For a long time, fans of the “Outlander” series have been concerned about their favourite show not getting enough nominations and awards. Will 2018 be the turning point?

The cast and crew of the Starz series are currently busy filming the fourth season in Scotland. The plot will focus on the life of Jamie and Claire in the American colonies, where they will build a new home and settle down.

Meanwhile, Production Designer Jon Gary Steele teased new behind-the-scenes pictures of “Outlander” (see below). The pictures are from the Lallybroch set of the castle that was once the home of Jamie and Claire. Viewers may return to this estate when they see Jenny Fraser (Laura Donnelly) and Ian Murray (Steven Cree).
