Amazon has announced the return of Outlander for its fourth season. The first episode of series four launches on Monday 5th November, with new episodes available weekly. The UK Premiere will take place at MCM London Comic Con on Sunday 28th October.
Series Four of Outlander continues the story of time-traveling 20th-century doctor, Claire Fraser (Caitriona Balfe), and her 18th century Highlander husband, Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), as they try to make a home for themselves in colonial America. We find the Frasers in North Carolina, in a place called Fraser’s Ridge at yet another turning point in history – the cusp of the American Revolution. As Claire and Jamie build their life together in the rough and dangerous backcountry of North Carolina, they must negotiate a tenuous loyalty to the current British ruling class, despite Claire’s knowledge of the bloody rebellion to come. Along the way, the Frasers cross paths with notorious pirate and smuggler, Stephen Bonnet (Ed Speelers), in a fateful meeting that will come back to haunt the Fraser family. Meanwhile, in the 20th century, things heat up between Claire and Jamie’s daughter, Brianna Randall (Sophie Skelton), and Roger Wakefield (Richard Rankin), the historian who helped search for Jamie in the past. But as they grow closer, the young couple realise they have very different ideas about the future of their relationship. However, when Roger and Brianna search for proof that Brianna’s parents reunited in the 18th century, a shocking discovery makes them both consider following in Claire’s footsteps.
Diana Gabaldon’s eight-book Outlander series has sold more than 28 million copies worldwide and all the books have graced the New York Times best-sellers list.
