Below is Starz’s official description of the character:
“He’s a steadfast and honorable British subject, torn between a finely-honed sense of familial duty and a strong moral compass of right and wrong. He is boyishly handsome with an upper class rearing — the consummate gentleman. However, a scandal from his past has relegated Lord John to an undesirable position as governor of a desolate prison in Northern Scotland.”
The third season of Outlander, which is based on Voyager, will return in 2017 (no premiere date announced at this time).
