'Outlander' Season 3 To Premiere This Fall; Caitriona Balfe & Sam Heughan Say Goodbye To Scotland

The Season 3 premiere of "Outlander" finally has a premiere month.

Starz announced on Wednesday that the series, from Executive Producer Ronald D. Moore, and based on the books by Diana Gabaldon, will return in September 2017.

And while the wait for the show's return is longer than expected, there's a little video of series stars Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan to help tide us over.

In the brand new video, Caitriona and Sam say goodbye and thanks to Scotland – for now. The reason for the goodbye is because production is moving to Cape Town, South Africa.

"Outlander" will be filming sea voyage scenes on the sets previously occupied by the Starz series "Black Sails." 

"We're going to Cape Town and we’re extremely excited," Sam says in the clip. "There's sunshine apparently. We don’t know what that is."

Access Hollywood recently spoke with Luke Arnold and Hannah New of "Black Sails," which is now in its fourth and final season on Starz, about their old haunt's upcoming residents.

"They're going to have a lot of fun," Luke said. "Very jealous!"

With our fantasy casting minds on, we of course suggested there should be a cameo or crossover between the two shows (right!?!).

"I'm waiting for that promo when it's the two ships passing each other, kind of. Letting the 'Outlander' guys take over," Luke said.

In related "Outlander" news, Starz announced the show will head to San Diego Comic-Con this summer. 

"Outlander" returns in September. "Black Sails" airs Sunday nights at 9/8c on Starz.
