Starz surprised fans with the official teaser trailer for the upcoming fourth season of “Outlander.”
The crowd of eager fans was at the IFC Center in New York for a screening of “The Spy Who Dumped Me.” That may seem like a strange choice for unveiling the trailer for an unrelated project, but it turns out Sam Heughan, who stars in both, was on hand for a Q&A and had the privilege of making the announcement.
Starz also streamed the trailer release on their Facebook page.
From the press release by Starz:
The fourth season of “Outlander” will include 13 episodes based upon “Drums of Autumn,” the fourth of the eight books in Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling “Outlander” series. The upcoming season continues the romantic adventures of Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie Fraser (Heughan) in America and will premiere this November 2018 on Starz. Additionally, the series has been renewed for two more seasons, taking it through season six.
The “Outlander” television series, executive produced by Ronald D. Moore, Maril Davis, Toni Graphia, Matthew B. Roberts and Andy Harries, is inspired by Diana Gabaldon’s eight-book “Outlander” series that has sold an estimated 30 million copies worldwide with all the books having graced the New York Times best-sellers list. The “Outlander” television series has itself become a worldwide success with audiences, spanning the genres of history, science fiction, romance and adventure in one amazing tale.
Season 4 returns exclusively to Starz this November.
