Co-executive producers and writers Toni Graphia and Matthew B. Roberts teased details about the story in “Outlander’ season 4 in a new video released online. The TV series will continue to focus on the lives and challenges of Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe). The following article contains spoilers.

In the season 3 finale, Jamie and Claire reached the shores of America, with the next season focusing on the lives of the Frasers in this new country. In a new video (see below), Roberts pointed out how the two lovers never really had a home for themselves. Even though they tried to live in Lallybroch, they were constantly plagued by troubles.

Jamie gave Lallybroch away, and now for the first time, he and his wife will find a place in America that they can call home. The Frasers will finally try to build a more stable life in the New World. Thus the main focus of the plot next season will be the challenges they face in making their home.

Roberts explained that the one difference between “Outlander” and other stories out there is that the show is not a romance. The producer said that in a romance, the story ends at a particular point. The audience has no interest in seeing what happens the next day. He called the Starz TV series a love story, and the difference is that fans would like to see what happens next to Jamie and Claire, with the plot throwing new challenges at them and showing how they get out of trouble.

Graphia said that “Outlander” really “lives” in the “quiet moments.” The producer explained that in other shows such scenes are the first to get cut during post-production, but they can’t do that in the Starz series because it is these moments that really push the story forward. Fans can expect more tender or emotional moments between Jamie and Claire in season 4.
