Starz dropped the second trailer for the third season of Outlander this afternoon. It has a few iconic lines and scenes that I can pick out of the book. There is no Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) scenes together, so this trailer focuses on what happens before the anticipated reunion, as well as what happens leading up to Claire’s return. Nope, nevermind. Wait until the very end of the trailer, to see Claire actually back in Edinburgh arriving at A. Malcolm’s printshop.
Other characters that can be seen in the trailer are Frank (Tobias Menzies), Brianna (Sophie Skelton), Roger (Richard Rankin), Lord John Grey (David Berry), Jenny (Laura Donnelly), and Geneva Dunsany (Hannah James).
Updated with a different version of the trailer at the bottom of the post.
The official synopsis of season three:
The third season of “Outlander” 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 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?
