Vive les Frasers! Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie's (Sam Heughan) epic time-traveling love story continues as the couple sets sail for France when Outlander: Season Two is out on Blu-ray and DVD on 31st October 2016 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
Outlander: Season Two takes Claire and Jamie out of the Scottish Highlands, dropping them into the royal Parisian courts of King Louis XV to try to infiltrate the Jacobite rebellion. Forget the past, it's time to rewrite history!
Based on Diana Gabaldon's international best-selling book series about a British WWII nurse who is mysteriously swept back in time to Scotland in 1743, Outlander has become a pop culture phenomenon and captivated audiences with its breathtaking romance, science fiction, history and adventure. The hit Starz series also stars Tobias Menzies (TV's Game of Thrones), Duncan Lacroix (TV's Vikings), Graham McTavish (The Hobbit trilogy), Stephen Walters (TV's A.D. The Bible Continues), and Grant O'Rourke (Crying with Laughter), and introduces series newcomers Rosie Day (All Roads Lead to Rome), Andrew Gower (TV's A.D. The Bible Continues) and Stanley Weber (TV's Borgia). Outlander was developed by executive producer Ronald D. Moore (TV's Battlestar Galactica) and is produced by Tall Ship Productions, Story Mining & Supply Company, and Left Bank Pictures in association with Sony Pictures Television.
In 2016, season two of Outlander garnered two Emmy® nominations (Outstanding Costume Design and Outstanding Production Design) and was renewed for a third and fourth season by Starz. The season two premiere garnered 1.46 million viewers, doubling the viewership of the series premiere in 2014, and setting a new Starz record for a second season premiere.
Outlander: Season Two contains all thirteen episodes in five-disc Blu-ray and DVD sets, along with 24 deleted and extended scenes with introductions by Ronald D. Moore, a gag reel, and two featurettes. In From Book to Screen: Discovering the Differences, Ronald D. Moore, Diana Gabaldon and the writers of Outlander Season 2 discuss how they develop the scripts based off of the book series and go in-depth into the challenges in selecting plot points to bring to the screen; and meet the new characters introduced in Season Two in Characters of Season Two.
Blu-ray exclusive content includes an extended version of the episode Faith, with an additional 11 minutes of the heart-wrenching episode, an alternate scene from the episode Dragonfly in Amber, the Outlander podcasts for each episode with commentary from Ronald D. Moore, and three additional featurettes. Jamie & Claire: To Hell and Back looks into the highs and lows that Jamie and Claire have been through this season and how they survived based on their unconditional faith in one another, while Designing History: The Costumes of Outlander and Recreating 18th Century Paris showcase the intricate new costumes and set designs from Claire and Jamie's time in France.
Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) arrive in France, hell-bent on infiltrating the Jacobite rebellion led by Prince Charles Stuart (Andrew Gower) and stopping the battle of Culloden. With the help of Jamie's cousin Jared (Robert Cavanah), they are thrown into the lavish world of French society, where intrigue and parties are abundant but political gain proves far less fruitful. Altering the course of history presents challenges that begin to weigh on the very fabric of their relationship - but, armed with the knowledge of what lies ahead, Claire and Jamie must race to prevent a doomed Highland uprising and the extinction of Scottish life as they know it.
