Outlander Season 3 will go on a sea voyage in the 18th century. Jamie and his time-travelling wife, Claire, will go on a long journey out in the ocean to 18th century Caribbean. Season 2 is currently airing, but isn?t this whole new narrative exciting?
It has been previously revealed that the third installment will be based on the third book by Diana Gabaldon titled Voyager, which explains the change in setting for the next season. According to a report by Morning Ledger, the plot will see Jamie and Claire in the 1700s wherein they meet in Edinburgh and go on a voyage to Jamaica. Showrunner Ronald D. Moore spoke up at a Comic-con, ?I can?t wait to get out to sea. That?s what [I like], doing the tall ship section? I want to do the whole sea chase; that whole section is really going to be fun. I?m sure it will be really hard and I?ll regret it as soon as I start doing it, but I?m looking forward to it.?
Moore also answered some fan queries about Season 3 on Twitter last Sunday. Some of which were questions on production schedule/location and plot. According to the showrunner, filming will start late August or early September and location will still be in Scotland and the crew are already looking for locations that have resemblance to Jamaica and Hispaniola.
Meanwhile, there?s more exciting news as Outlander was renewed for both seasons 3 and 4. TV Guide reports a statement from Starz CEO Chris Albrecht, ?Outlander is like nothing seen before on television. From its depiction of a truly powerful female lead character, to the devastating decimation of the Highlander way of life, to what is a rarely seen genuine and timeless love story, it is a show that not only transports the viewer, but inspires the passion and admiration of its fans.?
While Season 3 will cover Voyager, Season 4 will cover Drums of Autumn from Diana Gabaldon?s series of novels.
Are you excited for the upcoming seasons?
