Upon arriving in France, Claire and Jamie quickly realise that in order to stop the Jacobite rebellion led by Prince Charles Stuart, they must integrate themselves into the extravagant high society that surrounds him. Jamie's wine-merchant cousin Jared leaves for a business trip and entrusts Jamie to take over in his absence, providing the perfect cover for him and Claire to investigate and make strategic connections without drawing attention.

Critic Reviews for Outlander Season 2

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (7)

The Jamie and Claire show moves to Paris - and in a sense, Frank and Jack do as well. A nice change of locale, and tone.

Outlander continues to be a great and fun watch. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 11, 2018 | Full Review…

To put it plainly: it is one of the smartest and most proactive shows on television, embracing love and passion and intrigue and refusing to apologize

Oct 26, 2017 | Full Review…

The stuff that sets Outlander apart from the rest of the pack doesn't come at the expense of Serious Television values like realism and nuance.

Aug 14, 2017 | Full Review…

Considering what the show has accomplished so far, I'm pretty much committed to this weird, wonderful, time-traveling adventure until the end.

Dec 31, 2016 | Full Review…

If we've learned anything from Outlander's epic second season it's that history does repeat itself, no matter how hard a certain time travelling nurse tries to stop it.

Aug 16, 2016 | Full Review…

Outlander is a welcome addition to the sexed-up, faux-historical drama genre that Game Of Thrones still dominates.

Jul 13, 2016 | Full Review…

This Parisian jaunt - while both gripping and beautiful to look at​ - is shaping up to be a rather depressing excursion for our beloved Frasers.

Apr 18, 2016 | Full Review…

Outlander's appeal remains focused on the interplay between Claire and Jamie, a union of two very different people joined in mutual attraction, lust, and a meeting of the minds.

Apr 11, 2016 | Full Review…

The Ronald D. Moore-created series based on the best-selling books written by Diana Gabaldon could have faltered easily into a sophomore slump, but avoids those pitfalls superbly in an hour of television you won't want to miss.
