If you like what you see from Marsali and Fergus in the exclusive Outlander clip above from this Sunday’s episode, then you should be pleased to read this: Lauren Lyle and Cesar Domboy will return in season 4 to reprise those roles.
While exclusively touring the drama’s Scotland set last month during filming of the new season, EW also learned that Sophie Skelton (Brianna) and Richard Rankin (Roger) — no surprise — will join Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan when the drama comes back in late 2018. And what about Young Ian, played by John Bell? We’ll have to wait until the season 3 finale to see if Claire and Jamie find him in Jamaica after smugglers kidnapped him at the end of episode 8.
The theme of the new season, which will be based on Diana Gabaldon’s fourth book, Drums of Autumn, is “home.”
“Over the last three seasons, Jamie and Claire didn’t know where they are going to live,” executive producer Matthew B. Roberts tells EW exclusively. “They never plant their feet. Now they’re getting to that place that they can call home. But the meaning of home is different for people. That’s what we will dig into in season 4.”
Outlander season 3 is currently airing Sundays at 8 p.m. on Starz.
