The OUTLANDER television series is adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s New York Times bestselling OUTLANDER book series. The eight-book series has sold more than 26 million copies worldwide and has graced the New York Times best-seller list six times. OUTLANDER – which spans the genres of romance, science fiction, history, and adventure in one epic tale – follows the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743 and thrown by circumstances beyond her control into the arms of Jamie Fraser, a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior.

OUTLANDER’s inaugural season aired on Starz (Saturdays at 9pm) in two parts: the first eight episodes from August 9 – September 27, 2014; the second half of the season aired April 4 – May 30, 2015. The series garnered much popular and critical acclaim including a People’s Choice Award for Favorite Cable Sci-Fi/Fantasy Show and the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Most Exciting New Series. Season Two was picked-up for 13 episodes and is set to premiere Spring 2016.

The series is produced by Sony Pictures Television in association with Tall Ship Productions, Story Mining & Supply Company, and Left Bank Pictures.
