Outlander fans have a reason to rejoice now that producer and writer Mathew B. Roberts said the “Droughtlander” won’t be there for too long. While fans are set to enjoy a 90-minute finale on Saturday , planning for Outlander Season 3 is already underway.
According to showrunner Ron Moore, the shooting for the next installment of the series will begin in late August or early September. The shooting for the upcoming season, which is based on Diana Gabaldon’s third book in the series Voyager, will start off in Scotland. Moore added that Scotland won’t be the only place where the team will be shooting.
“Voyager is another another challenge, a different challenge, for the show,” Zap2it quoted Moore as saying. “Fortunately that story at least begins in Scotland, so we don’t have to immediately switch to France like we did this year. But I know we’re not shooting solely in Scotland — we have to find a ship and a tank and facilities and sets and the whole nine yards to do a sea voyage, because there’s an extended sea voyage. They sail that ship around the Caribbean, then there’s a hurricane and shipwreck.”
He added that the Caribbean sequence will be the most challenging part of the season and that he’s eagerly waiting for the shooting to start for “all the ship scenes.”
“Now the fans can have it sooner than what they think. The Droughtlander won’t be as long as they expect,” he said. He also said that he has written two scripts for the next season, the Scotland Now reported.
As for the Outlander Season 3 characters, Moore said no character has been cast yet, but he is really excited about casting young Ian and older Fergus.
