Even though it feels like it’s been 200 years since we last checked in with Claire and Jamie, the “droughtlander” is finally over.
Sing us a song and give us a kilt because we’re going back through the standing stones.
Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan have been teasing the hell out of the new season all over social media, so here’s what we know:
without getting all spoilery, of course.
1. Actor Tobias Menzies will be back on the show. He played Claire’s original husband Frank Randall, who got the ol’ shaft from Claire after she met Jamie, but ultimately got her back after Claire left Jamie at the battle of Culloden and traveled through time. Yes, it’s complicated.
Menzies also played villain Jack Randall, Jamie’s nemesis. Both of the Randall’s are dead on the show but Starz did tease some flashback scenes featuring Frank.
- The posters for season 3 alone tell us Claire is going back to the past to find Jamie. And not a moment too soon.
Remember when we last left the couple, it was already 20 years after Claire left Jamie back in the 1700’s.
- Jamie and Claire will take to the sea after their big reunion.
Heughan posted a pic with his co-star after the show wrapped filming, and they’re in a weird looking pool used to shoot water scenes on film.
Outlander season 3 premieres tonight on Starz.
