New ‘Men in Kilts’ trailer and Season 2 release date revealed

Outlander stars Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish are back for another road trip!

Following the success of Men in Kilts: A Roadtrip with Sam and Graham in 2021, the pair have been exploring New Zealand this time.

The first season of Starz’s travel documentary series saw Heughan and McTavish – best known as Jamie Fraser and Dougal Mackenzie in the historical fantasy drama – embark on a road trip together around Scotland.

Described as “two blokes on the adventure of a lifetime,” Men in Kilts was a hit for Starz and a second season was announced last summer.

Six brand new episodes will see the Outlander duo take in the Scottish influence of New Zealand, while diving into its own history.

“We’re going to do it this time in a place that I love dearly,” said Graham McTavish last year. “We’re going to be enjoying ourselves in the footsteps of the Scottish immigrants that went [to New Zealand] in the early 19th Century, and finding all things Kiwi, and finding out why it is the Scotland of the Southern Hemisphere.”

When’s the release date?

It’s now been officially confirmed that Season 2 will premiere on Friday 11 August on Starz.

A new episode arrives each Friday, available to watch from midnight ET on the Starz app, streaming service, and on-demand platforms, ahead of a television broadcast at 9:30pm ET/PT.

If you missed Men in Kilts around, the whole first season is available to stream right now with a free 7-day Starz trial!

It’s an exciting summer for Outlander fans, with the show’s long-awaited seventh season finally launching this week!

The first eight episodes will begin at 8pm ET/PT on Friday 16 June.

Season 7’s second half will premiere in early 2024, so at least we have some brand new Men in Kilts to help us make it through the next Droughtlander.

Here’s a teaser trailer for Season 2, featuring a fun sing-along with Heughan and McTavish on the road:

Next up for Sam Heughan is production on a new psychological thriller series alongside Eleanor Tomlinson from Poldark.

Titled The Couple Next Door, it’s set to air next year on Channel 4 in the UK and on STARZ in the US and Canada.

In the meantime, have you read the actor’s “deeply personal” memoir yet?

Men in Kilts is available to watch on Starz with a free -day trial!
