The storyline of season 2 of Outlander will be based on the second novel in the series Outlander, which consists of 8 books, written by Diane Gebldon. The producers on the series have also noted that they had been pushed to the decision to continue with the project Outlander by critics and audiences alike, which fully supported the first season.

A central part in the storyline of Outlander is given to the story of one of the Scottish combat nurses who lived during the Second World War. In 1945 Claire Randall was mysteriously transported to the Middle Ages, year 1743, where she was immediately thrown into an unknown world where her life was threatened.
