Main Stars Sam Heughan & Catriona Balfe Caught Spending Time

The upcoming season 3 of "Outlander" will feature the reunion of Jamie Fraser and his wife Claire Fraser after 20 years.

As most fans can recall, every new season of "Outlander" usually premieres in April, but if the cast and crew will finish production by May, this means that fans and viewers will have to wait until June or July for new episodes.

The cast and crew of "Outlander" are now filming the third season of the Starz series in Scotland, and in a recent interview, Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser) gave a production update, saying that they have finished filming the first two episodes of the season.

"Outlander" season 3 premieres in 2017 on Starz.

"We're doing 11 months", he said.

The delay in the airing date of "Outlander" Season 3 has something to do with the ton of editing and post-production work needed to be done after filming is done. It looks like South Africa will stand in for Jamaica, which is where Claire and Jamie end up when in the third instalment of Gabaldon's book. According to Cinema Blend, Sam Heughan shared during an interview that filming for the new season will finish around May 2017.

TV Line reported that the English actor Johnson will play the role of Joe Abernathy.

"Young Ian Murray is a tall, gangly Scottish lad with a heart of gold, a stubborn streak and a penchant for getting into trouble". He will start off as Claire's friend in medical school who also happens to be a doctor in training. Their time difference is unlike any long distance relationship as they are separated by centuries - different eras.

"Outlander" is a British-American television drama series based on Diana Gabaldon novel series under the same name.

"Bursting with charm, he's more like his adventurous, fierce uncle Jamie Fraser than his farmer father Ian - but when we meet him, he is still a very gawky boy", as described by Starz "However, he keeps trying to prove that he is a man and we will see him grow into quite a formidable one as the series evolves".

"Outlander" season 3 is said to premiere in 2017.
