“Outlander” is a historical drama series based
on the novel series by Diana Gabaldon, which has been a remarkable success for
Starz since its premiere season in 2014. The show developed by Ronald D. Moore
follows a former WWII military nurse named Claire Randall (Caitríona Balfe) as
she is mysteriously whisked from 1945 back in time to 1793, leaving behind her
unhappy marriage for a romance with Highland warrior Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan).
Despite bouncing back and forth between time periods, this romance remains the
central focus of “Outlander.”
