Outlander wrapped its filming of Season Three today. Starz released this super cute picture of Sam and Cait on set looking like Jamie and Claire being adorable. Did casting do a fantastic job or what?!
It is looking more and more like a September air date is possible. Let's hope.
On Wednesday, Outlander took home trophies at the 43rd People's Choice Awards! The awards they won include:
Unfortunately (depending how you look at it), Sam and Cait couldn't be at the PCA's because they were on location filming Outlander (I'm not really upset by that). However, Sam and Cait have a message which Starz posted to Twitter:
One of the most pivotal scenes from Season 3 of Outlander has been shot — and Caitriona Balfe has something to say about it!
While walking the red carpet of the Golden Globes on Sunday, Balfe (blissfully) took a question from EW about the much-anticipated print shop scene that has been shot in Scotland. While loathe to give too much away, Balfe shared how she felt when shooting the moment when Claire and Jamie (Sam Heughan) reunite after 20 years of separation.
“I think it was written very beautifully,” Balfe teased to EW. “Matt B. Roberts wrote it. It has every emotion in it. The excitement, the tentativeness, the nerves, everything. I think it’s really beautiful.”
The beloved scene is from Voyager, the third book in Diana Gabaldon’s book series from which season 3 is based. After rebuilding her life with newborn Brianna in the 20th century, Claire returns through the stones to find Jamie — whom she previously believed had died at the Battle of Culloden — and reunites with him in the print shop where he works.
When reminded of how important the scene is to fans, Balfe admitted, “we better get it right.”

Outlander star Caitriona Balfe, who hails from Ireland, had a leg up on L.A.’s suddenly stormy weather.
“Yeah, I think the last three times I’ve been in L.A., it’s rained. But driving here, I know how to drive. I just don’t know about the other people on the road when it’s raining. They don’t know how to drive in the rain. But it’s good. It was beautiful. I was driving down Laurel Canyon yesterday, and to see the banks just be so green and so full of grass, it’s gorgeous,” she says.
Plus, she’s now a veteran of awards season, so she was way more at ease. “I’m enjoying it more. I know what to expect, and it’s going to be fun. I think last time ’round, I was slightly terrified. You’re just like, ah, what’s happening? But it’s great. It’s fun. It’s a good place to be,” she says.
Her major rule: “Comfortable shoes. If you’re going to go dancing, you’ve got to have comfortable shoes. That is key.”
It's finally back on for the time travel-afflicted lovers in Outlander season three. Viewers were devastated when Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) were left facing 20 years apart in the season two finale. But luckily, the couple are set to find each other again in a "very heartwarming, very tender" reunion, Balfe told ELLE.com at the pre-Golden Globes BAFTA tea in Los Angeles.
