The Droughtlander may not be over yet, but Starz just served up one super-sized, super-sexy Outlander trailer to help get you through until November. Based on Diana Gabaldon’s Drums of Autumn, the fourth book in her best-selling series, the fourth season of Outlander follows Jamie a (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) to Colonial America, where the timey-wimey lovebirds try to build a new life for themselves in the new world. “Do you know what lies beyond those trees? This is just the start of what America will become. People come here in the thousands, all hoping to live the American dream,” Claire says. But here’s the rub… you know what else is beyond those trees? Slavery, for one thing — a prospect neither Claire or Jamie will tolerate. And then there’s the brewing revolution against the British. Needless to say, there’s plenty of historical drama headed the Frasers’ way.
Meanwhile in the 20th century, Claire and Jamie’s daughter Brianna Randall (Sophie Skelton) maintains a complicated relationship with historian Roger Wakefield (Richard Rankin), and the pair makes a shocking discovery that makes them consider following in Claire’s footsteps.
Outlander returns to Starz on November 4. Watch the trailer below.
