What are you looking forward to see in "Outlander" Season 3? There were several huge ships fashioned after the old times. It was shot in Scotland and South Africa. "Outlander" executive producer Maril Davis announced the last day of shooting in Scotland on February 7 via Twitter and thanked the crew for their hard work.
And while Claire and Frank try to rebuild their relationship, this season will also show how Claire's affair with/marriage to Jamie in a far-away time and place will wreak havoc on her modern day marriage to Frank.
Don't tell Frank, but his "broken marriage" with Claire is actually completely necessary for her future with Jamie. Unfortunately for them, Mackenzie Mauzy came into the picture and her existence in Sam Heughan's life threatens the "Outlander" Season 3 co-star shipper, thinking that she may ruin their dream tandem and fans are clearly not happy about that. Frank also suspected that Claire had cheated on him during the war, believing that Jamie's ghost in the first episode was that of a soldier she'd had a fling with. The co-parenting effort is somewhat working because the couple is "not miserable 24/7".
Caitriona Balfe gave the outlet some insight. They spent many years apart before that and were having difficulties conceiving a child. In truth, the trip to Scotland was more about trying to recapture a lost spark than celebrating their reunion.
Moreover, Frank's striking resemblance to his ancestor, Jack Randall, is something that Claire needs to deal with. Claire may have found it hard to pick up where she left off with Frank, but perhaps her second chance with Jamie won't be almost as hard.
New additions this season include Lauren Lyle as Laoghaire's daughter, Marsali; César Domboy as the adult Fergus; Gary Young (The Shannara Chronicles) as Mr. Willoughby; Charlie Hiett as Capt. Thomas Leonard; Wil Johnson (Waking the Dead) as Claire's friend Joe Abernathy; and John Bell (The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies) as Jamie and Claire's nephew Young Ian.
