“Outlander” fans, stay strong! Although there is no definitive end in sight for this interminable “Outlander” dry-spell (otherwise known as the “droughtlander”), as we get closer to 2017, the third season will eventually appear on the horizon. In an effort to quench your thirst, Gold Derby scoured social media and recent interviews with cast and crew for hints and clues about the eagerly anticipated new episodes, so take a look at what we know about “Outlander” Season 3 in our photo gallery above. Warning: spoilers!
Hearts were shattered when the enthralling and emotional second season finale “Dragonfly in Amber” aired months ago to rapturous praise by fans and critics alike. Not only were our leading lady Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and leading man Jamie (Sam Heughan) ripped apart by time and space, but when the credits rolled, we knew that the wait for Season 3 would be long and torturous.
Season 3 will be an adaptation of “Voyager,” the third novel in Diana Gabaldon’s fantasy time travel series of eight books in the “Outlander” series. Following the Jacobite Uprising that dominated most of the enthralling second season, we follow a Claire through the stones as she returns to her life in 1948 Scotland, now pregnant and back with husband Frank (Tobias Menzies).
Back in 18th century Scotland, Jamie has survived the bloody Battle of Culloden, but his heart is broken because he has lost his true love Claire. Years go by as Claire and Jamie live their lives apart in completely different worlds and time periods. The season will then follow their paths (with the usual intrigue, fantasy and romance) across the seas to the New World and beyond as their paths cross once again.
