Outlander Season 4 is going to be the darkest season yet, but it could also be the dullest for some. Will it bore some of the fans?
There’s a worry that Outlander Season 4 is going to be the dullest season of the series so far. While it’s going to be dark, it’s also going to focus more Claire and Jamie settling down. But will this type of storyline bore the fans, especially those who haven’t read the books?
Showrunner Matt B. Roberts shared that the theme for the season is “home.” After years of moving from place to place, the Frasers will finally find a place to call their own. But it’s more than just finding a place. This is the chance to explore the meaning of home–is it one place or can you find “home” depending on the people you’re around.

There’s a darkness to Outlander Season 4
Those who have read the books know that “Drums of Autumn” is not a boring book. It’s full of adventure and intense moments, just not in the way the books had been before.

Meanwhile, it’s worth remembering they’re in the Colonies. Outlander tells the full truth about the Colonies: the good and the bad.

Then there’s Brianna and Roger and the steps they’ll take in their relationship.
For those who constantly need action in every episode, this could be the dullest. But there’s a story to tell. This is more than just the Frasers on the run from a dastardly villain and running into a darker and more dangerous foe. The story is about life together, through the trials and tribulations life throws their way.
