Another Droughtlander is about to come to an end. Starz has set Sunday, September 10 at 8 p.m. ET as the premiere date for Season 3 of OUTLANDER, the premium cable network announced Tuesday.
The network also released the first poster for the new season, illustrating the obstacle that still stands between Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) as they left off Season 2 in different time periods.
The third season of Outlander picks up right after Claire travels through the stones to return to her life in 1948. Now pregnant with Jamie’s 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?
The third season of Outlander is based on Voyager, the third book in Diana Gabaldon’s bestselling novel series. Ronald D. Moore is the executive producer and showrunner. Maril Davis, Matthew B. Roberts, Toni Graphia, Anne Kenney and Andy Harries also serve as executive producers on Outlander, which is produced by Tall Ship Productions, Story Mining & Supply Company and Left Bank Pictures in association with Sony Pictures Television.
