More from SheKnows

Heughan’s new series is The Couple Next Door, is promising, per the press release, to be “a deliciously dark, psychological drama” that explores “the stultifying claustrophobia of suburbia and the fallout of chasing your darkest desires.” Well, call us interested! The 42-year-old actor will play an “alpha traffic cop” who gets involved with his new next-door neighbor, played by Eleanor Tomlinson. Of course these things are complicated — they are both married to other people. (And if Heughan and Tomlinson’s chemistry is anything like the heat he and Outlander co-star Caitriona Balfe share, prepare to melt!)

The six-part thriller will be the third project Heughan does with Starz — Outlander and Men in Kilts: A Roadtrip with Sam and Graham are the other two — and it sounds like the network is thrilled to do business with him. Sam has truly found his home at STARZ as he continues to shine on our slate,” said Kathryn Busby, President of Original Programming for STARZ, in a statement. “This marks our third series with the brilliant actor, and we cannot wait to see the chemistry he and Eleanor will ignite together in this provocative series.”
