Outlander fans have had plenty to celebrate lately—from Diana Gabaldon's 9th book Go Tell the Bees That I am Gone to the announcement that season 6 of the drama will premiere in March 2022. And now, Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish's travel series Men in Kilts has been picked up for a second season. Here's what we know so far:

Starz just confirmed that Men in Kilts will return for season 2.

And this time, the actors are going to New Zealand. Per an official release from Starz, "Heughan and McTavish will continuetheir immersive adventure travel experience, this time in New Zealand. They will revel in theScottish influence of New Zealand, while diving into its own history."

Previously, when asked if there might be a second season, McTavish hinted that the show might expand beyond Scotland, telling T&C:

"There are many, many, many more stories to tell in Scotland. We've barely scratched the surface there. And that's not even including the wider Scottish influence that went out into the rest of the world, like in America, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, even places like India and Brazil. Even France, which has such a traditional connection... I think hopefully, this is just the beginning."

Of course, filming would have to coordinate with Outlander's forthcoming seasons.

And there's still the question of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. But fortunately, Men in Kilts has some experience with the safety protocols required to produce a series during a global health crisis.

"We were one of the first productions to actually shoot in the UK or in Scotland," Heughan explained, noting that they shot part of Men in Kilts's first season just after the first UK lockdown. "We're very lucky to navigate through all of that."

We'll continue to update this post should more information about a second season become available. In the meantime, if you're craving more from McTavish and Heughan, all five seasons of Outlander are available to stream on the Starz app right now. Sign up for Starz
