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.
According to Diana Gabaldon, six of the upcoming Season 3 episodes are very close to the book.
Did Frank Become Unfaithful?Diana Gabaldon also said that the mystery on whether or not Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies) cheated on Claire (Caitriona Balfe) would finally be settled in the coming season. In the book, Gabaldon left this part ambiguous and let the readers decide whether or not they will hate Frank.
I personally don't think this is so mysterious but maybe that is just me.
This isn't the professional looking video from Starz but a dedicated fan who recorded from TV.
UPDATE: Now the video is TV Guide's upload which they likely got from Starz. Excitement is in the air.
We don't know the answer to this yet. Scottish actor James McAnerney posted the below tweet on his Twitter and it has made me curious who we think James will be playing in Season Three. Remember if you've not read the books this is very spoiler-y....
You can see some of the S3 scenes as you watch this video. Unfortunately they are all too brief.
Outlander fans eager for a reunion of soulmates Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) will get their wish—but they may have to wait awhile.
Claire’s story in Season 3 of the Starz drama (premiering later this year) begins in 1950s Boston when the time-traveling nurse resumes her married life with Frank (Tobias Menzies, below left, with Balfe) while mourning her 18th-century Highlander husband. “At this point in Claire’s life, Jamie’s dead. She’s trying to build a life after him, but once you’ve experienced a love so all-consuming, nothing can live up to it,” Balfe says. “Claire decides to focus on her career and tries to slot Frank in. That leads to disappointment and resentment. It’s a broken marriage.”
A bright spot is baby Brianna, whom Frank has agreed to raise as his own, even though Jamie is the child’s father. “Claire and Frank are coparenting,” Balfe says. “So it’s not miserable 24/7.”
In case you missed it, Outlander has received two new cast members in the forms of Gary Young and Charlie Hiett.
Young, a graduate of the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute in London and Toi Whakaari New Zealand Drama School, most recently appeared in the Netflix feature Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny and the Australian miniseries Secret City.
Mr. Willoughby is a man of Chinese decent with a deep knowledge of Eastern medicine. He is a talented poet in exile, with an even deeper love of women. Willoughby, a confidante of Jamie Fraser, speaks English well, but hides it when it suits him.
Hiett trained at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama has credits including the role of William Kent in The Suspicions of Mr Whincher on ITV, as well as Judge John Deed and M.I. High.
Leonard is the inexperienced, by-the-book de facto captain of the Artemis. Promoted quickly due to the untimely deaths of his commanding officers, Leonard takes his job very seriously, though it weighs heavily on his young shoulders. A third lieutenant, he never thought he would be the captain of a man-of-war ship. Above all, he wants to do what is right by the British Navy — whether or not it is right by his own personal morals.
“This is right after Claire gives birth to Brianna,” Balfe tells EW exclusively. “Those scenes are wonderful because it’s a new beginning, but it’s so fraught with so many other things. Obviously, this is Jamie’s child, but Claire’s in a new time and believes that Jamie is dead. So she’s really trying to look forward and give her daughter a new life, a stable family. I think it’s difficult for both of them. Frank is coming to terms with his wife. He didn’t quite know what had happened. She disappeared and she’s back. They’re tentatively trying to see if they can patch things up and allow themselves to embrace a future together. They really do try, but it’s not quite that easy.”
Some great leaked images from S3. This can only mean one thing... print shop scene. For the TV fans... just wait... you have no idea.
So Wee Jamie (or Young Jamie) is apparently all grown up, which makes sense if there is going to be a time jump.
On the left we have Aaron Wright who played a very young James Murray and on the left we have Conor McCarry who will be playing an older James Murray (Young Jamie).
Young Jamie is now the heir to Lallybroch after Jamie and Claire signed over the deed of Sasine to him before Culloden.
Conor has been in Anna Karenina and Battleship. You can check out his IMDB page and follow him on Twitter. Be kind.
