The full trailer for Outlander season 4 is here. Starring Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe as star-crossed lovers, Jamie and Claire, the historical time travel series is based on Diana Gabaldon’s series of novels of the same name. Debuting in 2014, the show has slowly built its own fan community who are passionate about what comes next for the couple. After nine months since its third season wrapped up, the rollout of this brand new look is proof that Droughtlander is nearly over and loyal viewers cannot be more thrilled.
Season 4 will mine narrative inspiration from Gabaldon’s fourth book titled Drums of Autumn which follows Jamie and Claire to the American colonies. It can be remembered that season 3 ended with the two washed up in Georgia after surviving the shipwreck. Initially hoping that they’ll be able to build a better life in their new location, the couple will settle at River Run, the home of Jamie’s Aunt Jocasta (Marie Doyle Kennedy). Unfortunately, little did they know that fresh danger awaits them, and with no trusted ally, they find themselves having no one to rely on but each other.
Posted on Starz’s official YouTube account is the official trailer for Outlander season 4. It follows the release of a first-look teaser back in July and includes several of the scenes that were previously shown, as well as never-before-seen sequences from the upcoming outing. However, the biggest takeaway from the clip is Bree, played by Sophie Skelton (who is still in the 1900s and getting closer to Roger, played by Richard Rankin), in Craigh na Dun getting ready to travel back in time. Watch the full video above.
Since the emotional season 2 finale where Jamie had to send a pregnant Claire to her own timeline before the Battle of Culloden began, fans have been eagerly waiting for him to meet his daughter. Despite having not met, Jamie knows what Bree looks like thanks to the photos Claire brought with her when she went back in time to look for her Scottish lover. Readers of Gabaldon’s books know how significant it is in the overall story (not to mention emotional) when the two finally see each other face-to-face. Luckily, fans won’t have to wait for too long since it’s confirmed that the much-anticipated meeting will take place sometime in the upcoming outing. It’ll be curious to know, however, if Starz has any plans of changing elements of their encounter. For the most part, the people behind the series have been doing a good job in closely following the books, which is greatly appreciated by those who were fans of the novels first.
Whether Jamie and Brianna meet early or late in the season, fans won’t have to worry that there won’t be enough time to explore their eventual relationship. Outlander scored another two season-renewal (12 episodes each) back in May which means that at least The Fiery Cross and A Breath of Snow and Ashes will be translated to the small screen.
