Press: Outlander: Claire and Jamie’s reunion episode will be supersize

Episode 6 of the third season of Outlander will get the supersize treatment when it airs on Sunday, Oct. 22. Not only will the episode, titled “A. Malcolm,” finally bring the beloved century-crossed lovers back together, fans will also get the added bonus of a 74-minute extended episode to really relish the couple’s long-anticipated reunion.

And that’s not all. Before the epic sixth episode, Starz will air the first five episodes of the season so far, giving viewers the chance to truly prep for the momentous moment.

It’s been 20 long years apart for Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan), but in episode 5, the couple finally found themselves back in the same century and country after Claire traveled back through the standing stones to 18th century Edinburgh — much to Jamie’s surprise!

Cesar Domboy is said to be making his first appearance on the series as adult Fergus.

Press/Video/Photos: Get to Know ‘Outlander’ Star Cesar Domboy

There’s a fresh face playing a familiar role in season three of Outlander!

Given the 20-year time jump headed our way in the next chapter Starz’s hit drama, French actor César Domboy has been cast to play the role of older Fergus. (As you’ll recall, Fergus was previously played by the oh-so-cute Romann Berrux in season two.)

While we’re thrilled to welcome Domboy to the clan, we realized that many fans probably don’t know much about the 27-year-old actor — but that’s all about to change…

ET traveled to Outlander’s season three set in Scotland last year and we sat down with Domboy for an oh-so-informative game of “Would You Rather…” and let’s just say that all of his answers are beyond adorable. (And we’re not just referring to his accent!)

Press play on the video above to find out if Domboy would rather be whipped by a red coat or be forced to whip Jamie. WARNING: His answer will most definitely make you swoon, Sassenachs.

Outlander’s third season premieres Sunday, Sept. 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Starz.

Press/Video: Finally, We Have a Premiere Date for Outlander Season 3

Get the inside info about the new episodes. Plus, an exclusive video of a very anguished Jamie and Claire.

Finally, the Outlander news you’ve been waiting for: We’re thrilled to announce that Season 3 of the STARZ time-travel romance will return Sunday, September 10. Yes, that’s right—you can now mark the end of Droughtlander in your calendar.

Thirteen new episodes devoted to Claire and Jamie will air this fall, and they’ll be based on Voyager, the third of Diana Gabaldon’s eight Outlander books.

Here’s the official season three poster, showing Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) on opposite sides of the standing stone—and in totally different centuries. Claire’s in the 1960s, having returned to her original life, and husband Frank (Tobias Menzies), while Jamie’s in the 1700s. No, you’re crying.

And here’s an exclusive live-action version of the poster, featuring a very anguished Claire and Jamie:

“You can come back to your life,” Claire muses in voiceover, “but it’s never the same. Maybe it’s enough to have gone once. How many people can say they had that?”

As for what we can expect, the new season will pick up right after Claire returns to her old life, pregnant with Jamie’s child. As for Jamie, we’ll see him at the historic battle of Culloden, fighting not only Black Jack Randall but his grief at losing Claire. The battle itself will be epic, showrunner Ronald D. Moore told ELLE.com: “I’m very excited about finally delivering Culloden to the audience after having talked about this pivotal event for so long.”

Moore also says the two are building their lives again independently: “We’re going to reset the story and the characters at the start of the season, giving the audience a window into what happened to Jamie at the battle of Culloden, as well as what happened to Claire in the twentieth century.”

What should fans be most excited about, according to Moore? “Getting to see the ways in which Jamie and Claire grew and changed over the course of their 20-year separation is a very exciting prospect.” And with Scotland, Cape Town, and even an ocean voyage to the New World (which Moore calls “a big turning point in the saga”) on the horizon, the very setting of this epic romance will change.

Of course, a reunion is definitely on the cards for our favorite time-defying lovers, though it might take a while. The only question is whether they’ll still feel the same way after so long apart. But true love never dies, right?

Press: Outlander: EW will release the drama’s next cover in September

In anticipation of the third season debut of Outlander, EW will release its third cover devoted to the Starz drama in September. Besides offering an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at production that took place in South Africa earlier this year, we’ll release a new set of portraits that are sure to make your pulses race.

That’s not all EW has planned in preparation for the third season based on Voyager, the third book in author Diana Gabaldon’s bestselling Outlander series. Richard Rankin, who plays Roger Wakefield in the series, will follow in Sam Heughan’s footsteps by participating in the magazine’s annual Brave New Warriors panel July 21 at Comic-Con International in San Diego. And come September, Amy Wilkinson and yours truly will resume our weekly Outlander Live! show on EW Radio, SiriusXM 105.

The new season picks up right after Claire (Caitriona Balfe) travels through the stones to return to her life in 1948, where she gives birth to Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) daughter Brianna and resumes her marriage to her first husband, Frank (Tobias Menzies). Back 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.

Press/Video: First Outlander Season 3 Trailer Reveals Claire and Jamie’s Painful Separation

As any Outlander fan will tell you, the love story of Claire and Jamie Fraser has always been a bit star-crossed. That’s what happens when you mix romance and time travel. But Season 3 promises the rockiest road yet for the Frasers as the couple are ripped apart for what looks like a long time.

Calling in from the set in Scotland late last year, Jamie actor Sam Heughan told Vanity Fair that being apart from Balfe for part (we won’t say how long) of Season 3 was like “having a death in the family. Well, I don’t know. I mean, it’s just like a different show. It’s hard to separate yourself from the character. It’s always hard when we’re apart, actually, because she’s a great person, great to come to work with, and a very good actress. But I think it all adds to the reunion—if there’s a reunion, or when there’s a reunion—well, you know there’s one in the books. It should be very special.” Caitriona Balfe jokingly responded, “Och! He’s already killed me in his mind. Gone. Too sad.”

According to the official Starz description:

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?

If Claire has to be separated from her beloved Jamie, at least she can console herself with the fabulous fahsion of the 1960s. (Listen! I’m just trying to find a silver lining here.) “Probably, to the disappointment of all the costume fans, I did not miss that corset or bum roll for one second,” Balfe says of her more modern Season 3 wardrobe. “Being able to do 40s, 50s, and 60s—especially the 60s—it was just such fun. [Costume designer] Terry [Dresbach] had in racks and racks of clothing. She made some pieces in-house and other pieces are vintage finds that she had. I love what each era tells you about the women of the time—it’s just such an interesting barometer. Some of the 60s pieces are so cool and beautiful that I asked her to make me doubles of some things.”

The third season of Outlander—which will include 13 episodes based upon Voyager, the third of eight books in Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling series—will premiere in September. Fans eager to get an early taste can also catch the Outlander panel at San Diego Comic Con this summer.
