Outlander fans, rejoice! With the #droughtlander finally set to end on Sept. 10, Starz has released a new video featurette ahead of the highly anticipated return of Ronald D. Moore's time-travel series.

Titled "Parallel Lives," the new video boasts a lot of exciting new footage centering on Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) during their 20-year separation through time and space and reveals scenes plucked from the pages of Voyager (on which Season 3 is based). Also: We have more of wee Fergus (Romann Berrux), Claire's 20th-century friend, Joe Abernathy (Wil Johnson), and my personal book favorite, Lord John Grey (David Berry).

The featurette was released for the show's Television Critics Association panel that took place over the weekend, and you can read all about it here, my Sassenachs. In the meanwhile, check out the video before reading up on a detailed Season 3 synopsis:

The third season of Outlander picks up right after Claire (Caitriona Balfe) travels through the stones to return to her life in 1948. Now pregnant with Jamie's (Sam Heughan) child, she struggles with the fallout of her sudden reappearance and its effect on her marriage to her first husband, Frank (Tobias Menzies). 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. As the years pass, Jamie and Claire attempt to make a life apart from one another, each haunted by the memory of their lost love. The budding possibility that Claire can return to Jamie in the past breathes new hope into Claire's heart … as well as new doubt. Separated by continents and centuries, Claire and Jamie must find their way back to each other. As always, adversity, mystery and adventure await them on the path to reunion. And the question remains: When they find each other, will they be the same people who parted at the standing stones, all those years ago?

Outlander Season 3 premieres on Sept. 10 on Starz. Are you looking forward to the end of the Droughtlander and the return of your favorite characters?
