Wondering what happened to star-crossed lovers Jamie and Claire after that suspenseful end to season three? Fortunately, we won’t have to wait too long as it’s been announced that the fourth season of Outlander is coming to Australia this November — and will air on Foxtel at the same time as the U.S.
It’s been nothing but “Droughtlander” since Outlander aired its third season last December. But happily, good news has finally come with the announcement that season four will be airing this November.
Season four of Outlander will be based on the fourth book of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander saga, Drums of Autumn. As per the author’s website, this season’s story will revolve around Claire, Jamie, and his nephew Ian as they “seek to find a place for themselves in the colony of North Carolina, treading a dangerous line between Governor Tryon’s patronage and Claire’s knowledge of the brewing revolution in America.”
What’s next for our favourite star-crossed lovers as they say goodbye to Scotland and enter a whole new world in season four? You’ll have to stay tuned to Foxtel to find out this November!
