“Outlander” Season 3 is based on Diana Gabaldon’s book “Voyager.” According to a new report, the sea voyage will be “exciting,” with “dazzling special effects.” The cast and crew members are currently busy filming, but will get a break during the Christmas holidays.

Every new season of the popular Starz TV series feels different. The first season started in Scotland, it later moved to France in the second season. Now, the show will take the viewers on a sea voyage across the Atlantic ocean to the Caribbean.

According to a report by GoldDerby, Executive Producer Ronald D. Moore and Production Designer Jon Gary Steele have said that the “most exciting parts” of the next season will be at the sea. The journey and the scenes in Jamaica will involve “dazzling special effects and more of the gorgeously rendered production design” by Steele and his team.

Filming of “Outlander” Season 3 is currently ongoing in Scotland. Production will soon shift to South Africa, which will be standing in for Jamaica. Apart from the new locations, Jamie and Claire will also get to meet a whole new set of characters.

First, there is Lord John Grey William (David Berry), who is in charge of Ardsmuir Prison. The new character meets Jamie in jail after the Battle of Culloden and the two share an awkward friendship.

The other new characters that the audience will get to see next year are Ian Murray (John Bell), Marsali (Lauren Lyle) and Joe Abernathy (Wil Johnson). The fans will also get to see an older Fergus (Cesar Domboy) next year.

The most highly anticipated scene of “Outlander” Season 3 is the reunion of Claire and Jamie. This is expected to happen after the first four episodes. The premiere episode will pick up from right where the fans last saw Claire- at Craig na Dun stones, deciding whether or not she should make the jump.
