Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe will be coming back to the small screen in 2017 for Outlander Season 3 but there’s something more exciting than the series itself. The chemistry between these two actors is undeniable, which led to fans speculating that they are already dating.
According to Parent Herald, dating rumors started to resurface following Heughan’s tweets calling Balfe “wifey”. Since Outlander Season 1, fans have been hoping that the tandem will eventually end up together because of their amazing chemistry.
Avid fans are hoping that there is more between Heughan and Balfe than just a professional relationship. As many noted on the Twitter account of Heughan, posting: “Congrats too the wifey and thanks to the strong fan vote!!!x.” Following Caitriona Balfe’s winning the Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series Award in Entertainment Weekly’s Poppy.
However, according to E! News, Heughan and Balfe previously addressed rumors that they are dating saying that fans might have mistaken their close relationship.
“We’re not together.” Balfe said. “We’ve always said from the get go that we’re incredibly great friends. And to have that friendship and that closeness and to be able to get along as we do on set, it’s great that we’re able to get along that well. ” While Heughan says that it would be strange to see them date in real life and would be difficult to work together and be together. He went on saying that it would be unfair for the fans to have them lead on to something that is not true.
Still, fans are persistent. And yet, after several months, their relationship is still being speculated upon by the fans, mostly because they are always flirting with each other on and off cam. Two people who are not an “item” don’t call each other pet names unless they definitely have something going on.
Game Guide spoilers show that Jamie Fraser (Heughan) and Claire Randall (Balfe) are set to film their reunion scene in ‘Outlander’ Season 3. This has triggered rumors that the two will be doing more bed scenes this season since they were separated for a very long time.
Outlander Season 3 release date will be in 2017 on Starz.
