How have you been holding up since Outlander season three ended? If you’re anything like us, you’re hungry for any information about the upcoming season currently under production in Scotland. What we wouldn’t give for just one glimpse of Claire and Jamie! Thankfully, Starz understands what we’re going through and has given us a sneak peek at an exciting Outlander season 4 clip.
Entertainment Weekly hinted last week that Starz planned to broadcast a short scene from Outlander season four on Sunday night. The two-minute teaser followed an Outlander marathon and gave viewers a taste of what life will be like for the Frasers now that they have arrived in the American Colonies.
The first look is only available to subscribers on the official Starz Outlander page, and features a tense scene of Jamie and Claire being stopped by English redcoats. Season four of Outlander is based on Diana Gabaldon’s Drums of Autumn, the fourth book in the bestselling series, and readers will be familiar with this scene. We won’t spoil it for you, but season four promises to be full of adventure for our beloved star-crossed lovers.
Along with Caitriona Balfe (Claire) and Sam Heughan (Jamie), several other actors are expected to reprise their roles in season four, including Sophie Skelton (Brianna) and Richard Rankin (Roger). They will be joined by some new faces, including Ed Speelers (Downton Abbey) as the villainous Irish pirate Stephen Bonnet and Maria Doyle Kennedy (Orphan Black, Downton Abbey) as Jamie’s Aunt Jacosta.
According to executive producer Matthew B. Roberts, the theme of the new season is “home.” In an interview with Entertainment Weekly Roberts said:
“Over the last three seasons, Jamie and Claire didn’t know where they are going to live,” he says. “They never plant their feet. Now they’re getting to that place that they can call home. But the meaning of home is different for people. That’s what we will dig into in season four.”
We can’t wait to see what’s in store! Outlander season four will air this fall on Starz.
