Season 2 of Starz's "Outlander" will see Jamie and Claire in France, and according to casting update roles of Jamie's former girlfriend, Black Jack Randall's brother, and Jamie's cousin have already been cast.
While French actress Margaux Chatelier will play Annalise de Marillac, Sam Heughan's character Jamie's former love, the role of Jamie's cousin Jared Fraser is expected to be portrayed by Robert Cavanah.
Meanwhile, Laurence Dobiesz will play Alex Randall, who is nothing like his older brother Black Jack Randall.
It remains to be seen how the introduction of Jamie's ex will affect his relationship with Claire. At this point all we know about Annalise de Marillac is that she was a young woman who Jamie had a crush on when he was in France, and he even fought a duel over her. But he had to return home broken-hearted after Annalise chose his opponent over him.
In the "Outlander" series of books, there is no drama between Claire and Annalise, as Jamie assures Claire that Annalise is not a threat. But executive producer Ron D Moore could make her a threat to add a bit of drama to Jamie and Claire's relationship.
As for what to expect in the second season, which is expected to make a 2016 debut, the executive producer told E!Online that the Parisian setting is going to make the story more political.
"It's a great setting, and what was one of the most populated cities in the world at that time. French society, it's Aristocracy, the colors are brighter. You're talking about fine linens and silks, you're talking about gilt chandeliers, you know, everything that your mind conjures up when you say Versailles or Paris of that era," he said.
"Suddenly our characters who lived in a Scottish world for all of season one are in that world, so it's going to look and feel very different, which is exciting, you know. And the story is also different in that it's much more political, it's much more conspiracy, it's much more lies and gossips and double dealing in Paris salons and so on, and building towards a war. It's all setting the stage for the Jacobite invasion of Scotland, and will history repeat itself," Moore added.
