Lord John Grey is coming to Outlander Season 3!
The news should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling series. And yet, nothing is quite like confirmation, especially when it comes to a character so many people have been eager to see.
EW reports that Australian actor David Berry will take over in the role of the much-beloved Grey in the third season of Outlander. Season 3 will be based on Voyager, the third novel in the series, originally published in 1993.
The official description of Lord Grey by Starz reads as follows: “He’s a steadfast and honorable British subject, torn between a finely-honed sense of familial duty and a strong moral compass of right and wrong. He is boyishly handsome with an upper class rearing — the consummate gentleman. However, a scandal from his past has relegated Lord John to an undesirable position as governor of a desolate prison in Northern Scotland.”
Grey, for those not familiar with the novels, is the Ardsmuir Prison governor who strikes up a dubious friendship with Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan). He’s been a long-time favorite of fans of the novels for years.
Outlander Season 3 will premiere in 2017.
