Plot Synopsis

Adapted from Diana Gabaldon's best-selling books, OUTLANDER is a one-hour drama series that follows the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743, where she is immediately thrown into an unknown world where her life is threatened. 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. The first 16-episode season of OUTLANDER debuted with the first episode setting multiplatform viewing records, surpassing 5 million views in the first week alone, drawing equal male and female viewership. OUTLANDER returned with the remaining eight episodes from Season 1 on Saturday, April 4, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT on Starz. As the season continues, Claire and Jamie's relationship is tested, and Claire must reconcile her modern mindset with this 18th century world. Ruthless redcoats, volatile clan politics, and even a witch trial force Jamie and Claire to escape to a new home. Just when their life as a married couple begins to take shape, Jamie is once again drawn into Captain Randall's darkness. Ultimately, Claire discovers there is a fate worse than death as she struggles to save Jamie's heart, as well as his soul. Season 2 of OUTLANDER premiered on Saturday, April 9, 2016 from 9-10:05pm ET/PT on Starz, immediately following an eight-hour marathon (1:05-9pm) of encore episodes from the first season. The 13-episode second installment is based upon the second of eight books in Diana Gabaldon's international best-selling Outlander series, entitled "Dragonfly in Amber." Instead of swords and guns, Claire and Jamie are armed with political savvy and the finest 1700s Parisian fashion as they embark on their new mission -- infiltrating the French aristocracy and rewriting history. Book Two of OUTLANDER begins as Claire and Jamie arrive in France, hell-bent on infiltrating the Jacobite rebellion led by Prince Charles Stuart, and stopping the battle of Culloden. With the help of his cousin Jared, a local wine merchant, Jamie and Claire are thrown into the lavish world of French society, where intrigue and parties are abundant, but political gain proves far less fruitful. Altering the course of history presents challenges that begin to weigh on the very fabric of their relationship. However, armed with the knowledge of what lies ahead, Claire and Jamie must race to prevent a doomed Highland uprising and the extinction of Scottish life as they know it. Season 3 of OUTLANDER premiered Sunday, September 10, 2017 at 8pm ET/PT on Starz. The third season includes 13 episodes based upon "Voyager," the third of eight books in Diana Gabaldon's international best-selling Outlander series. The third season of OUTLANDER picks up right after Claire travels through the stones to return to her life in 1948. Now pregnant with Jamie's child, she struggles with the fallout of her sudden reappearance and its effect on her marriage to her first husband, Frank. Meanwhile, in the 18th century, Jamie suffers from the aftermath of his doomed last stand at the historic battle of Culloden, as well as the loss of Claire. As the years pass, Jamie and Claire attempt to make a life apart from one another, each haunted by the memory of their lost love. The budding possibility that Claire can return to Jamie in the past breathes new hope into Claire's heart...as well as new doubt. Separated by continents and centuries, Claire and Jamie must find their way back to each other. As always, adversity, mystery, and adventure await them on the path to reunion. And the question remains: When they find each other, will they be the same people who parted at the standing stones, all those years ago? Fourteen months earlier -- on Wednesday, June 1, 2016 -- Starz announced it ordered "Book Three" and "Book Four" for OUTLANDER. This is the first multi-book pickup for the series, assuring the series will run for several more years. "Book Four" will based on the fourth book in the series, "Drums of Autumn."

Season 4 of OUTLANDER premieres November 2018 on Starz, with 13 episodes based upon "Drums of Autumn," the fourth of the eight books in Diana Gabaldon's international best-selling "Outlander" series.

Additionally, Starz has already renewed OUTLANDER for two more seasons, taking the series through its sixth season. "Fans can rest assured their beloved Claire and Jamie will be back facing new challenges, adversaries and adventures in Seasons 5 and 6 as we delve into American history and continue the story of the Frasers as they settle in the New World," said Starz President and CEO Chris Albrecht. Starz will continue to partner with Sony Pictures Television on this multi-book, 24-episode pick-up for OUTLANDER. Seasons 5 and 6 will each play out over 12 episodes respectively and will be based on material from the fifth book in the Outlander series, entitled "The Fiery Cross," as well as the sixth book in the series, "A Breath of Snow and Ashes."
