Showrunner Matt B. Roberts looked back at Outlander filming history earlier this week. Just where were the cast and crew a year ago?

With Outlander Season 4 still filming, it’s fun to look back at where the cast and crew were a year ago. That’s exactly what showrunner Matt B. Roberts did earlier this week, sharing a beautiful picture from Outlander filming history. A year-and-two-days ago, the cast and crew were just wrapping up the third season of filming.

Part of the third season was filmed in Cape Town, South Africa. This was used for many of the Jamaica and Caribbean scenes to help get the right weather, look, and feel for the end of Outlander Season 3.

Roberts shared a photo of the area that would be used for the finale when Claire and Jamie desperately (and successfully) stopped Geillis from going through time to kill Brianna. It doesn’t seem like yesterday that we learned Season 3 had finished filming and we were just months away from catching the whole season! The location was also used for many of the beach and water scenes, as there’s a film studio within the area.

Interestingly, this image throwback comes just days before Outlander Season 4 filming finishes. As many suspected, the fourth season will wrap by the end of this month. In July, various members of the cast have a number of projects and conventions to attend, with the first taking place from June 30 to July 1 in Paris.

Filming will also start for Heughan’s new movie, Bloodshot, which will reportedly happen in South Africa. Meanwhile, Balfe will soon start filming Ford vs. Ferrari (which is still to receive an official name) with Matt Damon.

The cast and crew are onto the season finale filming now, with many night shoots taking place. It’s going to be exciting to find out when the filming wraps and if there are any photos of those final glances for seven months as the cast and crew take time off before filming Outlander Season 5.
