About the Show

Outlander is a British-American period drama television series based on the Outlander series of novels by Diana Gabaldon and developed by Ronald D. Moore in which married World War II nurse Claire Beauchamp Randall finds herself transported back to Scotland in 1743, where she encounters civil war and the dashing Highland warrior Jamie Fraser.

Claire (Caitriona Balfe), a married British combat nurse from 1945, mysteriously falls back in time to 1743 Scotland, where she is torn between her husband Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies) and Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), a Scottish warrior who comes to her rescue.

At the start of the series, she is a woman who has been transported into the past, but she's reaching back and trying to stay connected to the life and husband that are now beyond her reach.

The Outlander series spans the genres of romance, science fiction, history, and adventure in one epic tale. It follows Claire Randall as she navigates the hidden dangers of 18th century Scotland, an unknown world where her freedom and very life are at risk.

When she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser, a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate affair is ignited that tears Claire's heart between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

Diana Gabaldon's seven-book series has sold more than 25-million copies worldwide and has graced the New York Times best-seller list six times.

The first two episodes of the series are written by Executive Producer Ronald D. Moore and directed by John Dahl (Dexter, Breaking Bad, Justified). Outlander is produced by Tall Ship Productions, Story Mining & Supply Company and Left Bank Pictures in association with Sony Pictures Television.

In addition to Caitriona Balfe (Claire), Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser) and Tobias Menzies (Frank Randall/Jonathan Black Jack Randall), the cast of Outlander also includes Graham McTavish (Dougal MacKenzie), Gary Lewis (Colum MacKenzie), Lotte Verbeek (Geillis Duncan) and Duncan Lacroix (Murtagh FitzGibbons Fraser).
