Tv Season Info

Season Four of "Outlander" continues the story of time-traveling 20th century doctor Claire Fraser and her 18th century Highlander husband Jamie Fraser as they try to make a home for themselves in colonial America. We find the Frasers in North Carolina, in a place called Fraser's Ridge at yet another turning point in history -- the cusp of the American Revolution. As Claire and Jamie build their life together in the rough and dangerous backcountry of North Carolina, they must negotiate a tenuous loyalty to the current British ruling class, despite Claire's knowledge of the bloody rebellion to come. Along the way, the Frasers cross paths with notorious pirate and smuggler Stephen Bonnet in a fateful meeting that will come back to haunt the Fraser family. Meanwhile, in the 20th century, things heat up between Claire and Jamie's daughter, Brianna Randall and Roger Wakefield, the historian who helped search for Jamie in the past. But as they grow closer, the young couple realize they have very different ideas about the future of their relationship. However, when Roger and Brianna search for proof that Brianna's parents reunited in the 18th century, a shocking discovery makes them both consider following in Claire's footsteps.

Critic Reviews for Outlander: Season 4

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

There's plenty about this season that's neither too hot, nor too cold, but just right. First and foremost among these strengths: a cast that grows stronger by the year, anchored by a thoughtful, often thrilling performance from Caitriona Balfe.

[It] serves as a tipping point for the season and a good one at that. It's never great to see family fight but when the fight is this entertaining one can't help but grab some popcorn and hope the rest of Season 4 finishes with the same enthusiasm.

Once Outlander Season 4 gets going, the remarkably still smoldering chemistry between the stealthily adept Balfe and Heughan is unveiled as stronger than ever on this side of the Atlantic - as does their talents together and individually.

I am certainly enjoying Season 4. The pace of Season 4 has simply resulted in less emotional depth for me, as I haven't had time to form attachments to characters and therefore don't feel thrilled or devastated or conflicted when things happen to them.

Even if it was a bumpy beginning, Season 4 of Outlander still has us eager for more of this adventurous family's time-bending story.

Their new surroundings also help refresh the action, even if some of the dialogue is still a little too ripe.
