Outlander is an historical drama television series based on the ongoing novel series of the same name by Diana Gabaldon.
Developed by Ronald D. Moore, the show premiered on 09 August 2014, on Starz. It stars Caitriona Balfe as Claire Randall, a married former World War II military nurse in Scotland who, in 1945, finds herself transported back to 1743. There she encounters the dashing Highland warrior Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), a member of Gabaldon’s fictionalised version of Clan Fraser of Lovat, and becomes embroiled in the Jacobite rising.
The 16-episode first season of the television series (released as two half-seasons) is based on the first novel in the series, Outlander (known as Cross Stitch in the UK). The second season of 13 episodes, based on Dragonfly in Amber, aired from April to July 2016. The 13-episode third season, based on Voyager, aired from September to December 2017. The 13-episode fourth season, based on Drums of Autumn, aired from November 2018 to January 2019. The fifth season of 12 episodes, based on The Fiery Cross, aired from February to May 2020.
The series has been renewed for 12-episode sixth and seventh seasons to be based on A Breath of Snow and Ashes and An Echo in the Bone.
In 1945, former World War II nurse Claire Randall and her husband Frank are visiting Inverness, Scotland, when she is carried back in time to 1743 by the standing stones at Craigh na Dun (a fictitious place; see Clava cairn). She falls in with a group of rebel Highlanders from Clan MacKenzie (a fictionalization of the real Clan MacKenzie), who are being pursued by British redcoats led by Captain Jonathan “Black Jack” Randall. Randall turns out to be Frank’s ancestor.
Out of necessity Claire marries a Highlander, Jamie Fraser, but they quickly fall in love. Clan MacKenzie suspect her of being a spy, but retain her as a healer, which prevents her from attempting to return to her own time. Knowing that the Jacobite cause is doomed to fail, she tries to warn them against rebellion. Her husband Jamie is captured, tortured, and raped by the sadistic Randall, but Claire and his clansmen rescue him. Claire tells Jamie that she is pregnant and they set sail for France.
In Paris, Claire and Jamie try to thwart the Jacobites by subverting the funds that King Louis XV of France is likely to provide. Jamie becomes the confidant of Charles Stuart, but the Frasers fail to prevent the risings. Randall reappears in Paris, but Claire makes Jamie swear to keep him alive until Frank’s descent is assured. She achieves this by convincing Randall to marry Mary Hawkins. Claire loses her baby, and she and Jamie return to Scotland. The Jacobites win the Battle of Prestonpans.
Before the Battle of Culloden, Jamie convinces Claire, pregnant again, to return to the 20th century. Jamie decides to die fighting at Culloden with his clan. Back in her own century, Claire tells Frank about her time travel. He asks her to forget Jamie, and let him raise their child as his own. Twenty years later, Frank has died. Claire takes her daughter Brianna to Scotland. Claire discovers that Jamie did not die at Culloden and vows to return to him.
Jamie kills Randall at Culloden, and is gravely injured, but spared execution. At Ardsmuir prison, he befriends the governor Lord John Grey, who later paroles him to work at an English estate. There Jamie is manipulated into a sexual liaison and fathers an illegitimate son, William. Jamie returns to Scotland and becomes a printer.
In 1948, Claire enrols in medical school in Boston, Massachusetts. Frank is killed in a car accident while Brianna is in college. With the help of Roger Wakefield, Claire finds clues to Jamie’s fate after Culloden. She returns to the 18th century, and discovers Jamie has married a widowed Laoghaire. Claire’s return nullifies their union as illegal. They try to retrieve some hidden treasure so that he can placate Laoghaire with a settlement. But his nephew Ian is captured by pirates and taken to the Caribbean. Jamie and Claire follow, and manage to rescue him from Geillis (who had escaped burning at the stake in season one). Claire and Jamie sail for Scotland, but are shipwrecked on the coast of Georgia.
In the British colony of North Carolina, Claire and Jamie seek to return to Scotland with Fergus, Marsali, and Ian. They visit the plantation of Jamie’s aunt Jocasta Cameron, where they see conditions of enslaved African Americans. Claire and Jamie decide to leave, and claim land that they name Fraser’s Ridge, which is already inhabited by Cherokee. Jamie reunites with Murtagh, now a blacksmith and leader of the Regulator movement. Lord John visits with Jamie’s son, Willy.
In the 1970s, Brianna rejects Roger’s marriage proposal. After learning her parents will die in a fire, Brianna travels through the stones. When Roger discovers Brianna has left, he follows her. They meet in Wilmington, North Carolina and enter into handfast marriage. Shortly after, they get into an argument causing Roger to leave. In Roger’s absence, Bonnet rapes Brianna. She reunites with her mother and finally, she meets her real father, Jamie Fraser. Soon after, Brianna discovers she is pregnant. Roger goes to Fraser’s Ridge where Jamie wrongly assumes that he is the rapist, and beats him. Young Ian sells Roger to the Mohawk. Discovering their mistake, they set off to rescue Roger, and Ian trades his freedom for Roger’s. Roger and Brianna are reunited at Jocasta’s plantation. Jamie receives instructions to kill Murtagh, who is a fugitive.
Jamie and Claire fight to retain their home at Fraser’s Ridge as the American Revolutionary War looms on the horizon. Brianna and Roger marry, and Governor Tryon further pushes Jamie to hunt down Murtagh, forcing Jamie to gather up a militia and counteract the Regulators. He struggles to balance keeping his godfather safe and fulfilling his duties to the British, especially under the eye of Lieutenant Knox, who is determined to find and kill Murtagh. Despite Murtagh’s pleas for Jocasta to return his love for her, she moves forward with her fourth marriage, choosing the safety and security of her plantation’s future over his idealism. Jamie’s loyalties are pushed to the breaking point at the Battle of Alamance, when Roger’s attempt to warn Murtagh fails and he is shot dead. Roger is captured and hanged by the British, but survives and is left traumatised by the experience. Jamie is left devastated in the months following the battle.
Meanwhile, Roger and Bree’s relationship is put to the test as there are signs of Stephen Bonnet’s reappearance, forcing Brianna to take matters into her own hands when she is captured by him. Eventually, Bree and Roger decide to go back through the stones when they realize Jemmy can too, as the future will be much safer for their son. The attempt fails, so they decide to stay in the past. Young Ian returns from his time with the Mohawk, and learns the truth about Claire, Brianna, and Roger’s origins when he confronts them with information passed to him by the Mohawk. Claire continues to subvert conventional medical practices by producing penicillin and covertly providing medical advice under a pseudonym, but her subversive advice backfires on her. Claire is abducted and gang raped by Lionel Brown and his men, but is subsequently rescued by Jamie, Roger and the earlier militia. Though Jamie returns Lionel’s body to his brother and mayor of Brownsville, Richard Brown subtly threatens Fraser’s Ridge and Jamie’s family.

In July 2012, it was reported that Sony Pictures Television had secured the rights to Gabaldon’s Outlander series, with Moore attached to develop the project and Jim Kohlberg (Story Mining and Supply Co) producing. Sony completed the deal with Starz in November 2012, and Moore hired a writing team in April 2013. That June, Starz picked up the Outlander project for a sixteen-episode order, and in August it was announced that John Dahl would be directing the first two episodes. Starz CEO Chris Albrecht later said that he had green-lit several genre projects, including Outlander, to shift the network’s series development toward “audiences that were being underserved” to “drive a real fervent fan base that then becomes the kind of advocacy group for the shows themselves”.
Calling it “a different kind of show than has ever been on, in my memory”, Albrecht believed that Outlander’s combination of fantasy, action, a strong central romance and a feminist focus would set it apart. Another distinguishing feature of the show is its use of Scottish Gaelic. Àdhamh Ó Broin is the language consultant and Griogair Labhruidh sang in Gaelic on the second season’s soundtrack.
On 15 August 2014, after only the pilot episode had aired, the network renewed the series for a second season of at least thirteen episodes, based on the second book in Gabaldon’s series, Dragonfly in Amber. On 01 June 2016, Starz renewed the series for a third and fourth season, which adapt the third and fourth Outlander novels, Voyager and Drums of Autumn.
On 09 May 2018, Starz renewed the series for a fifth and sixth season, which adapt The Fiery Cross and A Breath of Snow and Ashes, respectively, and each season will consist of twelve episodes.
On 14 March 2021, the series was renewed for a seventh season, also consisting of 12 episodes, and will adapt the seventh novel, An Echo in the Bone.
Moore said of the pilot: “There’s a lot of things we did in the first thirty to forty minutes that aren’t in the book or are compilations of things that happened in the book”. He emphasised that he did not want to present the time-travel dimension in a traditional special effects-laden science fiction manner. Describing the adaptation of the first season as “straightforward”, he explained: “it was always kind of clear what the basic structure was: Claire’s trying to get home, then she meets this guy, now she’s falling in love, now she has a conflict, will she go home. You lay it out in a very linear fashion”. Regarding the darker tone of the season’s second half, he said: “the show becomes more complicated and the emotional journey more wrenching”.
Regarding the second season and the source novel Dragonfly in Amber, Moore said:
The book is a more complicated structure in terms of how Diana [Gabaldon] wrote it … So it was not as easy an adaptation as the first season was … Book 2 is just a more complex book. It’s laid out very differently, as a result it took more wrangling to try to figure out how to translate this particular story into our season. There were more complications, there were more characters … It was a bigger task. The thing that gives me the most comfort is that Diana likes it a lot. She had said, ‘Oh, I really liked the way you did it. it was a difficult plot, I know, but I think you really found the essence of it. You really found the through line that really defines what this part of the journey is.’ … It’s not going to be a literal adaptation because I don’t think that’s possible with the second book … But I think it’s very much the same story, the major characters are all represented, the major scenes are all represented, and it still gets you to all the same places you want to go.
Gabaldon was employed as consultant to the TV production. When asked in June 2015 about the adaptation of the first season, she said: “I think they did condense it very effectively … I ended up getting most of the things that I felt strongly about in there. There were only a few instances where the most important stuff in my opinion didn’t get in”. In March 2015, she said of the scripts for season two: “The Parisian stuff is very good, and in fact I’m deeply impressed by the outlines I’ve seen … I think they’ve done a wonderful job of pulling out the most important plot elements and arranging them in a convincing way”. Gabaldon wrote the screenplay for the episode “Vengeance is Mine”.
According to Moore, the writing and pre-production for season four began while season three was still in active production. Gabaldon wrote an episode for the fifth season.
On 09 July 2013, it was announced that Sam Heughan had been cast as Jamie Fraser, the male lead. Tobias Menzies was the second actor cast, on 08 August, in dual roles of Frank and Jonathan Randall. Stephen Walters and Annette Badland were announced in the recurring roles of Angus Mhor and Mrs. Fitzgibbons on 29 August 2013, with Graham McTavish and Gary Lewis announced as the MacKenzie brothers on the 04 September. Series female lead Claire Beauchamp Randall was to be portrayed by Caitriona Balfe as announced on 11 September 2013. The series later added Lotte Verbeek as Geillis Duncan and Laura Donnelly as Jamie’s sister Jenny in October 2013.
In December 2013, Simon Callow was cast in the supporting role of Duke of Sandringham and Entertainment Weekly reported in April 2014 that Steven Cree would portray Ian Murray. Bill Paterson was cast as lawyer Ned Gowan in June 2014. Author Gabaldon has a cameo as Iona MacTavish in the August 2014 episode “The Gathering”. In August 2014 it was announced that Frazer Hines had been cast in the role of a prison warden in an episode to air in 2015. From 1966 to 1969, Hines had portrayed the Doctor Who character Jamie McCrimmon, who Gabaldon said had inspired the setting of the Outlander series and the character of Jamie Fraser. Hines plays Sir Fletcher Gordon, an English prison warden, in the May 2015 episode “Wentworth Prison”.
In June 2015, the series cast Andrew Gower as the Jacobite pretender Prince Charles Edward Stuart; Robert Cavanah as Jamie’s Scottish cousin Jared, a wine merchant and Jacobite living in Paris; Margaux Châtelier as Annalise de Marillac, Jamie’s French ex-lover; and Laurence Dobiesz as Alex Randall, Black Jack’s younger – and gentler – brother. Other cast added for season 2 include Romann Berrux as the French pickpocket Fergus, Rosie Day as the baronet’s daughter Mary Hawkins, Stanley Weber as Le Comte St. Germain, Dominique Pinon as healer Master Raymond, Marc Duret as French Minister of Finance Joseph Duverney, Frances de la Tour as Mother Hildegarde, and Audrey Brisson as Sister Angelique. In July 2015, Lionel Lingelser was cast as King Louis XV of France. Moore revealed in June 2015 that Verbeek would be returning in the role of Geillis. Richard Rankin was cast as Roger Wakefield in December 2015, while Sophie Skelton was chosen to portray Brianna Randall, Claire and Jamie’s daughter, in January 2016.
In August 2016, Starz announced that David Berry had been cast as Lord John William Grey for season three. In September, Wil Johnson was cast as Joe Abernathy, and John Bell as “Young Ian” Fraser Murray. In October, César Domboy was cast as an adult Fergus, and Lauren Lyle as Laoghaire’s daughter Marsali MacKimmie. Hannah James and Tanya Reynolds were cast as sisters Geneva and Isobel Dunsany in November 2016.
In October 2017, two season four roles were announced. Maria Doyle Kennedy was cast as Jamie’s aunt, Jocasta, and Ed Speleers as Stephen Bonnet, an Irish pirate and smuggler. The casting of Colin McFarlane as Jocasta’s slave butler Ulysses was announced in January 2018. The Cherokee and Mohawk people in seasons four and five were portrayed by members of First Nations from Canada who travelled to Scotland for the filming.
In May 2020, Berry announced that he would not be returning to Outlander for the sixth season.
In July 2013, British Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne confirmed that the production would benefit from the Creative Sector Tax Relief programme implemented in the UK in 2012, which extends film tax reliefs to high-end television productions. The Scottish government also agreed to help pay for the conversion of a warehouse complex on the outskirts of Cumbernauld in North Lanarkshire into a film studio. Principal photography began on location in Scotland in September 2013. The Cumbernauld studios were used for on set filming, with location shoots taking place at Doune Castle, Stirling; mills in East Linton, East Lothian; Newtonmore in the Scottish Highlands; Rothiemurchus Forest, Aviemore; quarries near Bathgate, West Lothian and Aberfoyle, Stirling, as well as Linlithgow Palace, Loch Rannoch in the Highlands, and Falkland and Culross in Fife. Such settings have attracted substantial numbers of international tourists.
Filming for season two began in April 2015, to air in spring 2016. The primary setting for the season is Paris, which Moore explained is being recreated using other locations. Some interiors were filmed on the show’s Scotland soundstages, while Prague was used for the exterior street scenes and the Palace of Versailles. In addition some palaces in the south of England which have French rooms and architecture were used as Parisian interiors and part of Versailles. Moore noted that season two of Outlander “will look completely different than season one” with a “richer, more dynamic kind of visual palette”. With the change of setting from Scotland to France, he said that “visually you’ve moved from the heavy woods and stone of season 1 into the finery of the Parisian apartments”. He explained:
Everything about Paris is so completely different, especially the costumes … It’s the most stylish city in the world during this time. A lot more money. A lot of finery. Scotland is featuring a lot of heavy wools and more organic colors. In Paris everyone wants to be a peacock. You’ve got a much wider palette of textiles and colors and styles than you did in Scotland. It’s a completely different world. And that kind of goes across the board for all the departments … There were really no sets or pieces of sets that we could use for Paris that we’d used for Scotland … There are carriages, there are servants with livery, there are props and furniture. It’s completely different. It’s a whole new show.
Production on season three began in September 2016 in Scotland, and filming took place in Cape Town from March to June 2017. Filming completed on 16 June 2017.
In August 2017, Moore said that for season four, locations in Scotland would double as 18th century America, and some of the mountains and rivers of North Carolina would be recreated using locations in Eastern Europe. Production for season four was completed in Scotland by 05 July 2018.
Production on season five, set primarily in North Carolina, began in Scotland in April 2019. Locations included Kinloch Rannoch (for Craigh na Dun), the Thomas Coats Memorial Baptist Church in Paisley, The Hermitage, Dunkeld in Perthshire and Milne Woods in Bridge of Allan. Much of the filming was completed at Wardpark Studios in Glasgow.
Production on season six was scheduled to begin in May 2020 but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Production eventually began in February 2021.
The music is composed by Bear McCreary. The title song is an adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s poem Sing me a Song of a Lad that is Gone, set to the tune of the Scottish folk song “The Skye Boat Song”. For the first half of season two, the second verse of the opening theme is sung in French to reflect the season’s French setting. For the second half of season three, the second verse of the opening theme has Caribbean music to reflect the season’s Jamaican setting. The fourth season opening theme has a colonial American sound.
Outlander premiered in the United States on 09 August 2014. Its first eight episodes aired through September, and the remaining eight episodes resumed in April 2015. The first-season finale aired on 30 May 2015.
Outlander debuted in Australia on SoHo on 14 August 2014, and began airing in Canada on Showcase on 24 August 2014. The series also premiered on 21 October 2014, in Ireland. In the United Kingdom, it was acquired by Amazon Prime Instant Video, where it premiered on 26 March 2015. In April 2015, The Herald reported that emails leaked in the Sony Pictures Entertainment hack suggested that the broadcast delay in the UK may have been due to sensitivity about the September 2014 Scottish independence referendum.
The second season of 13 episodes premiered on 09 April 2016, and the 13-episode third season on 10 September 2017. The fourth season premiered on 04 November 2018, and the fifth on 16 February 2020.
In New Zealand, Outlander was previously distributed by the video streaming service Lightbox. Following Sky’s acquisition of Lightbox, Sky’s streaming service Neon acquired the distribution rights to Outlander in New Zealand.
The first eight episodes averaged more than 5.1 million multiplatform viewers. In July 2015, noting Outlander’s strong ratings, its “vocal online fandom and a slew of think pieces tied to its feminist twists on the action genre”, Josef Adalian of Vulture credited Outlander as one of the series responsible for Starz’s increased success against competitors like Showtime. On 11 February 2020, cable provider Comcast moved the Starz Network from its base cable packages to an a la carte option. This occurred five days before the premiere of season five.
