“This is the start of what America will become. People will come here in their thousands, all hoping to live the American Dream,” says Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) in the new trailer for Outlander Season 4. The show, which returns this November, reunites the WWII combat nurse with hubbie Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), as they set off for new shores – specifically, the shores of North America.
Their efforts to settle in North Carolina, though, are inevitably threatened by all manner of happenstances: Claire encounters mysterious fillings from the future, Jamie finds himself in trouble, and daughter Brianna (back in the future) finds out a dramatic surprise about her parents. And, of couse, there’s the small matter of meeting Jamie’s Aunt Jocasta (Maria Doyle Kennedy) and pirate Stephen Bonnet (Downton Abbey’s Ed Speleers). “A dream for some can be a nightmare for others,” notes Jamie in the new trailer.
The 13-episode season is based upon Drums of Autumn, the fourth of Diana Gabaldon’s novels. With another two seasons already given the green light, you can expect that nightmare to go on for some time.
Outlander Season 4 will premiere on Amazon Prime Video in the UK on 5th November, with episodes arriving weekly – within 24 hours of their broadcast on Starz in the USA.
Here’s the video:
Trailer: Outlander Season 4 to premiere this November
4th August 2018
“I want us to make a home together.” That’s Claire to Jamie in the first trailer for Outlander’s fourth season, which will premiere on our screens this November.
Starz’s time-travelling drama, based on Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling book series, follows the story of Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe), a married WW11 combat nurse from 1945 who mysteriously falls back in time to 1743 where she is immediately thrown into an unknown world and her life is threatened. When she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate relationship is ignited that tears Claire’s heart between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
Starring Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan and produced by Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Gallactica), the historical epic blends political intrigue, bloody battles and steamy romance like no other show. Indeed, the show has been such a success that Season 5 and 6 have already been commissioned.
Fortunately, fans won’t have to wait much longer for their Season 4 fix, with Starz unveiling the trailer this week for the fourth run, confirming that it will arrive in a matter of months. It picks up from the end of Season 3, which swept the Frasers away to America, where they are now looking to settle in North Carolina. Judging by the trailer, we can expect romance, danger, mysterious silver fillings from the future. Season 4, which will span 13 episodes, is based upon Drums of Autumn, the fourth of Gabaldon’s eight novels. It will see Balfe and Heughan joined by Maria Doyle Kennedy as Jocasta, Jamie’s strong willed Aunt, and Ed Speleers as Irishman Stephen Bonnet, a pirate and smuggler.
The exact isn’t known yet, but we do know that episodes will air on Amazon Prime Video in the UK, arriving, as usual, within 24 hours of their US debut. Here’s the teaser:
