That’s a Wrap! Outlander Celebrates the Completion of Filming Season 3

Outlander cast and crew celebrated end of filming season 3 today.  Now it’s on to the editing room.

Outlander season 3 will follow Diana Gabaldon’s 3rd book in the Outlander series titled Voyager. A good number of book fans will tell you that Voyager was one of their favorite books including myself.

Warning may contain spoilers!

Voyager begins right after battle of Culloden between the British and the Scots.   At Jamie’s insistence Claire has went back though the stone to 1948 because she was carrying Jamie’s unborn child and he wanted to protect her from the battle.   One of the reason’s this is a favorite book is that it tells of Jamie and Claire’s lives without each other for 20 years. When Claire discovers that Jamie didn’t die on Culloden battlefield and she decides to go back through the stones to reunite with him.

This reunion is one of the most anticipated events for season 3 by fans and is referred to as The Printshop scene.

Outlander writer, Diana Gabaldon confirmed herself that the Printshop scene meets with her approval.


To which she replied

Other scenes fans are looking forward to are the Brothel, & Turtle Soup. There are far too many good scenes in this book and fans are hoping that they don’t get put on the cutting room floor.

So today was the last day of Outlander filming and Twitter lit up like a jar full of lighting bugs you caught on a summer’s evening. Here are some of the happenings across social media today.

After Roark gyms in South Africa announced that Sam would be doing a Facebook live with them he posted on Twitter the following.

Caitriona sent out a thank you to the crew for all their hard work.

All writer/producer Matt Roberts had to say was…

No wonder the man is tired he’s work is never done.

Caitriona says this season has been like birthing a baby. Which is appropriate since her character Claire does give birth in season 3.

It’s a wrap party birth pool

‘Outlander’ season 3: Ahoy matees! First picture from South Africa of ship below deck teased

Co-executive Producer Matthew B. Roberts has teased a new behind-the-scenes picture from the production set of “Outlander” season 3. This is the first official picture from the production set in South Africa, where the production crew is busy at work, and the cast members will begin filming soon.

The picture is from below the decks of a ship. The producers will be using the same ships that Starz previously used for their other original series “Black Sails.” The pirate series is set a few years before the events in Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel “Treasure Island,” and it is currently airing its final season.

Roberts appears to be one of the first producers to land in South Africa to inspect the sets and get ready for filming. The cast and crew will begin with scenes on a ship and later shift to the Caribbean scenes.

The picture in itself is not a spoiler, but Roberts teased that the pictures he shares do contain clues about the plot, and it is up to the fans to figure them out. He promised to share pictures that reveal a lot more when the show airs.

“Outlander” season 3 is based on Diana Gabaldon’s book “Voyager.” In the book, the main characters Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) travel on a ship named Artemis, shortly after their highly anticipated reunion.

Just after sharing the picture, Roberts had to face some interesting comments from some of the fans. The producer decided to do a quick poll in order to make sure the fans are interested in the teasers he shares. He got a thumping confirmation that the behind-the-scenes pictures from the sets are more than welcome.

Commenting specifically about the few fans who had complained to Roberts online, the producer pointed out that his Twitter page is not a complaint box for the show. He also added that those who have concerns with his posts have the option of not following him. Comments of hope and wishes, however, are always welcome, he said.

While some fans don’t want to see any spoilers, others can’t get enough. When Roberts announced the results of his poll, and that he would be sharing more behind-the-scenes pictures, one of fans asked him to “start sharing.” The amused producer explained that he had “just” shared a picture of a ship from the set.

Filming of “Outlander” season 3 is set to wrap by June, and the show will premiere in September. Starz is yet to announce an exact release date.
