Starz has announced the premiere date for Outlander, a wildly anticipated drama based on a series of best-selling novels.

The key art depicts Caitriona Balfe as Claire, a married British combat nurse from 1945 who mysteriously goes back in time to 1743 Scotland.

Once there, she’s torn between her husband Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies) and Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), a Scottish warrior who comes to her rescue.

If you're missing The Walking Dead, you can check out this British import for a zombie fix. The dead have been reintegrated with society, but it’s not like Resurrection. It's thought provoking and gory. Best of both worlds!

Outlander Quotes

Well, I must admit, the idea of grinding your corn does tickle me but it is not myself I'd be nominating for the position.

Dougal to Claire


Sing me a song, of a lass that is gone.
Say, could that lass be I?
Merry of soul she sailed on a day
Over the sea to Skye.

Theme song to Outlander
