One day World War II nurse Claire Randall is visiting Inverness, Scotland, with her husband. The next, she’s transported back in time to 1743.

Outlander, the celebrated drama based on Diana Gabaldon’s historical time-travel series, is entering its fifth season. Last we saw Claire, she was living in the British colony of North Carolina, in an America that’s already starting to bubble over into revolution. Will Claire find a way to return to Scotland before the powder keg is lit?

Here’s everything you need to know to watch Outlander season 5.
