'Outlander' finally has a home on British TV. The Scottish drama is coming to More4, more than three years after it started airing in the US.

The sci-fi historical series has been available in the UK before, but only on the Amazon Prime Video streaming service. This will be its first transmission on British TV.

It's based on the 'Outlander' series of novels by Diana Gabaldon, and tells of a young nurse named Claire Randall (played by Caitriona Balfe), who is sent back in time to 1740s Jacobite Scotland. There her husband's ancestor Black Jack Randall (played by Tobias Menzies, who also plays Claire's husband Frank) threatens her life.

Thankfully, she's rescued by local rogue Jamie (played by Sam Heughan).


Both Menzies and Balfe were nominated for Golden Globes for their performances. In the US, it airs on the Starz network, with series three due in September.

The first series is expected to land on More4 in the coming weeks.
