After the intense season 3 finale of The Outpost  on The CW, fans were left with a lot of questions. The most important of which is: when will the show finally return for more episodes? And we finally have that answer.

Following the adventures of Talon, thought to be the last of a race called Blackbloods, and her friends Garret, Janzo, and Gwynn The Outpost is an underrated gem for fantasy fans. If you haven’t watched it yet, you really should give it a chance. Please. Because I need this show to have more seasons.

The Outpost has action, romance, friendship, and magic. Basically everything you could ask for in a show. So when does it return and what do you need to know before season 4? We have the answers.

When does The Outpost season 4 premiere?

After a long wait, the season 4 (or 3B is what The CW is referring to it as) premiere isn’t far off now! The show will return for 13 new episodes on July 15, at 9pm EST on The CW.

The Outpost season 4 cast

Most of the main cast are expected to return, including Jessica Green as Talon, Jake Stormoen as Garret Spears, and Anand Desai-Barochia as Janzo. Anand will also be taking on an additional role  as he was promoted to associate producer for the fourth season as reported by Deadline.

The Outpost season 4 synopsis

When we left our heroes they had taken some major losses. Tobin Aegisford and Gwynn both sacrificed their lives, which was a devastating blow. We also met Talon’s long lost father, whom she then lost again. There was also the introduction of new characters like Wren, the daughter of Yavalla and Janzo’s new love, and Falista who was the former love of Tobin Aegisford.

The heroes finally managed to defeat Yavalla and her mind control, thanks to Gwynn’s sacrifice, but in doing so they may have released old gods that are more powerful than they know. With Talon reluctantly taking up the position as the leader of The Outpost, our heroes are in for even more challenges than before.

Per The CW‘s site, the official synopsis for the upcoming episodes goes as follows:

"After Gwynn (Imogen Waterhouse) sacrificed herself to destroy Yavalla, the Outpost needs a new ruler. But while Talon (Jessica Green) and Garret (Jake Stormoen) try to establish new leadership, a sinister threat awakens, revealing the true origin of the mysterious kinjes."

That certainly sounds ominous and doesn’t bode well for our characters. Though I am very glad we’re going to be learning more about the kinjes because there’s still so much we don’t know, and as a big fantasy nerd I love learning more about the mythology of the world.

The Outpost season 4 questions

Will Talon become Queen? Will Gwynn return or is she really gone? How will Falista cope with Tobin’s loss? Can Talon & Garret and Janzo & Wren maintain their relationships and still survive? Are Kinjes even more dangerous than we know? Who are these old gods that have awoken? With so many questions remaining, it’s a good thing that new episodes are coming soon!
