For the last four years, fans of Diana Gabaldon’s romantic time-travel epic, Outlander, have followed the TV adaptation on Starz for a captivating trip back to the past. The long wait between seasons is almost over, with Outlander Season 4 set to premiere on Sunday, Nov. 4.
Over the past three seasons, Outlander has fairly faithfully brought Gabaldon’s stories to life with flair and style. Of course, 42 episodes is a lot of TV to get through for new and returning fans. But if you’ve got a few moments to spare, SYFY WIRE’s latest In 2 Minutes video will get you through everything you need to know about Outlander in a snap.
There’s a lot to unpack here, but it's primarily about a World War II nurse named Claire Randall, who found herself thrust back in time to the 18th century. That's where she met the dashing Jamie Fraser and his Scottish clansmen. It’s too bad that Claire's husband, Frank, was already waiting for her in the post-World War II future. It’s also very unfortunate that Claire’s knowledge and medical skills had her branded as a spy and a witch. And that was just in the first season!
However, Claire and Jamie’s love for each other couldn’t be denied. We go over their shared highs and lows in the video, but not everything made the final cut. Just be glad we gloss over the way that "Black Jack" Randall tortured Jamie. Trust us on that one. But we couldn’t resist bringing up Claire’s unfortunate encounter with France’s King Louis XV. It’s bad...
