In an interview with Forbes, to discuss the release of its new tequila brand, Sam Heughan revealed that he’s going to spend Christmas time in quarantine, getting ready for the start of filming for Men in Kilts Season 2 in the new year.

“Well, I think I’m allowed to reveal that I’m going to actually be alone in quarantine over the Christmas period. I’m going to New Zealand, shooting Men In Kilts, our next season down in New Zealand, so I will be taking a bottle maybe of both [tequila and whisky], so it will be a very merry Christmas but quite a lonely one.”

After a series of postponements due to the pandemic, filming has officially begun in New Zealand!

To witness the start of filming are some videos sent by Graham via Cameo, where you can see some glimpses of the locations where he and Sam are shooting!

These days Sam and Graham have been filming at Lake Wakatipu, a glacial lake on New Zealand’s South Island. This location is placed near the resort town of Queenstown, located on the north shore of the central part of the lake.

Yesterday, February 1, here comes the first pictures directly from the set on New Zealand, more precisely they arrived in Invercargill.

As reported in the STARZ official press release, Men in Kilts Season 2 will feature Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish hit the road again in New Zealand in a six-episode season. They will revel in the Scottish influence of New Zealand, while diving into its own history.

In a past interview for Digital Spy, Sam Heughan also added that in addition to Scotland, the crazy duo have hopes to travel more and explore other places, and also said that a lot of places around the globe are influenced by Scottish culture.

“We created the show, we wanted to explore Scotland but also elsewhere, and I think there’s so much Scottish influence around the world. We’ve been working on it, we’re definitely working towards that, we’d love to explore more together. As long as I can insure Graham on some sort of aeroplane or something,”

  1. Glad to hear the season 2 Men in Kilts was producers, enjoyed season 1. I read every word Diana Gabaldon wrote and started watching the series with my mother as we are /were both nurses, mom’s career spanning over 50 years, plus in late 1940’s, she was an aid as she was too young for training.
    Unfortunately she became increasingly ill and did not maintain interest in the series. A few years prior and she would have read all the Books and watched the series. We lost her 7/2021, the best nurse ever.
    Thanks for all the entertainment!
