As many people out there know, we are hopefully going to get a chance to see Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish on Starz later this year. Men in Kilts is the much-discussed travel series featuring the Outlander stars hitting the road across Scotland. It’s a chance to experience cultural traditions, important history, and incredible geography. There’s a lot to look forward to here.
Of course, there is also another big question that people may be understandably wondering about: When in the world the show is going to premiere. To date, Starz has noted that the show is “coming soon,” but what will that window be? We know that for the next several weeks, the network does still have programming on Sunday nights. Hightown is ending today, P-Valley is premiering tonight, and in September, Power Book II: Ghost is going to be starting up. Odds are, Men in Kilts will be following one of these shows rather than airing on its own.
Given that Starz wants to have some ample time in order to properly promote Men in Kilts, we have a hard time imagining that it’s going to premiere at some point over the next few weeks. Our thinking instead is that a September/October premiere makes the most sense. They could even launch it alongside Power Book II: Ghost in order to create as dominant a lineup as possible. We suppose it’s also possible that they could move the show away from the standard Sunday-night-only original programming block to establish more of a foothold elsewhere.
In the end, Starz has options — and they also have a show here that they know could bring them some attention. They’re going to want to take advantage of this to the fullest.
