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 (10) | 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.

There are spectral moments, as hauntings happen and wraiths appear; a reminder of the story's eerie origin. But out of the darkness always comes this glowing love story that has its own exquisite rhyme and reason.

Nov 1, 2018 | Full Review…

Outlander is still highly Outlander-y, which will be heartening for its many fans to hear. But it's also not without moments that drag and some choppy narrative transitions.

Oct 31, 2018 | Full Review…

You would have to do a lot to try to make two people as radiant as Balfe and Heughan look like frontier fogeys, so I'm pleased the show doesn't really try.

Feb 10, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Confusing? Totally, but for a show about time travel it is entirely in keeping that it should be all over the shop.

Jul 15, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

Dec 17, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Nov 5, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Nov 12, 2018 | Rating: 78/100 | Full Review…

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

Nov 6, 2018 | Full Review…

Outlander brings its Scottish charm to the New World.

Audience Reviews for Outlander: Season 4

  • Jun 17, 2020
    It's a great series, and I've enjoyed the history, the drama, the melodrama, the changes of scenery, the set design, the time travel element, but my God the excessive amount of passionate kisses and embraces between Jamie and Claire make me thankful for the advance 10 sec feature on my streaming app. I get they're making up for 20 lost years, but still...I haven't seen that much pent up stretched out steam since the last Viagra "be ready when she's ready" ad.

    Irritating modern disrespect from the daughter of Claire and sometimes Claire herself, very unconvincing taking the social impertinence of modern times into completely different time-period, values and mind-set- which kind of destroys the believability of the show. Please take the brat-ness out of these two characters!

    We discovered Outlander at the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis. Great outstanding
  • Feb 24, 2020
    I want to see the season 4 . It must be as terrific as the previous seasond
  • Feb 24, 2020
    The North Carolina setting was beautiful and provided new and different obstacles. I am no expert (so I could be very wrong), but I thought the show handled slavery (although by the end they're all just chill with Jocasta and her owning slaves) and native americans (they were neither just too pure for this world, nor bloodthirsty savages), which was a pleasant surprise. Claire and Jamie continue to be very entertaining. I just have to say that I do not care about Brianna or Roger in the slightest. Perhaps it's only me, but I found them both bland and unlikable. Truly, they constantly pulled away from more interesting characters. Brianna manages to spark some emotion at points, but the only emotion Roger sparks is anger. As much as I complain, I did enjoy the season. I do hope Brianna and Roger either get played down or become more likable. I must say I also appreciate less gratuitous sex scenes and rape (not no rape, but less rape for sure).

    Instantly addicting. The story is fantastic but the characters are what bring you back.
  • Aug 10, 2019
    the France part was ridiculous, 3d season was boring, and this one has finally been much closer to the good old Scottish times, just set in the interesting to learn "New World" to us. I dinnae ken why the reviews are lower for this season! ps: prob bcs it loooks less like a porn now

    Really solid season with the show starting to take on darker tones than previous seasons. New characters are introduced and side characters begin to take on larger roles. A really solid seasons.
