If you love romance and historical dramas, you may want to know how to watch Outlander online for free to not miss a second of Claire and Jamie’s love story.

Outlander, based on Diana Gabaldon’s book series of the same title, premiered on August 9, 2014, on Starz. The show stars Caitríona Balfe as Claire Randall, a married World War II military nurse from Scotland in 1945, who finds herself transported back in time to 1743, where she meets and falls in love with a Highland Warrior named Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan.) Since its premiere more than six years ago, Outlander has been one of Starz’s most successful series, with an average of 5.1 million viewers for it first season. The show even credited by Vulture in 2015 as the reason Starz has surpassed competitor premium cable networks like Showtime.

In an interview with Gold Derby in 2018, Outlander’s creator Ronald D. Moore opened up about the process of adapting Gabaldon’s books for TV. “We always start with the book,” he said. “At the beginning of the process we have assistants and researchers and people in the writers’ room who literally break down the entire book, chapter by chapter and then scene by scene.” He continued, “You put the whole thing up on these big white boards that essential lay out the major plot story. Step one is to break it down into 13 hours. OK, what are the basic chapters of our story? You kind of quickly realize what’s gonna fall out and what’s gonna have to get condensed and moved around in that part of the process.”

Moore explained that this is the step where decides what from the books makes it into the show and what he has to cut. “Once you’ve sort of decided these are the 13 hours then you go deeper into each individual show. And even within that individual show we will always start with the scene breakdown,” he said. “What was in the book in this section of that book? You sort of start realizing that to make an hour of television out of this, what are we gonna condense, what are we gonna move around?” He continued, “Some things that are iconic moments to the fans — whether it’s a line of dialogue or a scene or even just a visual — sometimes doesn’t fit there. But we’ll set it aside and go, we’re gonna figure out a way to work this in later, even if it’s next season or two years from now. So there’s certain things that feels like maybe we’ve forgotten but we never really forget and we’re always looking for ways to work them back into the narrative.”

While he understands fans’ disappointment when certain scenes from the books don’t make it into the show, he promises that the whole Outlander team approaches the process with “respect” and “love” for the novels. “It’s a very subjective process, in all honestly. Every writer and every showrunner would do it slightly differently. We approach the books with a lot respect and a lot of love,” he said.
