Shirtless Sam Heughan Heats Up 'Outlander' Trailer for Starz

Hunky Sam Heughan goes shirtless as Scottish warrior Jamie Fraser in the new Starz series Outlander, premiering later this year.

Outlander follows the story of Claire Randall (Caitriona 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 where her life is threatened. When she is forced to marry Jamie, 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.

Watch the Outlander trailer below!

    I cannot wait for the release! The books are amazing, this show looks like it’s going to do more than justice to the books!

  • Petunia

    This show looks like it’s going to have it all—romance, history, adventure, lust, and action enough for everyone. Battlestar Galactica’s Ron Moore is producing, it so you know it’s going to be great storytelling. Move over, Game of Thrones!

    I have read the entire series 3 times. The best love story of all time!
    Can’t wait to see it.


    The book series inspired me to take my first trip to Scotland 20 years ago-and I’ve loved every book that has come out. I’m so excited that it is finally making it to the screen. And Sam IS Jamie Fraser!!!!! The scenery shot in Scotland, the music (which we aren’t hearing in the trailers) everything about this series is breathtaking!

    Wow!!! I can’t wait to see Sam Heughan in Outlander! It’s going to be epic! And I think both Sam and his leading lady, Caitriona Balfe, are perfectly cast. Summer will be here faster than we think – and it’s going to an all-Outlander summer and fall in our house!

  • Sue

    Thanks for the pic and the trailer. The book series is amazing and the TV series looks to do it justice. So excited!

  • Anne

    Give me a premier date so I can plan my vacation. I have been waiting for this to be made for years. Now that it’s almost here and everything looks so perfect, cast, costuming and location I want to give it my undivided attention when it airs!

  • Jo

    He is perfectly cast, as is the beautiful and effortlessly cool Caitriona. The show will absolutely not disappoint, even a non reader will enjoy (although not as much as a reader :) he is a beautiful, beautiful man!!

  • Jan

    Oh, YES~the greatest love story written by highly favored and perfectly stellar author Diana Gaboldon, brought to life by the talanted Ron Moore in Scotland AND amazing music composed just for this story?? What more could one ask for, save perhaps the rest of her books to follow along~CAN.NOT.WAIT!!

  • http://@dorne1 KellyGD

    So excited to see Outlander come to the screen!! A HUGE fan of Diana Gabaldon – the series is my all time favorite! Looking forward to seeing what a wonderful job Catriona Balfe & Sam Heughan do with Claire & Jamie 😃

  • JoAnn P

    I can hardly wait for this to air! The books are fabulous, and the cast and crew look to be doing an amazing job of bringing the story to life. #Outlander

  • Carol Bryson

    I am so ready for this series to start! I think the actors will do a FABULOUS job if brining these wonderful books to life!

  • Lutzie2

    Best books of all time! Cannot wait to watch Starz all summer!!!!

  • Donna H

    Incredible book series, luscious set and actors in Starz Outlander series! Will be the next big thing ! Can’t wait!

  • http://GFrench GFrench

    Sam has definitely been working out ALOT!!! Can’t wait to see him and Cat steaming up the screen!!!

  • Lyn

    from what I’ve seen in the trailer – Sam Heughan is going to be a perfect Jamie. Eagerly anticipating this series.

  • KellyM

    I have been in love with this series (and Jamie) for years. I feel like a 16yo again watching Starz, Ron Moore and Sam Heughan bringing this wonderful story to screen!!!

  • Emily Snyder

    Love me some JAMMF! Can’t wait to see Sam and Cait on screen as Jamie and Claire! “Summer” can’t be here fast enough!

  • Belinda

    This is the best book series I have ever read and to know that it is finally going to be on screen makes me so happy! I have been following the production and the crew seems to be making a show worthy of being called Outlander!

  • http://@LallybrochLaura Laura

    The more I hear about Outlander, the more excited I get! You all are SO right!!

  • http://@LallybrochLaura Laura

    OK, I just watched this trailer again. May I say – Tobias Menzies is going to blow us away in his dual role as Claire’s modern-day husband Frank Randall, and Frank’s 18th-century forebear, Captain “Black Jack” Randall! What a juicy set of roles for a VERY talented actor to bring to life!

  • http://@LallybrochLaura Laura

    And one more thing… apparently Caitriona Balfe and her two on-screen “husbands,” Sam Heughan and Tobias Menzies, are all the best of friends in real life!

  • Petunia

    @Laura: Tobias is certainly trading up—from the sad sack Edmure Tully on Game of Thrones to the husband of former Victoria’s Secret model/actress Cait? Every actor should be so lucky….

  • Nan

    From what I’ve seen from the trailer, the show looks promising. Will check it out later.

  • Lisa Branford

    Yep – Sam Heughan is beyond hot, but he’s also a really great actor. The entire cast is amazingly talented and perfect for their roles. Ron Moore is knocking this one out of the park.

  • http://@LallybrochLaura Laura

    Too true about Tobias trade-up in dramatic roles! He has the range to play both the debonair scholar/spy, AND the twisted villain in Outlander – he’s been so good, in so many roles (loved him in Rome)!

  • http://Ohpepperoh Pepper

    Well, just look at that skin!! Why cover it up with a shirt? Clearly, Sam Heughan is a hot scot, but he becomes his character, Jamie! Also something you can see visibly in the trailer above!!

  • Ell R

    So glad that Starz has taken this challenge–there are a TON of fans to please, and so far they are hitting the nail on the head! PERFECT casting.

  • Gaby

    So looking forward to seeing the characters of Outlander come alive on Starz. The entire cast is talented and with Ron Moore at the helm I know it will be phenomenal!

  • http://vmsams Vernette

    I am eagerly awaiting the start of the Outlander series!!

  • Debbie

    Cannot wait for this series! The books are fantastic. The show is in the capable hands of Ron Moore. The casting of Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe is PERFECT! Soon people will be saying, “Better than Game of Thrones!” And they’ll be correct!

  • KAFrye

    I’m eagerly awaiting STARZ’s Outlander Series to air! Diana Gabaldon’s books are fabulous, and the cast and crew look to be doing an amazing job of bringing the story to life. I’m hoping the first 16 episodes will develop into many seasons, so all the books … including the one(s) not yet written, will be televised over the next 9+ years.

  • Denibraz

    @Pepper: So true Pepper. It’s amazing how he incarnate Jamie! Greetings from Brazil

  • http://MichiganOutlndr Jan

    So looking forward to this – subscribed to Starz just to be able to watch it!

  • Petunia

    @KAFrye: Me, too—the whole series over nine years would be a dream come true!

  • Yvette P

    I CAN’T wait! This is my utmost favorite book of all time! Game of Thrones and others like them have NOTHING on what this show will be…..I mean…the fanbase already is HUGE!! How many other TV shows can say they have millions of fans already BEFORE airing?? =)

  • Jean

    Sam has brought the perfection of Jamie to life. His physique as well as his personality melts female fans hearts at every turn.

  • http://Bigdoh Karen

    Sam is exactly how I imagined Jamie to look like. The books are amazing and I can’t wait to see them come to life on Starz!

  • Clare

    Fantastic book series by Diana Gabaldon and beyond excited to see Outlander on my TV screen this summer. Sam Heughan and the whole cast & crew are doing an awesome job bringing the story to life.
