Author Diana Gabaldon has two very extensive sets of novels, the Outlander series and the Lord John Grey series. Fans of Gabaldon’s work are probably aware that her Outlander series is going to be made into a television show.
Outlander is the official title of the show and the first season will be based off of the first novel. Entertainment Weekly recently shared an exclusive image from the show that features Caitriona Balfe and Tobias Menzies as their characters.
The story follows Claire (Balfe), a 1940s combat nurse who is travelling through Scotland with her husband Frank (Menzies). However, she falls through a time-travelling portal and ends up in the 18th century. Here she falls in love with a young warrior named Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan).
Outlander is set to be premiering on the Starz network sometime this year. Are you looking forward to this series? Are you a fan of Diana Gabaldon’s work? Be sure to check back in for more details and exclusive news!
