Today, Starz revealed the return date for Outlander, their highly-acclaimed time-traveling romantic adventure, based on Diana Gabaldon‘s epic series. Starring the incredible trio of Sam Heughan as James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser, Caitriona Balfe as his wife Claire Randall Fraser, and Tobias Menzies as HER husband (I know), Frank Randall, as well as their nemesis Black Jack Randall, the 3rd season will premiere Sunday, September 10th at 8:00pm ET.
Check out the photos, SDCC info, synopsis (and a few season 2 spoilers) below.
At the end of last season Claire went back through the stones at Jamie’s urging, and she lived a happy/unhappy with Frank, raising her and Jamie’s daughter, Brianna. She finally goes back to Scotland and is haunted by that past, seeing visions of Jamie and running into another stone traveler.
I know I can’t wait until the Frasers reunite.
Jamie Fraser: “I have lied, killed, and broken trust. But when I stand before God, I’ll have one thing to say to weigh against all the rest… ‘Lord, you gave me a real woman. God, I loved her well.'” Sigh…

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?
