The Outlander crew was given permission to close off Market Park in Crieff for filming. Many will remember that gardens at Drummond Castle, near Crieff, stood in for Versailles in season two. So the crew is in the area again.
According to Cinema Blend the next episode of Outlander 'A. Malcolm' will run about 74 minutes which means it is approximately 14 minutes longer than episode 304 'Of Lost Things' which was nearly 60 minutes long. I can't say I can complain about an episode that is 14 minutes longer than expected.
Forensic scientists are exhuming the contents of a coffin said to contain the remains of Simon Fraser, the 11th Lord Lovat.
Fraser, nicknamed the Old Fox, is known today as Jamie Fraser's grandfather in the Outlander TV and book series.
Dame Sue Black is to study the remains in a bid to solve the 250-year-old mystery about the final resting place of a Highlands clan chief.
Another actor has announced that he’ll be joining the cast of the DC Extended Universe’s underwater adventure movie Aquaman.
Graham McTavish announced his involvement in the Aquaman movie yesterday on Twitter. The actor stated that his role must remain a secret for now.
Outlander is adding some series players to their Season 4 casting.
Maria Doyle Kennedy has been cast as Jocasta Cameron, Jamie's strong-willed aunt. You may know Doyle Kennedy from her rolls in Orphan Black, Downton Abbey, Dexter, Albert Nobbs, The Tudors, Sing Street or The Conjuring 2. I personally love Downton Abbey but if you want to see Doyle Kennedy shine beyond belief watch the now completed Orphan Black! She's fantastic.
Ed Speelers has been cast as Stephen Bonnet, a pirate and smuggler. Pssst. He's awful. Bonnet not Speelers. You may remember Speelers from Downton Abby, Howl, Wolf Hall, Alice Through the Looking Glass or Eragon.
Season four began filming in Scotland this week. The new season will be 13 episodes long and is based on Diana Gabaldon's book Drums of Autumn which is based on the fourth book in the Outlander series.

Great news, we've got some title, air date and production information for you.
Episode 301: The Battle Joined (September 10, 2017) written by Ronald D. Moore and direced by Brendan Maher.
“After living through the Battle of Culloden, Jamie finds himself at the mercy of unforgiving British victors, until a connection from his past provides his only hope of survival. Meanwhile, a pregnant Claire attempts to adjust to life in the modern world of 1940s Boston – and life with Frank.”
Canadians you may or may not have heard that Outlander is moving from Showcase which aired Season 1 & 2 of Outlander. The W Network will be airing Outlander the same day it airs in the states just an hour off. Check your local listings to make sure you have the station.
Also, this will contain ads so a 50 minute episode will likely air as a 90 minute block.
For everyone out there wondering if there would be a UK premiere event for Outlander season 3 much like there is in New York and Los Angeles, great news! You’re going to have a chance to check out the show early, provided of course that you are in the right place at the right time.
The fine folks over at the Radio Times are going to be offering up two screenings next week leading up to the show’s September 11 premiere on Amazon Prime Video (it airs here in America on Starz September 10). There are events in both London and Glasgow happening at 6:00 p.m. local time on Thursday, September 7. If you’re interested in attending, the link here gives you a little bit more information regarding how to do that.
*Check local listings for show times. Starz apps making episodes available at 12am ET.
