“Outlander” fans are used to exploring new worlds on the show, and season 4 won’t be any different. Speaking at the Irish Film and Television Academy’s Film and Drama Awards, cast member Caitriona Balfe (Claire) revealed that there are also plenty of new things to discover this year.

A video from the red carpet event posted on Twitter shows Balfe saying there is a bit of “comfortability” when it comes to exploring new worlds each season. Apart from locations, there will also be a new set of characters that viewers get to meet. Joining the cast this year is “Orphan Black” star Maria Doyle Kennedy, who will be playing the role of Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) strong-willed aunt Jocasta.

Balfe said that Kennedy is “a great addition to the show.” The actress had many nice things to say about the newcomer, saying that she is “wonderful,” “bloody talented” and “so amazing.”

Half of the filming for next season has already been completed, Balfe confirmed. There will also be a total of 13 episodes this year, so filming for six or seven episodes still remains. Balfe said it’s “really nice” to be working on the same show for the fourth year.

“Outlander” season 4 is set to premiere sometime later this year. The producers are yet to announce an exact release date. The announcement may come right after filming wraps.
