Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has set an April 10 release date for “Outlander: Season Three,” which is being released on Blu-ray Disc, DVD and Digital. A limited collector’s edition also will be available.
Based on Voyager, the third of eight books in Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling “Outlander” series about a British World War II nurse who is mysteriously swept back in time to Scotland in 1743, “Outlander: Season Three” finds nurse Claire (Caitriona Balfe in a Golden Globe-nominated role) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) attempting to build a life apart from one another. But fate has other plans, as the two find their way back to each other and set sail for new lands.
“Outlander” is a hit Starz series that also stars Tobias Menzies (TV’s “Game of Thrones”), Lotte Verbeek (TV’s “The Borgias”), Sophie Skelton (TV’s “Ren”), and Richard Rankin (TV’s “Thirteen”). The “Outlander” TV series is developed by executive producer Ronald D. Moore (TV’s “Battlestar Galactica”) and is produced by Tall Ship Productions, Story Mining & Supply Company, and Left Bank Pictures in association with Sony Pictures Television.
“Outlander: Season Three” contains all 13 episodes in a five-disc limited collector’s edition, Blu-ray Disc and DVD sets, along with 27 deleted and extended scenes with introductions by Moore, a gag reel and two featurettes. In “A Traveling Show Takes Sail,” the cast and crew describe what it was like moving the production from Scotland to South Africa and the challenges shooting aboard the Artemis ship; and Verbeek and other cast and crew discuss Geillis Duncan’s return this season in “The Transformation of Geillis Duncan.”
Exclusive content on the Blu-ray Disc and limited collector’s edition versions includes an additional scene with Lord John Grey & Lady Isobel Dunsany from the episode “Of Lost Things,” the original chemistry test between Caitriona and Sam with an introduction by Moore, the “Outlander” podcasts for each episode with commentary from Moore and others, and four additional featurettes. “Claire & Jamie: Together Again” discusses what it was like for Caitriona and Sam to work separately for half of the season and what it was like reuniting their characters after 20 years had passed, while “Jamie’s Revolution” and “Claire: Through Time” have Caitriona and Sam discussing their characters’ journeys this season. “Saying Goodbye to Frank & Jonathan Randall” is a final farewell to Tobias Menzies and both of his integral characters, Frank and Black Jack Randall. In addition, the limited collector’s edition Blu-ray Disc will feature special packaging, including 28 pages of behind-the-scenes photographs.
