Exclusive: Sam Heughan on Jamie's Journey in 'Outlander' Season 3

Editorial Manager

With the third series of award-winning hit Outlander almost upon us, we caught up with star Sam Heughan and found out what’s in store for rebellious Jamie Fraser.

When we left Jamie at the end of the last series, he had just been involved in the bloody Battle of Culloden, and found himself on the losing side. Season three, which premieres on September 11 in the UK, will pick up the action and promises to show the defeat from Jamie’s perspective.
