Cast member Sam Heughan teased some details about “Outlander” Season 3 in a recent interview. Meanwhile, a new report has compiled character descriptions of all the new characters on the show this time.

In an interview with People, Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser) said that the new season will span over 20 years. The actor revealed that the show will take the viewers to Scotland, Jamaica, England and finally reach North Carolina. He described the plot as “a real adventure.”

Heughan teased that he filmed a few scenes that the crew were apparently not aware of. So, there are going to be some “surprises and really dramatic, epic scenes” in the next season. The actor did not elaborate on what exactly these scenes were and who were involved.

Filming of the first block of the next season has already been completed. Jamie and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) are expected to spend the first few episodes apart in “Outlander” Season 3, so the scenes that Heughan is talking about may not be the reunion of the two characters, which is one of the most highly anticipated moments this time around.

Meanwhile, The Hollywood Reporter has compiled details of all the new characters of the new season that have been announced so far. The report begins with the grownup Fergus, played by César Domboy. According to the official character description of grown up Fergus; he will have a “strong sense of loyalty and decorum” and is said to be “the ultimate romantic.”

Then there is Laoghaire’s (Nell Hudson) daughter Marsali, to be played by Lauren Lyle. The new character has been described as “rebellious and romantic,” who knows what she wants and goes after it.

Perhaps the biggest casting announcement for “Outlander” Season 3 is Lord John Grey, which will be played by David Berry. The new character will meet Jamie at Ardsmuir Prison.
