Tv Season Info

Upon arriving in France, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) quickly realize that in order to stop the Jacobite rebellion led by Prince Charles Stuart (Andrew Gower), they must integrate themselves into the extravagant high society that surrounds him. Jamie's wine-merchant cousin Jared (Robert Cavanah) 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. Changing the course of history proves to be more difficult than they had imagined, putting Claire and Jamie's relationship to the test in ways that most marriages never have to endure. Season 2 of this historical drama also stars Tobias Menzies, Graham McTavish and Duncan Lacroix.

Critic Reviews for Outlander: Season 2

All Critics (20) | 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.

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

The Mary Sue

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.

August 16, 2016 | Full Review…

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

The Straits Times (Singapore)

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

Digital Spy

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.
