The premium cabler in June announced a two-season pickup for the series from developer/executive producer Ronald D. Moore and Sony Pictures TV. The third season will consist of 13 episodes based on Voyager, the third of eight books in Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling Outlander series. In March, production and filming on the current season moves from its home base in Scotland to Cape Town, South Africa, to shoot sea voyage scenes on the former sets of Starz’s original series Black Sails. Production on Season 3 began in September and will wrap in June.

The Season 3 return comes months later than Season 2’s spring 2016 premiere.

“While ‘Droughtlander’ will last just a little longer, we feel it is important to allow the production the time and number of episodes needed to tell the story of the Voyager book in its entirety,” said Carmi Zlotnik, President of Programming at Starz. “The scale of this book is immense, and we owe the fans the very best show. Returning in September will make that possible.”

The story picks up right after Claire (Caitriona Balfe) travels through the stones to return to her life in 1948. Now pregnant with Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) child, she struggles with the fallout of her sudden reappearance and its effect on her marriage to her first husband, Frank (Tobias Menzies). 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 each other, each haunted by the memory of their lost love.

“With the scope of the production and all of the intricate details that go into the Emmy-nominated sets and costumes, we had to make sure everything is kept to the high standard of the previous seasons and Diana Gabaldon’s beautiful story,” said Steve Kent, Senior EVP Programming at Sony Pictures Television. “We’re so proud of the incredible work that Ron and the Outlander team have done.”

Moore, Maril Davis, Matthew B. Roberts, Toni Graphia, Anne Kenney and Andy Harries serve as executive producers of Outlander, which is produced by Tall Ship Productions, Story Mining & Supply Company and Left Bank Pictures in association with Sony Pictures Television. [Source]

When Outlander premiered in 2014 on Starz, the historical drama immediately captured the hearts of both fans of Diana Gabaldon’s original book series as well as plenty of newcomers who couldn’t help but fall in love with the fantasy romance. Part of the rabid obsession with the series is owed to its two fantastic leads, Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan, whose onscreen relationship as Claire and Jamie is one of TV’s most electric. Since we’re currently in the midst of one hell of a Droughtlander until season three returns, we decided to go right to the source and hopped on the phone with Heughan to pump him for details. Although he didn’t give up all the goods (he’s a true Scottish gentleman, after all), he teased everything from the big surprises fans should expect to see in the new episodes to what it’s like to age two decades between seasons.

POPSUGAR: I have to say, I really love the interactions you have with Outlander fans on social media. It seems like there are few fandoms that are as strong and supportive as Outlander’s, and the cast seems to have a great relationship with them.

Sam Heughan: I think we have possibly the best fans — actually, I know we have the best fans that there are. They’re so supportive of what we do, and they’re extremely passionate and enthusiastic. They’re very discerning as well. They don’t take any crap. We started out making the show ultimately for the fans, but we’ve gathered new fans as well as fans of the books. We just love to interact with them. Sometimes we don’t get the chance to, or have enough time to, but it’s been great meeting some of them. It’s been amazing. After almost three years, you can really feel the relationship with them.

PS: I bet. Have you had any particularly memorable moments with any of them?

Scottish actor Sam Heughan has been announced as Scotland President of blood cancer charity Bloodwise.

Sam, 36, who plays Jamie Fraser in the hit TV series Outlander, has been a staunch supporter of the charity since 2011, most recently spearheading fundraising and fitness campaign ‘My Peak Challenge’.

The initiative galvanised Sam’s supporters to raise £225,000 to help fund a clinical trial that is testing treatment for one of the most aggressive forms of leukaemia.

He was announced president of the charity at a reception held at the iconic Lighthouse in Glasgow.

It is hoped that Sam’s role at the charity will continue to raise awareness of blood cancers such as leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma.

Sam, who was joined during the evening by Scottish blood cancer patients, researchers and fundraisers, said: “It is a great honour to be given this title and to have met the extended Bloodwise family and individuals who have contributed to research and helped to fundraise.

“They are making a remarkable difference.

“I hope to honour all those affected by blood cancer and continue the fight against this disease.”

Yvonne Dickson, head of regional fundraising, presented a hand engraved Scottish Quaich to Sam to celebrate the occasion.
