From The Hollywood Reporter:

As the “Droughtlander” finally comes to an end, Outlander fans are going to be in for quite the surprise when season two premieres.

The Starz time-traveling romance drama is changing things up for its sophomore outing, as author Diana Gabaldon’s second book Dragonfly in Amber takes place in a new city, with a new mission, a new cast of characters and even a new time period.

More after the jump!

Season two won’t be exactly the same as Dragonfly in Amber 

There will be big structural changes from the page to the screen, even more so than last season. For one: Frank’s (Tobias Menzies) role will be expanded as the show returns to the 20th century, but in a much different way than how Dragonfly in Amber begins. “[Non-book readers] are expecting that we’re going to open in France and start that story,” executive producer Ron Moore tells THR. “[To open how the books opens], it was too much. It felt like an overwhelming reset of the show. It’s a big enough reset just to say that they failed to stop Culloden and the whole mission was a disaster and that she left him behind. So let’s start at the beginning of that story. I want to tell that story before we get into all the other machinations.”

But the entire book will play out in the 13 episodes of season two. 

“We’ve made a structural change at the beginning of the premiere, but the basics are still definitely recognizable as Dragonfly in Amber,” Moore says. “It’s still that story, just told slightly differently in how we’re choosing to parse it out. It’s still going to be that story at the end of the day. We’re going to do the whole book.”

A new city

Although season two takes place mainly in Paris, France, it was actually filmed in Prague, England and Scotland, since most modern Parisian buildings and landmarks weren’t built until after Jamie and Claire lived there.

“It’s just such a different world,” Moore says. “It’s such a different show. We’re reinventing the show in a completely different key. Visually, it looks radically different. It’s fascinating to put our characters into this world, this completely exotic environment for them.”
