The eagerly awaited second installment will be 13 episodes and is based upon the second of eight books in Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling Outlander series, titled “Dragonfly in Amber.” The series is executive produced by Ronald D. Moore.
Starz also released a first look at their teaser art featuring “Outlander” couple Claire Randall Fraser (playd by Balfe) and Jamie Fraser (played by Heughan) on the steps of Versailles.

The new image gives viewers a taste of what’s to come in this exciting and dangerous next chapter -– old world lavishness mixed with a sense of new world urgency.
