Outlander Series Premiere Preview [VIDEO and PHOTOS] 


Warning: Spoilers Ahead

The official Outlander series premiere is Saturday, August 9th. But if, like us, your anticipation is so high that you can’t wait Starz made the first episode available this past weekend across a number of social media platforms. So, if you were inclined to take an early look at the pilot, entitled “Sassenach,” tell us what you think. We’ve watched it and we love it (a bit more on that after the jump). Or if you’re waiting to see the premiere in all its glory on your television (or computer) screen, I guess we can respect that.

Directed by John Dahl and written by Ronald D. Moore, “Sassenach” begins with Claire and Frank Randall on their second honeymoon after the war. They’ve been apart for five years and they’re in desperate need of a reconnect. They travel to the Scottish Highlands, where the belief in ghosts and legend is strong. When Claire is transported back to the eighteenth century she soon realizes that her skills as a nurse and the random bits of local history that she’s gleaned from her husband will serve her well.

Series synopsis, from Starz:

The Outlander series spans the genres of romance, science fiction, history and adventure in one epic tale. 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 Saturday, August 9th at 9/8c on Starz.
