TV show description:
This fantasy-dramatic TV show is based on the series of Outlander novels by Diana Gabaldon and takes place in both the 1940s and the 1740s.

Quick-witted and beautiful Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) is a married combat nurse from 1945 who finds herself mysteriously thrown back in time to 1743 Scotland. Claire and Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, are forced to marry to save her life. A passionate affair is ignited that tears Claire’s heart between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

Jamie is intelligent, principled, and (by 18th century standards) educated, and worldly> He has a tenderness and compassion that stands out in contrast to his contemporaries. A natural leader of men, he has no political ambitions or desire for battlefield glories. Instead, he wishes to remove the price on his head and return to his family’s ancestral farm.

Claire’s husband in her home time period is Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies), an intellectual and an academic. He served in British Intelligence section MI6 during the war as a spymaster, and was responsible for sending men on dangerous missions — some of whom never returned. With the war now over, he’s looking forward to a new career as a historian at Oxford when his wife mysteriously disappears in the Highlands.

Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies) is a Captain in the English Army back in 1743 who has been posted in Scotland during a time when rebellion is in the air. As an officer in an occupying army, he’s seen and done terrible and horrific things in the undeclared war in the Highlands. He’s also a sadist who finds joy in the torment of others — a secret side to himself that he loathes and also has an unhealthy obsession with both Claire and Jamie.

A skilled and experienced warrior, Dougal MacKenzie (Graham McTavish) is the War Chieftain of Clan MacKenzie. His older brother Colum is the ruling Laird, but Dougal is his loyal right hand and the true muscle. He is courageous on the battlefield and is feared by many.

The Laird of the MacKenzie clan is Colum MacKenzie (Gary Lewis), Jamie’s maternal uncle and brother to Dougal. Colum suffers from Toulouse-Lautrec Syndrome, a degenerative disease that renders his legs immobile at times, and fills his days with a great amount of pain. Unable to rule by brawn, he must rely on his cunning and intellect to lead his clan.

Mysterious and dark, Murtagh Fitzgibbons (Duncan Lacroix) dutifully watches over his godson Jamie. Although a reserved man, he’s a very loyal godfather, and lives his life by a strict a code. And he’s more than happy to let his reputation and fists do the talking.

The wife of the procurator fiscal and a good friend to Claire, Geillis Duncan (Lotte Verbeek) has such advanced knowledge of herbs and plants that many believe she is a witch. Geillis is a master manipulator.

It wasn’t cancelled – it just had it’s season finale. It will return, but if it doesn’t I will definitely cancel Starz. Outlander is the only reason I ordered Starz in the first place.

It was the mid-season finale. The show returns in April (I know, it’s a long time).

Thank you for your reply. Good to know exactly when it will be returning. Would love to resume watching this program sooner, but this type of quality takes time. Excellent series. So glad to see this kind of quality.

I’ve watched every episode with anticipation. Haven’t heard this much ancestrial brouge since childhood from nearby Celtic Canadians. While familiar to my ear, I sometimes have to watch episodes more than once to catch it all. Played the bagpipes as a child. Still have a set with chanter & music book in closet, haven’t played since a young lass. When does new season start? Have Starz just to watch Outlander. Exciting & really different than anything else offered.

This is one of the best interpretations of a novel I have seen. It should not be cancelled. Several of my friends watch it.

I was enthralled when I read the Outlander novels. I find the series on TV absolutely entertaining and I believe the actors really make you feel like the novels have come to life. This series must continue until the end. I will be disappointed if this series is not renewed another year. How can you ever end a series in the middle of a wonderful story?

I loved the books and I love the series. STARZ had better not even think about canceling it!

I really don’t want to watch any other series as they will cancelled it before you see the ending and its like reading a book you get to the end and fine the pages have been ripped out.

Barbara Gilman September 23, 2014 at 6:52 pm

Oh, this series must continue. With the number of books in the series, if the writing and actors continue to do a good job, Starz can run Outlander to the end of the books. Great fun!
