"Outlander" Season 3 Updates

According to reports, STARZ have ordered "Outlander" Season 3 and 4, that will adapt author Diana Gabaldon's "Outlander" novels "Voyager" and "Drums of Autumn":

New cast will include Gary Young ("Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny") as 'Mr. Willoughby', "a Chinese man with a deep knowledge of Eastern medicine", Charlie Hiett ("The Suspicions of Mr Whincher") as 'Captain Thomas Leonard', a British, "by-the-book" captain of the 'Artemis' who earns the post when his commanding officers die untimely deaths and "...wants to do what is right by the 'British Navy' — whether or not it is right by his own personal morals."

Hannah James and Tanya Reynolds will play the 'Dunsany' sisters 'Geneva' and 'Isobel', David Berry ("A Place to Call Home") is 'Lord John William Grey', the former Brit soldier turned governor of 'Ardsmuir Prison', John Bell ("The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies") as 'Young Ian Murray', who will join Jamie in the 18th Century and Wil Johnson ("Waking the Dead") as 'Joe Abernathy', Claire's friend and medical colleague.

"The great thing about this show is that every new season, everything sort of gets turned on its head." said series co-star Caitriona Balfe. 

"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 the 'Jamie' 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..."

"This is right after Claire gives birth to Brianna. Those scenes are wonderful because it's a new beginning, but it's so fraught with so many other things. 

"Obviously, this is Jamie's child, but Claire's in a new time and believes that Jamie is dead.

"So she's really trying to look forward and give her daughter a new life, a stable family.

"I think it's difficult for both of them. Frank is coming to terms with his wife. He didn't quite know what had happened. She disappeared and she's back. They're tentatively trying to see if they can patch things up and allow themselves to embrace a future together..."
