Based on Diana Gabaldon's eight-book series of fantasy novels and starring Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe, "the third season of Outlander picks up right after Claire travels through the stones to return to her life in 1948," a press release said.

"Now pregnant, she struggles with the fallout of her sudden reappearance and its effect on her marriage to her first husband, Frank. Meanwhile, in the 18th century, Jamie suffers from the aftermath of his doomed last stand at the historic battle of Culloden, as well as the loss of Claire."
