It is back to work on the sets of “Outlander” season 3. The cast and crew were on a short Christmas break, but they are now back to continue production. Co-executive Producer Matthew B. Roberts has teased a behind-the-scenes picture to make the announcement.

With the filming of Scotland scenes, the production team have to once again work with horses. Roberts teased a picture of the stable where the horses are kept, and also a picture of a carriage that they used in one of the scenes they filmed. The producer announced with the picture that they are all back to work.

Commenting on the pictures, the fans expressed their love for horses and reminisced about past scenes with horses. The gag reels of the show after every season almost always have some footage of the cast members’ fun moments with horses.

While the short Christmas break is for everyone to sit back and relax after the hectic work for “Outlander” season 3, some cast members kept themselves busy with other things they are involved with.

Cast member Caitriona Balfe (Claire) has been involved with World Child Cancer, and has been promoting the activities of the organisation during the holidays. Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser) on the other hand has his own My Peak Challenge initiative that focuses on people getting stronger both physically and emotionally while helping others to do the same.

Half the episodes for the next season have already been filmed, including the highly anticipated Print Shop scene. Production will soon shift to South Africa where scenes of the sea voyage and Jamaica will be filmed.

“Outlander” season 3 is based on Diana Gabaldon’s book “Voyager.” The season will have 13 episodes, just like season 2, and this is expected to be the norm going forward. The producers are yet to announce an exact release date for the show this year.
