STARZ series Outlander based on the books by Diana Gabaldon and adapted by Ron. D Moore just released their first teaser for season 3, and it looks AMAZING:
Don’t let this short teaser dissuade you, Entertainment Weekly has announced THEY will be premiering the FULL trailer on their twitter!
The series follows Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) after her unfortunate time travel from the 1940s to the 1740s. While there, she marries Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), and together they try to change history. Well ok, they only *really* try once, but you get the idea.
Season 1 had the action mainly based in Scotland, Claire being the fish out of water now rolled in plaid and traipsing through the heather. Her knowledge of what was to come a cautious shadow over her every move. Although she did attempt to travel back to her own time, her love for Jamie kept her rooted to the past.
Season 2 began with the heartbreaking realization that yes, Claire finally *did* go back to her own time and her previous husband Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies). We meet her daughter Brianna (Sophie Skelton), a scarlet haired giant of a girl who doesn’t resemble Frank in the slightest. We also meet Roger MacKenzie (Richard Rankin), son of the Reverend Wakefield, friend to the Randalls. Through a series of historical discoveries, Claire reveals her story, her life with Jamie in France, the Jacobite uprising to return a Stewart to the throne, how she returned to her present time, and more importantly, who Brianna’s father really is.
Season 3 will follow book 3, “Voyager”. There will be travel, to Jamaica and other tropical locations. There will be violence, romance, death, and magic. More importantly, there will be more music by Bear McCreary.
These images had previously been released by STARZ and show such things as Jamie and Black Jack Randall on the battlefield of Culloden, Claire on a moonlit stroll through a field of sleeping Scots, a flash forward in time to Claire and Frank with a baby Brianna, and Claire and Frank together clapping at what I assume is Brianna’s graduation:
Outlander season 3 is set to hit STARZ sometime in the fall of 2017.
