The following will contain NO spoilers for the upcoming season though it might have a few for Seasons 1-3 if you've not watched them.
Droughtlander seems dry and long even if it isn't quite as long as it has been in the past. So I thought I'd remind everyone what we do know about the upcoming season of Outlander.
When Will Season 4 Premiere?
There has been no premiere date set as of yet but considering production of Season 4 started directly after Season 3 (in some cases at the same time) then it is safe to say we aren't looking at an 18 month droughtlander. In fact, it is highly likely we are going to be looking at a fall release for Season 4 because show-runner Ron Moore told EW back in 2017 that they hoped to have new seasons every fall.
Two new cast members have been announced recently. Ainsley Jordan who will be playing the role of Judith Wylie, who will be a rival to Claire. Tim Downie will be portraying Governor William Tryon (it is spelled Tryon). Gov. Tryon is a historical figure you can read about at the North Carolina History Project or Wikipedia.
Each week, Oultander fans are on pins and needles waiting to see what is going on with time-crossed lovers Claire and Jamie. Showrunner Ron Moore often deviates from the books, with the cooperation of Diana Galbadon. If things are still on the same track though as the books, there is one important person we have not seen or heard about yet: Laogharie.
These Northern Inuit puppies will be playing the role of Rollo. Rollo is a wolf hybrid that becomes a beloved member of the Fraser clan through an encounter with Young Ian.
Talk about adorable! Sam and Rik really have competition for cutest now.
We don't know the answer to this yet. Scottish actor James McAnerney posted the below tweet on his Twitter and it has made me curious who we think James will be playing in Season Three. Remember if you've not read the books this is very spoiler-y....
Tobias Menzies, it seems, knows how to pick a project. Over the last few years, the RADA-trained British actor has appeared in a string of mammouth television hits, playing Catyln Stark's hapless brother Edmure Tully in Game of Thrones, an evil MI6 suit in The Night Manager, a tactless OBY-GYN doctor in Catastrophe, and two distinct characters—a ruthless, 18th-century army captain nicknamed "Black Jack" and his rather more docile 20th-century descendent, Frank—in Starz's fantasy series Outlander, for which he received a Golden Globe nomination. Then there are his film roles in both festival-friendly indies (such as Una, which premiered at TIFF last September) and blockbusters, like the recently-released Underworld: Blood Wars, in which he plays stringy-haired Lycan villain Marius.
"Underworld is, obviously, a huge genre piece with a very particular kind of aesthetic," Menzies explains over the phone from London. "In a way, [it requires] a very type of performance to make that material work," he continues. "They can be complicated things to rattle with, because there's obviously so much story to link in with prior films, and the pressure of the genre and the audience."
Next up, Menzies will star in the series The Terror about a Royal Naval expedition to the Arctic alongside Ciarán Hinds and Jared Harris. "We did five weeks before Christmas and I'm about to go back," he tells us. "It's an amazing story. I'm really, really excited for what we're making."
