‘Outlander’ Season 4 preview: New trailers, teaser clips and story hints released

Outlander is back this weekend and we’ve got some new goodies to get fans even more excited.

Season 4 begins in the USA this Sunday night on Starz.

Watch a preview, featuring interviews with the cast:

Based on the fourth book in author Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series, Drums of Autumn, the new 13-episode season 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.

Here’s a new official story synopsis for Season 4: “As Claire and Jamie build their lives together in the rough and dangerous back country of North Carolina, they must negotiate a tenuous loyalty to the current British ruling class, despite Claire’s knowledge of the American Revolution to come.

“Along the way, the Frasers cross paths with notorious pirate and smuggler Stephen Bonnet (Ed Speleers) 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 (Richard Rankin), 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 makes both of them consider following in Claire’s footsteps.”

Watch four brief new teasers:

Each episode of Season 4 will be available to watch in the UK on Amazon Prime Video the day after its broadcast in the USA.
