This is a spoiler-free review of the Outlander Season 4 premiere, titled “America the Beautiful,” which Starz debuted at New York Comic Con. Watch the new opening credits for Season 4 above. Outlander Season 4 premieres Sunday, Nov. 4 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Starz.
After the rip-roaring high seas adventure of Season 3, Outlander gets off to a slower start in its Season 4 premiere – although fans can still expect a few signature gut-punches (and a prerequisite sex scene) during the scene-setting hour.
The Season 3 finale found Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) washed up on a Georgia beach after a storm thoroughly wrecked their ship, and the new season picks up four months after their unintended arrival to the New World, with the Frasers and their extended family – including their nephew Ian (John Bell), surrogate son Fergus (César Domboy), and his wife, Marsali (Lauren Lyle) – now in North Carolina in 1767, attempting to raise enough money to buy passage back to Scotland.
