Starz Sets 'Outlander' Premiere Date, Releases Official Poster


Mark your calendars, everyone, because 'Outlander' has finally been given a premiere date. Starz announced earlier today that the historical drama — which was adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling novels of the same name — will debut Saturday, August 9 at 9/8c.

But that's not all! The network also released the show's first official poster, which features stars Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan underneath the very appropriate tagline: "What if your future was your past?"

The 16-episode series follows the story of Claire Randall (Balfe), a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743, where she's immediately thrown into an unknown world. When she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser (Heughan), a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate affair is ignited that tears Claire’s heart between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

The cast also includes Tobias Menzies as Frank Randall, Graham McTavish (Dougal MacKenzie), Gary Lewis (Colum MacKenzie), Lotte Verbeek (Geillis Duncan), and Duncan Lacroix (Murtagh FitzGibbons Fraser).
