Pictures from the production set of “Outlander” season 3 have reportedly leaked online. Two new pictures of Claire have also been released officially, which are from the character’s time in Boston with her first husband Frank.

The following article contains minor spoilers of the next season of the popular Starz TV series. Readers who don’t wish to know the production details and details about what happens next on the show are advised to stop here.

Fans who have been following the production updates and leaks of the next season will be aware that Sam Heughan (Jamie) and Caitriona Balfe (Claire) previously filmed a harbour scene. The two actors were in their new costume after their reunion scene, and Heughan had also donned a new hat to prepare for the sea voyage.

The two characters will be travelling to Jamaica in the next season. The scenes related to the ship, and the Caribbean will be filmed in South Africa. Pictures from the production set in South Africa have now leaked online that show the production crew making preparations to film the sea voyage scenes.

A set of pictures from “Outlander” season 3 production set in South Africa posted on the Twitter page of Wanda Serrano shows two ships for the scenes. The ships have not been newly constructed but are being reused from the “Black Sails” TV series of Starz.

According to the book “Voyager,” on which the next season is based, Jamie and Claire will be travelling onboard a ship named Artemis. The two characters will spend considerable amount of time on the ship, where they will meet new characters.

More pictures posted on Twitter show the ship set and other locations that will be used for filming. The producers haven’t announced a schedule for South Africa, so it isn’t clear from when the cast members will begin their work there.

More than half of the 13 episodes of the next season have already been filmed. The first few episodes will show the separate storylines of Claire and Jamie during their years of separation.

Claire will be back in Boston with her husband Frank (Tobias Menzies) in the next season. New pictures of the two characters posted on TV Insider show how the two characters attempt to rebuild their lives together in America and try to leave their memories of Scotland behind.

Claire and Frank will welcome a new member of the family in “Outlander” season 3. They will raise Jamie’s daughter as their own.
