Just like walking through the stones, fans went back in time by stepping into the Fraser’s Ridge Outlander cabin outside the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in NYC at New York Comic-Con 2018. STARZ brought to life historic details from colonial America by working with local artisans and brands to create an authentic three-sided version of Jamie and Claire Fraser’s cabin from the upcoming season of Outlander (and also as described in Diana Gabaldon‘s novel, Drums of Autumn).
Clan Fraser graced the stage at Madison Square Garden for the NYCC Outlander season 4 panel. Joining stars Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan, Sophie Skelton, and Richard Rankin were executive producers Ronald D. Moore and Maril Davis, as well as Outlander author Diana Gabaldon. The cast and creators shared insights and answered questions with regards to the many changes and challenges that the protagonists will face this new season in a brand new land (and time period for some). But before the panel began, fans were treated to the season premiere episode! Check out some panel highlights here below.
Although season 4 of Outlander doesn’t come out until November, “Droughtlander” is ending for a number of lucky fans. It’s been announced that the cast of the popular Starz series will make their New York Comic-Con debut this October.
The official Outlander Twitter account tweeted that stars Caitriona Balfe (Claire Randall), Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser), Sophie Skelton (Brianna Randall), and Richard Rankin (Roger Wakefield) will all be in attendance with “more details to come.”

Warning! Spoilers below for Sunday night’s episode of Outlander!
Last week on Outlander, Roger (Richard Rankin) and Brianna (Sophie Skelton) grew closer as the trail to Jamie grew hotter then hit a dead end. Claire (Caitriona Balfe) gave up and went back to Boston, a sad Brianna in tow. In the past, Jamie went to work for the Dunsany family where the youngest daughter blackmailed him into taking her virginity before she married an old man. It was eventually found out and Jamie (Sam Heughan) saved the baby, his baby, from being killed by the crazed old man. He stayed on to be near the boy, leaving only when the resemblance could no longer be hidden. He asked Lord John Grey (David Berry) to take care of his boy, who considered it an honor, and went back home to Lallybroch.
