So has she, I wonder, given the series a definitive ending? “I wrote the last scene of the last book 15 years ago,” she replies, after the kind of wry pause that seems to typify her approach.
I am standing in an ostentatiously nondescript modern building in Granton, a suburb of Edinburgh, next to a former marine biologist whose novels have sold in excess of 30m copies. We are looking at the backside of what resembles a large tartan onesie. The author is Diana Gabaldon, who is eagerly taking photographs on her mobile and gleefully saying she will be sending these to the person who does the costumes for Outlander, the TV series based on her cult sequence of novels that launched in 2014.
Lionsgate is negotiating with Outlander star Sam Heughan for the male lead opposite Kate McKinnon and Mila Kunis in The Spy Who Dumped Me, an Imagine Entertainment comedy that Susanna Fogel will direct from the script she wrote with David Iserson. Brian Grazer is producing. The pic shoots this summer for release on July 6, 2018.
McKinnon and Kunis will play best friends who unwittingly become entangled in an international conspiracy when one of the women discovers the boyfriend who dumped her actually was a spy. That’s where Heughan comes in. The Scottish actor has established himself in the role of Jamie Fraser in the Starz series Outlander, and this becomes his first big starring role in a Hollywood feature.
The film is being overseen by Lionsgate’s Peter Kang and Geoff Shaevitz and Imagine’s Erica Huggins and Julie Oh, the latter of whom brought in the project. Heughan is repped by Ruth Young at United Agents, UTA, and attorney Steve Warren.
Karen at Outlander Observations shared her lovely find and I just couldn't help but want to continue sharing the awesome news that Outlander has been a trivia answer on Jeopardy. I personally think that is brilliant and I believe shows that Outlander is really getting out there.
Also you should follow Karen over at Outlander Observations. She's really on top of things.
These Northern Inuit puppies will be playing the role of Rollo. Rollo is a wolf hybrid that becomes a beloved member of the Fraser clan through an encounter with Young Ian.
Talk about adorable! Sam and Rik really have competition for cutest now.
This isn't the professional looking video from Starz but a dedicated fan who recorded from TV.
UPDATE: Now the video is TV Guide's upload which they likely got from Starz. Excitement is in the air.
Check out the great pictures from Season 3. I think Jamie has aged pretty well. And if you haven't heard Starz will be debuting their teaser trailer for Season 3 right before The White Princess which premieres on Sunday. I planned to check out the show anyway so bonus. If for any reason you miss the teaser trailer feel free to come back here or check us out at Facebook after the fact because I will make sure it is up for all to see.

We don't know the answer to this yet. Scottish actor James McAnerney posted the below tweet on his Twitter and it has made me curious who we think James will be playing in Season Three. Remember if you've not read the books this is very spoiler-y....
