Yesterday, Starz released a trailer for season three of their critically acclaimed time-hopping romance Outlander. The season, based on Voyager, the third book in Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series, will portray the protagonists Claire and Jamie’s quest to find one another, separated by two centuries. Though filmed in Cape Town, South Africa, season three’s trailer also promises a pretty rousing recreation of the 1746 Battle of Culloden. A press release for the season gives some things to watch out for:
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?
Season three will kick off in September. Watch the Outlander trailer above, and find some of Paste’s gushing praise of the series here.
