The story of “Outlander” season 4 may have shifted focus to the American Colonies, but the setting is very much the same. Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) will still be surrounded by wilderness. There will also be a lot of horses, just like the way it was in Scotland.

The cast members have shared pictures of these horses on the production set. After spending hours with these animals, the actors have already developed a sort of friendship with them. Balfe, in particular, seems to be loving the work she has to do with her “co-stars.”

A recent video posted on "Outlander's" Instagram page (see below) shows a horse getting friendly with Balfe. The caption of the video jokes about the crew members feeling “jealous” of Balfe’s friendship.

Meanwhile, an interesting character from the previous season may be making a surprising comeback this year. Hannah James (Lady Geneva Dunsany) shared a picture of a carriage online (see below) with the caption “Virginia.”

Viewers who have read the books by Diana Gabaldon, on which the show is based, will remember that Virginia is a prominent location in the upcoming season. Will Lady Geneva return?

Meanwhile, César Domboy (Fergus) also shared a picture (see below) showing Lauren Lyle (Marsali) in full costume. The actor joked that Marsali had weird cravings for strawberries when the picture was taken. It is, however, a throwback to the previous season.

“Outlander” season 4 is set to premiere sometime later this year. The producers are yet to announce an exact release date.
