(Text from Amazon UK press release)

Outlander season two launches on Amazon Prime Video

11th February 2016, LONDON Amazon has today announced the UK launch date for season two of Golden Globe nominated Outlander as April 10th. Amazon Prime members in the UK will have exclusive access to the new episodes as they are released weekly, a day after they air in the US on Starz.

The eagerly awaited second installment will be thirteen episodes long and will once again star Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan as Claire Randell and Jamie Fraser. Based upon the second of eight books in Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling Outlander series, entitledDragonfly in Amber, the new series is again executively produced by Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: The Next Generation).

The new season begins as Claire and Jamie arrive in France determined to infiltrate the Jacobite rebellion and stop the Battle of Culloden. Instead of swords and guns, they’re armed with political savvy and the finest 1700s Parisian fashion as they embark on their new mission – infiltrating the French aristocracy and rewriting history.

Thrown into the lavish world of French society, political gains prove tricky as Claire and Jamie endeavour to alter the course of history, amid challenges weighing on the fabric of their relationship. With the help of his cousin Jared, a local wine merchant, Jamie and Claire are thrown into the lavish world of French society, and armed with the knowledge of what lies ahead, Claire and Jamie must race to prevent a doomed Highland uprising and the extinction of Scottish life as they know it.

Well, now you can.

The Administrators of Heughan’s Heughligans are pleased to announce a partnership one year in the making. Together, along with Hamilton & Young, the celebration of our second anniversary continues.
Introducing the OFFICIAL Heughan’s Heughligan’s Outlander inspired Pearl Necklace. THE piece you have all been asking for.

DSC_0167-001

Delicately constructed by H&Y, this beautiful piece of jewelry is inspired by these words in Diana Gabaldon’s novel, “Outlander”:

” … a string of small baroque pearls, those irregularly shaped productions of fresh water mussels, interspersed with tiny pierced-work gold roundels.”

Our necklace contains genuine Baroque Fresh Water Pearls and delicate pierced gold-plated roundels. We feel it is as authentic to the words in the book as it is possible to be.
The necklace is 22” in length – with a short extender at the back to take it to 24”.

It is available on Hamilton & Young’s website right now, at a special launch price of only £32.99 (about $50.00, Euro45.00).

But wait, there’s more! Order with the special code HEUGHANS at the checkout* and not only will 10% of the proceeds go to help fund Youth Theatre Arts Scotland (YTAS), but you will also receive a FREE, matching, gold-plated HH charm to compliment your piece. This is our gift to you for being the BEST FANS in the world. This charm can be worn anyplace on the necklace, or even alone on a chain of your choosing. Please visit Hamilton & Young’s website for more details.
