August will be a verra bonny month for those looking forward to Starz’s upcoming adaptation of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander novels.
The historical drama will debut on Saturday, August 9 at 9 pm ET/PT, the pay cabler announced Thursday.
Even better, Starz released the series’ official poster, featuring stars Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan underneath the time-traveling drama’s tagline: What if your future was your past?
The series, adapted by Battlestar Galactica‘s Ronald D. Moore, follows the story of Claire Randall (played by Balfe), a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743, where she is 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.
