We’re still looking for something to get through Droughtlander. STARZ has us covered with Men in Kilts, but what about The Luminaries, too?

While you’re possibly rewatching Outlander or you’re turning to Netflix for some Droughtlander help, there’s no doubt that you want to use your STARZ membership better to get through this break. Men in Kilts premieres on Valentine’s Day, and it’s sure to help. But it’s not the only show that will premiere on this day.

Men in Kilts episodes are just 30 minutes long. STARZ had to fill the gap somehow, and the best wya to do that is with another 30-minute series. The Luminaries premieres at 9:30/8:30c on Valentine’s Day. It could be just what you need to help you get through Droughtlander.

What is The Luminaries about?

The series follows Anna Wetherell, played by Eve Hewson, who travels to New Zealand in 1865 to start a new life. She meets Emery Staines, played by Himesh Patel, on the last day of the trip across, who fills her with all sorts of great expectations for her new life.

However, Lydia Wells,  played by Eva Green, puts a dampener on things. The fortune-teller lays a trap for Anna, ensuring that the meeting between Anna and Emery in New Zealand doesn’t work, and Anna’s fortune begins to fall.

There’s an epic story of star crossed lovers. There is plenty of scheming and deception. There may also be a bit of murder.

How many episodes are in the series?

There are six episodes in the series. It’s a short one, but it’s still certainly worth checking out. This show is one of those that will draw you into the mystery and drama, while leaving you questioning whether we make our own fortune or fate has already set it up for us.

You’ve already got STARZ for Men in Kilts, so you’ll want to keep it for The Luminaries.
