Ahead of the show’s San Diego Comic-Con panel this Friday, Starz has released the full trailer for Season 3 of Ron D. Moore’s series Outlander.

Based on Voyager, the third novel in Diana Gabaldon’s book series, the 13-episode third season will introduce several new characters in the form of (among others) a grown-up Lord John Grey (David Berry) and Geneva Dunsany, played by Mercy Street’s Hannah James (who is a dead ringer for Caitriona Balfe, who plays Claire) — both of whom are seen in the trailer.

While the first part centers on Claire (Balfe), Frank (Tobias Menzies) and (Jamie's) daughter Brianna’s (Sophie Skelton) home life in the 1950s and '60s, the second part puts the spotlight on Jamie (Sam Heughan) back in the 18th century, as well as Roger's (Richard Rankin) search for the big Scot.

Read up on the extended synopsis before checking out the new Season 3 trailer, and let us know if you're looking forward to the upcoming season. Outlander returns on Sept. 10 on Starz. You can also have a look at SYFY's interview with the former Battlestar Galactica showrunner here

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?
