This week there were several Outlander related articles and announcements. Below are those I found particularly important to share with you.
- The Outlander TV Series has been renewed for Seasons 3 and 4. It’s an unprecedented move by a network to offer such a guarantee. Series producer and writer, Matt Roberts told Hollywood Reporter they were already working on Season 3 when the formal announcement came in. Book fans are cheering as we are excitedly looking forward to the most loved of all the books in the series, Voyager being adapted for our viewing pleasure, along with Drums of Autumn on its heels. From what I have seen around social media this week, the seasons are likely to be 13 episodes each for the welfare of the cast and crew. And after blowing up Twitter earlier this week with an innocent message to Matt Roberts, it seems that he will be writing the episode with the most favorite scene from Voyager. That is seriously fantastic news for fans. He’s going to rock that episode.
- The Artistry of Outlander Exhibit will be on display at the Paley Center in Los Angeles from June 8-August 14, 2016. If you live in or near LA, this is a must do activity. You need to go see the costumes by Terry Dresbach and set design pieces by Jon Gary Steele. They have done the most amazing and authentic job handling the multitudes of period based nuances. Admission is free to the public.
- The season finale S2 E13 airing on 9, July 2016, will be 90 minutes instead of the usual 60 minutes. The premise for the finale ties into the season opener. The episode is titled Dragonfly in Amber. Here is the official description from the linked article: Flashing forward ahead to 1968, Claire travels to Scotland with her twenty-year-old daughter, Brianna, and meets Roger Wakefield (remember wee Roger Reverend Wakefield’s adopted son?). Claire visits Lallybroch and Culloden Moor to make peace with the past, while Brianna and Roger bond over researching Randall family history. Claire finally reveals the truth to Brianna about her time travel through the stones, her life in 1700’s Scotland, and Brianna’s true parentage. The story is intercut with another one back in the 18th century, which happens on the day of the Battle of Culloden. When Jamie’s last ditch attempts to deter The Prince fail, he and Claire come up with a dangerous plan – which Dougal overhears, inciting him to a murderous rage. Jamie must do everything he can to save the ones he loves, even if it means saying goodbye to some — or all — of them.
I am absolutely thrilled with every announcement. To think, it all started with a book…
