The “Outlander” season 4 air date has finally been announced. It was previously revealed that the show will premiere on November, but now the fans can start a countdown for the show’s return. A new behind-the-scenes picture has also been released online.

Starz has announced online [see below] that the popular time-travelling TV series will return on Nov. 4. International Business Times Australia previously reported that this will be the air date of the show.

The announcement came with a new behind-the-scenes picture of the next season. The picture shows Jamie (Sam Heughan), Claire (Caitriona Balfe), and Marsali (Lauren Lyle) standing in a town, looking intense.

The Frasers will be in American colony of North Carolina in the next season, where Jamie will build a home. The behind-the-scenes picture shows the Frasers in a town, surrounded by people, all gathered to watch something.

A trailer of the next season had teased a public hanging that Jamie will be particularly concerned about. The Frasers were also seen transporting some suspicious cargo in the middle of the night after the hanging in one of the teasers.

The only one missing in the picture is Fergus (César Domboy). The fate of the character was unknown in the season 3 finale, but the teasers of the show confirm that character survived the shipwreck. It remains to be seen if Fergus will get into some trouble with the authorities in the American colonies.

Commenting on the picture and the announcement of the release date, Co-executive Producer Maril Davis asked the fans to start the countdown. The TV series and the books by Diana Gabaldon, on which the show is based, have a highly passionate fan base, and the fans are eagerly waiting for the show’s return.

There will be 13 episodes in “Outlander” season 4, just as before. Details about the plot of the premiere episode should be announced in the coming months.
