Outlander fans have been counting down the days to the launch of Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish’s new project.
And the pair are whipping everyone up into even more of a frenzy as they promise the release of their first official trailer for new show ‘Men in Kilts’ today.
Described as a “love letter to Scotland”, it was shot last year in between filming for Outlander and follows the friends as they go an adventure across the country to explore its history, culture and clans.
Appearing clad in kilts in a clip uploaded to Instagram, the stars say: “It’s time to pack your bags because we’re taking you to Scotland with us in our new show Men in Kilts and the first stop on our trip is for you to join us tomorrow as we release our official trailer!”
The hosts haven’t announced a release day yet but have promised it will be “soon”.
Men In Kilts was originally due to be released before the end of the year, but the covid outbreak meant some scenes were still being finished over the past month or so.
The actors were spotted filming in places like the East Neuk of Fife and Sam was pictured on his own for a photoshoot at both Glenelg and Eilean Donan Castle.
They also delighted fans by creating a book to go with the show, Clanlands, which delves into their time filming the new project.
Meanwhile Sam has dropped more than a few hints recently that the cast and crew of Outlander are heading back on set.
A post over the Christmas period on the official Outlander Twitter page featured stars giving fans a virtual tour of the wardrobe department.
In the three minute clip, Sam, who plays Jamie was joined by Caitriona Balfe (Claire), Sophie Skelton (Brianna) and Richard Rankin (Roger) MacKenzie.
The Scot showed fans all the different clothes hanging on the rails for all the ‘settlers’ that will be coming to Fraser’s Ridge in the sixth season.
While Sophie hinted that we would be seeing a lot more of her in season six too.
Sam also stated that they were “prepping, dressing people and learning to deal with all of the guidelines”.
It is hoped the STARZ series will be back on our screens at some point before the end of this year.
However, it is unclear how the recent restrictions in Scotland, where a lot of the filming takes place will affect the shooting schedule or delay it further.
