Press/Photos/Video: Outlander Season 3 Trailer Teases the Long-Awaited Print-Shop Scene

“A. Malcolm, Printer and Bookseller.” Has there ever been a sweeter sight, Sassenachs, than the sign hanging outside an Edinburgh print shop in Outlander‘s just-released Season 3 trailer? Och, we think no. Let’s all gaze upon it for a wee second, shall we?

If you’re someone who hasn’t read Diana Gabaldon’s novels and you don’t know why this is a big deal, no worries! Skip down to where we tell you it’s safe, because there are big spoilers ahead.

Spoiler alert! If you have read the books, you know that the Carfax Close shop is the site of Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire’s (Caitriona Balfe) reunion after a 20-year (by way of 200 years) absence. And while we don’t see Mr. Malcolm himself in the footage, everything else in the lead-up is there. Claire’s expectant/worried face! The sign! The bell! You can all but smell the ink and the alepot inside. Such sweet torment, no? (And if you missed the scene in the trailer, make sure to go back and watch the video all the way to the end. They’re sneaky, those Starz folks.)
OK IT’S SAFE NOW, non-book-readers. The trailer also features several other scenes based on events in Gabaldon’s Voyager. As previously announced, the drama will examine how Jamie and Claire’s lives changed drastically during the years between her return to her own time and the events of the Season 2 finale. So that means we see lots of Frank in times both happy (cuddling a baby Brianna) and strained (that shot of Claire fuming while he slinks upstairs looked rough), as well as footage of Jamie being arrested upon his return to Lallbroch and his subsequent adventures with Lord John Grey, played by new cast member David Berry.

We also witness Brianna and Roger helping Claire in her search (as well as smooching a bit), as well as Jamie making significant eye contact with a woman who is not his mo nighean donn. Two decades is a long time, people!

Outlander returns Sunday, Sept. 10, at 8/7c.

Press/Photos: Outlander: Here’s your first look at Lord John Grey & More

We have more pictures for you, Outlander nation!

In preparation for Outlander‘s much-anticipated presence at San Diego Comic-Con next Friday, we have obtained some exclusive first looks from season 3.

And look who it is! Lord John Grey and Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan)!

We also have a photo of Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and her 20th-century hubby, Frank (Tobias Menzies), gazing lovingly at a young Brianna.

So let’s recap: Expect a tale of two centuries when Outlander makes its much-anticipated, gawd-it’s-been-forever return to Starz in September. While Jamie (develops an unexpected rapport with his British captor John Grey (David Berry) after the Battle of Culloden in 1746, Claire has returned to 20th-century Boston to resume her marriage to Frank and raise young Brianna, her feisty daughter fathered by Jamie.

But now for the bad news: It’s going to be several episodes before we see the time-traveling nurse reunite with her hunky Highlander. When the lovebirds finally do hook up in a Scottish print shop — a scene fans of Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling novels have been breathlessly awaiting — come prepared with a cold compress.

“For Sam and I and all the writers, we felt that it was so important to make sure we had the tone right,” Balfe tells EW. “Claire’s had time to prepare herself for what this might be and to play various scenarios through her mind. But for Jamie, this person just landed in his life again and there was no warning. So you’ve got two people trying to figure out how to go about this.”

Press/Video: Finally, We Have a Premiere Date for Outlander Season 3

Get the inside info about the new episodes. Plus, an exclusive video of a very anguished Jamie and Claire.

Finally, the Outlander news you’ve been waiting for: We’re thrilled to announce that Season 3 of the STARZ time-travel romance will return Sunday, September 10. Yes, that’s right—you can now mark the end of Droughtlander in your calendar.

Thirteen new episodes devoted to Claire and Jamie will air this fall, and they’ll be based on Voyager, the third of Diana Gabaldon’s eight Outlander books.

Here’s the official season three poster, showing Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) on opposite sides of the standing stone—and in totally different centuries. Claire’s in the 1960s, having returned to her original life, and husband Frank (Tobias Menzies), while Jamie’s in the 1700s. No, you’re crying.

And here’s an exclusive live-action version of the poster, featuring a very anguished Claire and Jamie:

“You can come back to your life,” Claire muses in voiceover, “but it’s never the same. Maybe it’s enough to have gone once. How many people can say they had that?”

As for what we can expect, the new season will pick up right after Claire returns to her old life, pregnant with Jamie’s child. As for Jamie, we’ll see him at the historic battle of Culloden, fighting not only Black Jack Randall but his grief at losing Claire. The battle itself will be epic, showrunner Ronald D. Moore told ELLE.com: “I’m very excited about finally delivering Culloden to the audience after having talked about this pivotal event for so long.”

Moore also says the two are building their lives again independently: “We’re going to reset the story and the characters at the start of the season, giving the audience a window into what happened to Jamie at the battle of Culloden, as well as what happened to Claire in the twentieth century.”

What should fans be most excited about, according to Moore? “Getting to see the ways in which Jamie and Claire grew and changed over the course of their 20-year separation is a very exciting prospect.” And with Scotland, Cape Town, and even an ocean voyage to the New World (which Moore calls “a big turning point in the saga”) on the horizon, the very setting of this epic romance will change.

Of course, a reunion is definitely on the cards for our favorite time-defying lovers, though it might take a while. The only question is whether they’ll still feel the same way after so long apart. But true love never dies, right?

Press: Outlander: EW will release the drama’s next cover in September

In anticipation of the third season debut of Outlander, EW will release its third cover devoted to the Starz drama in September. Besides offering an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at production that took place in South Africa earlier this year, we’ll release a new set of portraits that are sure to make your pulses race.

That’s not all EW has planned in preparation for the third season based on Voyager, the third book in author Diana Gabaldon’s bestselling Outlander series. Richard Rankin, who plays Roger Wakefield in the series, will follow in Sam Heughan’s footsteps by participating in the magazine’s annual Brave New Warriors panel July 21 at Comic-Con International in San Diego. And come September, Amy Wilkinson and yours truly will resume our weekly Outlander Live! show on EW Radio, SiriusXM 105.

The new season picks up right after Claire (Caitriona Balfe) travels through the stones to return to her life in 1948, where she gives birth to Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) daughter Brianna and resumes her marriage to her first husband, Frank (Tobias Menzies). Back 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.

Press/Video: First Outlander Season 3 Trailer Reveals Claire and Jamie’s Painful Separation

As any Outlander fan will tell you, the love story of Claire and Jamie Fraser has always been a bit star-crossed. That’s what happens when you mix romance and time travel. But Season 3 promises the rockiest road yet for the Frasers as the couple are ripped apart for what looks like a long time.

Calling in from the set in Scotland late last year, Jamie actor Sam Heughan told Vanity Fair that being apart from Balfe for part (we won’t say how long) of Season 3 was like “having a death in the family. Well, I don’t know. I mean, it’s just like a different show. It’s hard to separate yourself from the character. It’s always hard when we’re apart, actually, because she’s a great person, great to come to work with, and a very good actress. But I think it all adds to the reunion—if there’s a reunion, or when there’s a reunion—well, you know there’s one in the books. It should be very special.” Caitriona Balfe jokingly responded, “Och! He’s already killed me in his mind. Gone. Too sad.”

According to the official Starz description:

In Season Three of Outlander, the story picks up right after Claire travels through the stones to return to her life in 1948. Now pregnant, she struggles with the fallout of her sudden reappearance and its effect on her marriage to her first husband, Frank. 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?

If Claire has to be separated from her beloved Jamie, at least she can console herself with the fabulous fahsion of the 1960s. (Listen! I’m just trying to find a silver lining here.) “Probably, to the disappointment of all the costume fans, I did not miss that corset or bum roll for one second,” Balfe says of her more modern Season 3 wardrobe. “Being able to do 40s, 50s, and 60s—especially the 60s—it was just such fun. [Costume designer] Terry [Dresbach] had in racks and racks of clothing. She made some pieces in-house and other pieces are vintage finds that she had. I love what each era tells you about the women of the time—it’s just such an interesting barometer. Some of the 60s pieces are so cool and beautiful that I asked her to make me doubles of some things.”

The third season of Outlander—which will include 13 episodes based upon Voyager, the third of eight books in Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling series—will premiere in September. Fans eager to get an early taste can also catch the Outlander panel at San Diego Comic Con this summer.

Press: Caitriona Balfe (‘Outlander’) reveals love of wine, whiskey, Blondie & South Africa when answering fan questions

“Sunshine, vineyards. It’s beautiful. I was lucky enough to go there about 10 years ago, and Cape Town is so stunning. Just being there will be amazing,” says “Outlander” star Caitriona Balfe about the show’s upcoming shoot in South Africa during a recent interview with The Wrap when she answered “Wrapid Fire” fan questions. Watch below.

Production for “Outlander” is usually based on Scotland, but for the final episodes of its third season it’s moving to the other side of the globe to shoot scenes on the high seas in South Africa. But fans will have to wait awhile for the new episodes to premiere. The time-travel romance, which concluded its second season in July 2016, doesn’t return to Starz until September.

In the meantime, fans can learn even more about Balfe in her video Q&A. She reveals her love of whiskey and wine, that her favorite film is “Full Metal Jacket” by Stanley Kubrick, and that her go to karaoke songs are by Blondie. And her favorite word? “The one I use the most is probably ‘fuck,’ but ‘juxtoposition’ is quite nice.”

Press/Video: ‘Outlander’ Star Caitriona Balfe Adorably Apologizes for ‘Longer’ Season 3 Hiatus, Teases ‘Great Reunion’ Ahead!

It’s time for a Droughtlander update!

As all Outlander fans should know by now, season three of our beloved time-traveling drama will not be premiering on Starz until September, which means we still have at least seven more months until we reunite with our favorite Frasers.

To help cope with this prolonged hiatus, we at ET have already released a special interview with stars Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe from our season three set visit in Scotland, and we have plenty of more exclusive behind-the-scenes goodies that we’re going to release over these next few months.

In the meantime, ET caught up with Balfe, who was being honored at the 2017 Oscar Wilde Awards on Thursday night, to get her thoughts on Outlander’s extended on-screen absence and some inside scoop on what’s ahead!

“Yeah, [the Droughtlander] is a little longer than I think people thought. Sorry!” Balfe said apologetically to ET’s Ashley Crossan.

When asked for a tease to hold fans over until September, the 37-year-old actress was quick to point out that ET is going to have plenty of special moments to share. “Oh, I think [ET reporter] Leanne [Aguilera] might have some things up her sleeve from when she came to visit us,” she said with a coy smile.

“I think this season is going to be really interesting and it’s going to be so new again,” Balfe continued. “I mean, I think we do that every season; we sort of flip it on its head. Last season, we went to Paris and it was something totally different. This season, we start off with a little bit of a separate storyline, which is really fun for us. We’re hoping the fans will be as happy.”

For those fans who have not read Diana Gabaldon’s third book in the Outlander series, Voyager, you should be warned that our season three journey begins with Claire and Jamie living in two completely different timelines. Despite Balfe and Heughan’s on-screen separation, Balfe is confident that Jamie and Claire’s reunion in the print shop and their adventures abroad will be worth the wait.

“We’ve got the great reunion happening and then we go to South Africa — well, in the story it’s Jamaica — but there’s old ships involved and it’s just a constantly evolving, exciting adventure.”

Balfe confessed that she departs for filming in Cape Town, South Africa, next week and that she and the rest of the Outlander production team will be there for “a couple of months” to finish up shooting.

“in my head, I’m going on a three-month holiday in the sun, but it’ll be work every day,” she shared. “But it’ll be great. It’ll be really exciting. I’ve read the scripts, the scripts are really great, so I’m really looking forward to that.”

When we jokingly asked Balfe to spill absolutely everything that happens in those highly confidential season three scripts, her response was equally cheeky. “You know, I was going to email them to you, and then do you want to just copy them and put them online? That’d be great. No problem!” she said.

We’re still waiting for that email, Caitriona!
