It appears that the "Outlander" fans will have to wait at least a few more months before seeing Claire Randall once again as Starz has announced on February 15 that it will release the 13-episode third season of the historical time travel drama in September. The highly anticipated return of the Starz show has been given a tentative air date, which could be sometime in August.
September will be the latest point in the year that "Outlander" has premiered.
The attractive picture below was sacked shared on Twitter by executive producer Matthew B. Roberts, and that gives you a slight sense of the work that's being done in South Africa to prepare the ships and the sets for an epic journey for Jamie and Claire on the upcoming third season. However, production has been pushed back, so "Outlander" Season 3 is expected to wrap by June.
"Outlander" will once again participate in San Diego Comic Con this summer.
Based on Diana Gabaldon's "Voyager", the 13-episode season will pick up with Claire's (Caitriona Balfe) struggles after returning to 1948. To make things more complicated, Claire is pregnant with the child of Sam Heughan's Jamie, and she has to tell her husband, Tobias Menzies' Frank. The latter tries to pick up the broken pieces following the terrible Battle of Culloden and Claire's leaving in 18th century as he had to force her to leave Scotland. In the 18th century, Jamie attempt to rebuild his life after the loss of Claire and the tragic Battle of Culloden. The budding possibility that Claire can return to Jamie in the past breathes new hope into Claire's heart as well as new doubt. As always, adversity, mystery and adventure await them on the path to reunion.
Additions to the cast include Lauren Lyle as Laoghaire's daughter, Marsali; C?sar Domboy as the adult Fergus; Gary Young as Mr. Willoughby; Charlie Hiett as Capt. Thomas Leonard; Wil Johnson as Claire's friend Joe Abernathy; and John Bell as Jamie and Claire's nephew Young Ian.
According to a report, President of Programming at Starz Carmi Zlotnik said that the novel is huge and that they owe fans the best show possible. The scale of this book is vast, and we owe the fans the very best show.
