“Outlander” Season 3 will be an “adventure” on high seas, with pirates and more. Cast members Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe, and Executive Producer Ronald D. Moore teased what to expect next on the show, in recent interviews.
After seeing an older Claire (Caitriona Balfe) in the finale episode of the second season, the viewers will now get to see an older Jamie (Sam Heughan). In an interview with Variety, Heughan said that TV series will now focus on showing who his character is without his wife and how he manages to live on after losing the love of his life.
When the fans next see Jamie and Claire, they will both be older, Heughan teased. The actor said that the TV series will now explore who this older Jamie is. The character is expected to have changed both physically and mentally over the years.
Heughan said that the “joy” of the TV series is that it’s “never the same thing” and that it’s “constantly moving.” He teased that “Outlander” Season 3 is going to be “quite an adventure.”
The adventure Heughan is referring to will be on high seas. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Producer Moore revealed that the next season will start in Scotland, but later it will be a “sea voyage.”
“There are pirates. It’s in Jamaica. It’s in the New World,” Moore teased.
The TV series will still be mostly filmed in Scotland, which Moore described as their “home base.” They are, however, looking for options to film scenes involving ships, beaches and jungles of the Caribbean.
The water shoots of “Outlander” Season 3 will be “challenging,” according to Moore. There will be “logistical and technical difficulties involved.” However, the producer hopes to find one ideal location where the cast and crew can travel to and film all the relevant scenes, making it easier for the production.
