Playing 'Outlander' Season 3 Gets Later Premiere Date, Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe Give Emotional Goodbye to Scotland

Take a deep breathe, lads and lassies!

We have good news and we have some not-so-awesome news. The good news is that the highly anticipated third season of Outlander finally has a premiere date -- but the bad news is the beloved Starz series will not return until September.

The season two finale aired in July 2016, which means that Outlander fans will have had to wait for more than a year to reunite with Claire and Jamie. This droughtlander is severe, Sassenachs.

EXCLUSIVE: Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe Answer 'Outlander' Fan Questions

Production on Outlander's third season is currently transferring from Scotland to Cape Town, South Africa, for the final five episodes of the season and stars Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan have filmed a special video for fans to celebrate the location change.

"We would like to say a little thank you to the people of Scotland," Balfe says in the video above. "To all of the heritage sites that have welcomed us and to our amazing crew because without them, well, nothing would get done."

"We just want to say goodbye to Scotland and to our fans, as well and everyone who has come to see us," Heughan adds while giving a big wave. "Goodbye, Scotland!"

"But we'll be back," Balfe says cheekily. "So it's just bye for now."
