The Umbrella Academy certainly isn’t the most usual thought for those who love Claire and Jamie’s story. After all, this doesn’t involve standing stones, a love story, or even history. However, it does have a few things in common.

One of those things is time travel, but I’m not going to explain how that is involved. You’ll want to check out the series to find out who is time traveling, why they time traveled, and where they went to.

The other reason Outlander fans will love the series is for the family. This is about a group of siblings who come together after the death of their father. It’s soon clear that their father wasn’t the warmest of men and there’s something special about each of the seven siblings.

Don’t forget to check out where the series ranks in the full list.
