Outlander: See Claire and Jamie All Glammed Up in New Season 2 Footage

If you look up the phrase “trés chic” in a French phrasebook, you’re likely to find a photo of Outlander‘s Monsieur and Madame Fraser wearing their Season 2 best — or you can get your ooh-la-la on right now with this this exclusive behind-the-scenes look at what’s ahead on the Starz drama.

In the featurette above, stars Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe — as well as production designer John Gary Steele, set decorator Gina Cromwell and executive producers Ronald D. Moore and Maril Davis — offer some insight on construction of the sophomore season’s “very ornate, very grand and very elegant” sets and costumes.

What you already know if you’re a loyal fan: The Scottish historical drama travels to Paris in its second season, as Claire and Jamie attempt to thwart the Jacobite uprising by infiltrating French society.

What you’ll be verra pleased to learn if you’ve read Diana Gabaldon’s Dragonfly in Amber, which serves as the basis for Season 2: The clip features new footage from the upcoming episodes, including Claire and Murtagh arriving at L’Hopital des Anges, new character Mary timidly talking about sex (and getting heartily mocked for it by fellow newbie Louise), and… is that Fergus we see helping Jamie down from the carriage?

Outlander returns on Saturday, April 9, at 9/8c. Press PLAY on the video above to see all of the fashion, fancy sets and footage from the new season, then get yerself to the comments and tell us what you think!

    Loved the glimpses of some of my favorite characters (Fergus & Louise)!

  4. Miss O'Ginny says:

    How do we know for sure it is Fergus? Also, news really doesn’t travel fast in that time period as aren’t they (or at least JAMMF) running from the law? Were they able to dupe Parisian society and where did they get such coin for all this lavish home and wardrobe? Guess it’s really “fuirich agus chi thu”

    • Alichat says:

      That is the actor cast to portray Fergus. They are running from English law and French law didn’t much care about English law. And the home and clothing will be explained.

    BTW, Claire’s French = moi accent goals!

  6. Geneviève says:

    Mmh if you look up “trés chic” in a french dictionary it will show you how to write it correctly: “très chic”

  7. Liz says:

    I just can’t wait!! This story AND this performances are so great!
    And if Terry Dresbach doesn’t get an Emmy for her costumes, I swear…
