A new trailer has arrived for the TV adaptation of Diana Gabaldon’s bestselling “Outlander” historical novels.

The “Outlander” series follows Claire Randall, a former nurse living in the 1940s who travels through time after entering a stone circle in Scotland and ends up in the 1700s. There, she meets and falls in love with Scotsman Jamie Fraser.

The TV series stars Caitriona Balfe as Claire and actor Sam Heughan as Jamie.

The new clip shows the stone circle and has a voiceover of Claire relating her experience.

“Something happened to me,” she says. “And I know it doesn’t make any sense, but I seem to have fallen through time.”

Quick images show Claire with her husband Frank (Tobias Menzies, who also portrays Frank’s ancestor Black Jack Randall) in the 1940s, soldiers fighting during World War II, Menzies as Jack Randall, and what looks like Claire arriving with Jamie at Castle Leoch, the home of one side of Jamie’s family.

The TV series is set to premiere this summer.
