Starz’s time-traveling love story Outlander continues with season four when 20th-century doctor Claire Fraser (Caitriona Balfe) and her 18th-century Highlander husband Jamie (Sam Heughan) try to make a home for themselves in colonial America.
“This is just the start of what America will become,” she says in the trailer.
They build their lives together in the rough and dangerous back country of North Carolina, negotiating a tenuous loyalty to the current British ruling class, despite Claire’s knowledge of the American Revolution to come. Along the way, they cross paths with notorious pirate and smuggler Stephen Bonnet in a fateful meeting that will come back to haunt the Fraser family.
Meanwhile in the 20th century, things are complicated between Brianna Randall (Sophie Skelton), Claire and Jamie’s daughter, and Roger Wakefield, the historian who helped Claire search for Jamie in the past. But when Roger and Brianna search for proof that Brianna’s parents reunited in the 18th century, a shocking discovery forces both of them to consider following in Claire’s footsteps.
The show is based on a series of novels by Diana Gabaldon, and has been renewed through season six.
Outlander is executive produced by Ronald D. Moore, Maril Davis, Toni Graphia, Matthew B. Roberts and Andy Harries. It is produced by Tall Ship Productions, Story Mining & Supply Company and Left Bank Pictures in association with Sony Pictures Television.
Season four premieres November 4 on Starz.
