What is Outlander season 4 about?
Speaking about the new season actress Caitriona told Elle: “We see Jamie and Claire as immigrants, as pioneers, and that’s a very interesting thing to watch.”
A short synopsis for Outlander season four reads: “Season Four of ”Outlander“ continues the story of time-travel 1960s Claire Fraser and her 18th Century husband Jamie Fraser as they try to make a home for themselves in the rough and dangerous ‘New World’ of America.”
This season is based on the fourth book from the Outlander novel series, called Drums of Autumn and is set before and during the American Wars of Independence.
Author Gabaldon explained the plot of Outlander season four in deeper detail on her website.
She wrote: “[Claire and Jamie] seek to find a place for themselves in the colony of North Carolina.
“They tread a dangerous line between Governor Tryon’s (Tim Downie) patronage and Claire’s knowledge of the brewing revolution in America between the help of Jamie’s Aunt Jocasta, last of his MacKenzie kin and the unwanted obligations of her slave-run plantation.”
Outlander season 4, episode 2 airs Sunday, November 11 on Starz and Monday, November 12 on Amazon Prime
