has to take into consideration the books as well as historical incidents, Moore admitted that they are aware of the the online debate caused by the way they choose to present the story.
Backed up with the relentless support that they are getting from fans, Moore chimed his eagerness to continue the show as long as there are good stories to tell. “There are eight and Diana’s writing the ninth. In a perfect world, we would keep following the books as they move through time and places. Lots of series continue to evolve. Our story changes countries and time periods. Characters come and go. It’s a saga you could watch for years,” he said.
“Outlander” season 2 will premiere on April 9.
