Executive Producer Ronald D. Moore answered a few fan questions about “Outlander” Season 3 recently. Moore revealed that he has written the script of the premiere episode, and shared other titbits about the new season online.
Moore took some time from his busy schedule to answer a few fan questions on his official Twitter page. When he revealed that he had written the script for the premiere episode, the fans had more questions about it. The fans wanted to know why the first episode was important enough to demand his personal attention, and they wondered if he wanted to set the tone for the season. Another fan wanted to know if they have already filmed the episode.
Both Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser) and Moore released videos from the first day of filming online. The videos showed the filming of scenes related to the Battle of Culloden. While the previous season was a build-up to this big battle there were no actual action sequences of the fights featured.
Jamie is expected to rush back to take part in the action, alongside the other Highlanders in “Outlander” Season 3. There are at least two major deaths expected in this battle. The TV series will then show the viewers the aftermath of the battle.
Moore teased that the filming is “off to a great start” and they have “almost finished with block one.” The next season is based on Diana Gabaldon’s book “Voyager.” The producer said that his team is still considering their options about where to film the scenes involving ships.
The big event the fans are looking forward to in “Outlander” Season 3 is the reunion of Jamie and Claire (Caitriona Balfe). The two characters will be separated at the beginning, as Claire is still in the future when the last season ended, and she was considering travelling back through time again. When asked in which episode the two characters will be reunited, Moore chose not to reveal that information. He did, however, tease that there will “definitely” be more sexy scenes on the show this time around.
