“Outlander” will be very different upon its return in Season 3, star Caitriona Balfe tells TheWrap.
“The great thing about this show is that every new season, everything sort of gets turned on its head,” the Starz star told TheWrap’s Stuart Brazell in a video interview. “In the beginning, when we come back this season, I think everyone knows at this point the stories are quite separate. We see a lot of Jamie’s story, and what he has gone through in 20 years. We see a bit of Claire and Frank, Claire and Brianna, and you see a bit of Claire as a professional doctor, surgeon. It’s just so different.”
But don’t worry, fans of Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Balfe). There will be a payoff after Season 2 that separated the lovers across time once again.
“Of course, there will be a reunion,” Balfe continued. “Which I think is really beautiful and it’s been filmed really beautifully. It’s very interesting, it’s like, how do two people come together after not seeing each other for 20 years, after both believing each other have died, and how do you build something real again?”
Balfe, who is nominated for a Golden Globe this Sunday for her role on “Outlander,” also revealed who she’s bringing to the show, whether Heughan will also be in attendance, and which other ladies in her category she’s rooting for.
“Outlander” Season 3 is currently in production.
