British-American drama series, Outlander, is one of those television shows that are highly anticipated by viewers this year. It has been roughly five months since the series has last been seen, so it is expected that its return will be gracefully welcomed by fans.
Following the announcement of renewal for its third and fourth seasons, which will adapt the Outlander novels, Voyager and Drums of Autumn, several speculations and spoilers have since been appearing online.
The previous season of the series showed a scene in 1948 where Claire, portrayed by Caitriona Balfe, was leaving Jamie Fraser, played by actor Sam Heughan. She decided to go back to her first husband, Tobias Menzies' character, Frank Randall. Claire then finds out that Jamie had survived from the Battle of Culloden twenty years later.
According to a report from Movie Pilot, fans of Outlander are going to expect a lot more dramatic scenes between Jamie and Claire in the upcoming season. The show's executive producer, Matthew Roberts, revealed that the episodes, especially the finale, will be 'spine-tingling', which excite the fans more.
He added that the third season will offer more emotional scenes that would definitely intensify the viewers' feelings. Fans are worried that this might mean a sign of bad things to happen among the characters. However, he said that the dramatic scenarios would mostly include tears of joy. Although he did not put in details the possible occurrences, his statement had put high hopes for the fans.
Meanwhile, according to International Business Times, author of the Outlander novels, Diana Gabaldon, has reportedly confirmed that the newest character on the upcoming season, Mr. Willoughby, will be seen on season 7 despite the previous reports saying the show is going to skip the character's storyline.
Mr. Willoughby will be the newest addition to the cast of the drama series. He is a scholar who worked for the Chinese government and will be met by Jamie Fraser during their encounter in Edinburgh.
There has been no official casting announcement yet for Outlander but Gabaldon assures that this will be happening soon this year.
