Season 4 was the fourth season of Canadian TV series Road to Avonlea (1990–1996). It premiered with "Tug of War" on January 17, 1993, and ended with "Hearth and Home" on April 11, 1993.


Sara and her cousins continue to wreak havoc and land in trouble, much to the adults’ dismay and disapproval.

Olivia goes into labor and nearly loses her baby. Hetty takes a sabbatical from teaching and begins to write pulp romance novels. Clive Pettibone replaces Hetty as school teacher, but his militant methods of teaching becomes intolerable for the schoolboard committee. Gus Pike begins a heated rivalry with Arthur Pettibone over the right to court Felicity. An American Industrialist plans to purchase Avonlea and convert it into a town of the future. Hetty and Jasper arrange a motion picture presentation to show the town the importance of their community and to reject the proposed offer.

In addition to the light-hearted and fun-filled stories that dominated the first three seasons of the series, each of these episodes is a textured and compelling exploration of life in the mythical farming village of Avonlea.
