Outlander is a drama television series based upon author Diana Gabaldon's historical time travel book series of the same name. Developed by Ronald D. Moore and produced by Sony Pictures Television and Left Bank Pictures for Starz, the show premiered on August 9, 2014. It stars Caitriona Balfe as Claire Randall, a married World War II nurse who in 1945 finds herself transported back to 1743 Scotland, where she encounters the dashing Highland warrior Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) and becomes embroiled in the Jacobite risings.
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 confidante 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 ancestry is assured, which she achieves 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. Twenty years after Claire's return, Frank has died, and 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, but is gravely injured, and spared execution. At Ardsmuir prison, he befriends the governor Lord John Grey, who later paroles him to work at an English estate, where Jamie fathers an illegitimate son, Willie. Jamie returns to Scotland and becomes a printer. Meanwhile, in 1948, Claire enrolls in medical school as she and Frank raise Jamie's daughter, Brianna, in Boston, Massachusetts. Frank is killed in a car accident while Brianna is in college. With the help of Roger Wakefield during a trip to Scotland with Brianna, Claire learns some clues to Jamie's whereabouts after Culloden, and returns to the 18th century to find him. She discovers that Jamie has married a widowed Laoghaire, though Claire's presence nullifies the union. Jamie and Claire try to retrieve some hidden treasure so Jamie can placate Laoghaire with a settlement, but during the attempt his nephew Ian is captured by pirates and carried off to the Caribbean. Jamie and Claire follow, and manage to rescue him from Geillis, who had escaped burning at the stake. Claire and Jamie set sail for Scotland, but are shipwrecked in the American colony of Georgia.
