If it feels like absolutely ages since a new episode of Outlander landed on your screens… well, then you’d be right.
We haven’t had a new episode of Outlander premiere since December 2017 when the show’s season three finale aired, and while there’s still a little bit of time to wait until we see the next chapter in Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) story, at least now we have a date to count down to.
We already knew that new episodes would be landing on Starz in the US in November, but now the channel has confirmed an exact premiere date – so mark your calendars, US Outlander fans: the series will return on Sunday, November 4.
In the UK, the show airs on Amazon Prime Video so it’s likely we’ll be getting to see Outlander pretty close to its US airdate, usually the next day, before More4 airs the series on broadcast TV much, much later on.
Outlander‘s fourth season will draw from the fourth book in Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander novel series, Drums of Autumn, which sees Claire and Jamie trying to find a place for themselves in the colony of North Carolina at a time when Claire knows a revolution in America is building.
Season three ended as a violent storm shipwrecked them in America, meaning season four begins with the pair reuniting with Jamie’s family in the Colonies, while in Boston, Brianna and Roger become privy to some information that could alter the course of the Frasers’ lives.
Earlier this year, Starz renewed Outlander for a fifth and a sixth season, and Caitriona Balfe later told Digital Spy that there would likely be a slightly longer break than normal between season four and five.
“We have an extended hiatus, we have about seven months off,” she said.
As for what we can expect from season four, Caitriona explained: “It’s a whole new world, because we are in America. It’s Colonial times, it’s pre-revolution, Claire and Jamie are settlers in a new land.”
Sam added: “There’s a lot that we’ve had to squash into one season, so it’s jam-packed.”
Outlander returns to Starz in the US on Sunday, November 4. Amazon Prime Video in the UK in November.
