STARZ will release the first teaser trailer Outlander Season 3 this Sunday, ahead of the The White Princess premiere. Get a sneak peek!
Hi there Sassenachs! We have some really good news to share… just this morning STARZ announced that they will release the first teaser trailer Outlander Season 3 this Sunday, April 16, ahead of the premiere of their new limited series The White Princess (airing 8:00pm ET|PT)!
As a sneak peek, STARZ shared two new images from the trailer (below): the first features Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Frank (Tobias Menzies) in the 1960s, while the second photo still is of Jamie (Sam Heughan) in the 1700s.
You’ll recall that, at the end of Season 2 (“Dragonfly in Amber“), Brianna and Roger tell Claire that Jamie survives the Battle of Culloden. At that point, Claire is determined to return to him.
If you’ve read Voyager, you know that (at first) the book alternates between Claire, Bree, and Roger in the 1960s trying to figure out how to travel through the stones and flashbacks which show us Claire and Frank’s life in Boston (after her return from the 1740s). Flashbacks also allow us to see how Jamie spends the 20 years following Culloden.
Back in October, Ron Moore confirmed that Season 3 will begin with the Battle of Culloden and another epic face-off between Jamie and Black Jack Randall. In the aftermath, he faces a lot of hardship including living in seclusion for a time (hiding from English authorities), Ardsmuir Prison, as well as serving as an indentured servant for an English aristocratic family.
Meanwhile, in the 1960s, though Claire and Frank have agreed to raise Brianna together, they really struggle in their marriage.
Both situations with Jamie and Claire/Frank are difficult to read about, and a lot of stuff I don’t like happens… *SIGH* we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it!
In any event, I was already looking forward to The White Princess and now I’m even more excited!
Remember, Outlander Season 3 premieres in September 2017 and will include 13 episodes. Production and filming is ongoing in Cape Town, South Africa. (P.S. Have you seen the video below of Cait, Sam, and Diana Gabaldon from South Africa? So ADORBS!)
About Outlander Season 3
The story picks up right after Claire (Caitriona Balfe) travels through the stones to return to her life in 1948. Now pregnant with Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) child, she struggles with the fallout of her sudden reappearance and its effect on her marriage to her first husband, Frank (Tobias Menzies). Meanwhile, in the 18th century, Jamie suffers from the aftermath of his doomed last stand at the historic battle of Culloden, as well as the loss of Claire. As the years pass, Jamie and Claire attempt to make a life apart from one another, each haunted by the memory of their lost love. The budding possibility that Claire can return to Jamie in the past breathes new hope into Claire’s heart… as well as new doubt. Separated by continents and centuries, Claire and Jamie must find their way back to each other. As always, adversity, mystery, and adventure await them on the path to reunion. And the question remains: When they find each other, will they be the same people who parted at the standing stones, all those years ago?
