'Outlander': The Frasers are stronger than ever but there's another love story to expect in season 4 premiere this Sunday
The New World is assuring enough to Claire and Jamie Fraser but there's another refreshing love story waiting to be told this coming season
Season four of 'Outlander' premieres this Sunday and as we know Claire and Jamie Fraser arrived in the American colonies on a near-deadly shipwreck, and their life in the New World is expected to be smooth sailing as the new season unfurls.
The Frasers don't have enough material resources and are not separated by 200 years, so the stars of the show Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan assure fans that life is good in their recent interview.
"As the season starts, it takes them a while to figure out, what, exactly their future is going to look like," Balfe says in the interview, but adds that there's a lot of options to choose from. The first thing they have to do is decide where to live. The Frasers are torn between the option of Scotland and America. Scotland is Jamie's homeland while Claire has spent 20 years living in America's future that she is attached to the land and aware of its potential.
The Starz's series based on the best-selling books by Diana Gabaldon, has also used Gabaldon’s 'Drums of Autumn', as the source material for season four. In the book, Claire and Jamie’s daughter, Brianna (played by Sophie Skelton), and her love interest Roger (played by Richard Rankin) are more heavily involved in the story than in the novel series' first three installments.
Executive producer Matthew B. Roberts says that the Starz’s adaptation will not be very different in the same interview; "Jamie and Claire will always be the centerpiece of 'Outlander', but it’s nice that we can branch off and tell other stories." He adds: "Another nice thing about it is that all the other characters kind of flow through Jamie and Claire, always… Every story that affects, say, Bree and Roger, also in a way affects Jamie and Claire."
The shooting for episode one was done in November when the Scottish temperature was freezing cold. Not sure if there are enough steamy scenes but the actors say they tried their best to be as sexy as possible.
