The beautiful and talented Laura Donnelly has been cast in the lead of Joss Whedon's new project called "The Nevers."
Described as “an epic science fiction drama about a gang of Victorian women who find themselves with unusual abilities, relentless enemies, and a mission that might change the world,” the series will be written, directed, executive produced and showrun by the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” creator himself.
Donnelly will play Amalia True, “the most reckless, impulsive, emotionally damaged hero of her time. A menace to stuffy Victorian society, she would die for the cause and kill for a drink.”
“Laura Donnelly has charisma, wisdom and an anarchic precision that not only captures Amalia but defines her,” Whedon said in a statement. “She’s fierce and she’s funny — and I need both for the journey ahead.”
I'm highly looking forward to this series and I can't wait to see Laura on something else and in the lead. I can't wait.

Starting May 27, 2019 anyone with a Netflix account will be able to watch seasons 1 & 2 of Outlander. Exciting news for Netflix subscribers but what does this mean for the future of Outlander.
It could mean a couple of things. First, Starz is putting their product out for the masses to bring in more viewers. This is something AMC did with Breaking Bad after it's second season to gain more viewers and it worked. Like Outlander, Breaking Bad was bringing in about a million viewers per episode before hitting Netflix. Season three brought in 10 million plus viewers. So it is possible Starz is looking to gain viewers with this unprecedented release of their content.
Second, they are looking for a new home for Outlander's future. This is one I don't like to think about but should Starz not being willing to commit to more Outlander after the sixth season it is possible they are looking to get Netflix to buy it. I'm hoping Outlander's future is that up in the air but should Netflix buy we all know they are willing to put money into shows. Netflix would be a good home to Outlander but I'm also unwilling to hope for the senario in case Netflix is only in the business of air previously made episodes.
Let's all hope for the best and get everyone who isn't willing to buy into Starz now to watch Outlander on Netflix. Pass the word along.
That's right North Carolinians, Herself will be in your neck of the woods. And she's going to be at historic locations.
Her tour starts at Tryon Palace in New Bern, then skips over to the Paramount Theater in Burlington and ends with a Brunch on the Alamance Battlegrounds. Tickets aren't cheap but the proceeds are fund raising for these historic sites.
May 5 it is for all those interested. This comes after The White Queen and The White Princess. It is strange to me these haven't gotten a over arching name and the season just been the different books. These follow the Tudor book series by Phillipa Gregory as does the movie The Other Boleyn Girl. The Spanish Princess will actually be a combination of the books The Constant Princess and The King's Curse and will tell the story of Catherine of Aragon, Henry VIII's first wife.
If you head over to Amazon you will see they've set the release of all versions of Outlander season 4 for May 28, 2019. I haven't seen a formal announcement of this fact but Amazon is usually pretty reliable with their information. Consider this, they are already taking pre-orders which heavily implies this is the actual release date for season 4.

Honestly, I had no idea what this could mean with the story broke that Starz CEO Chris Albrecht would be stepping down. Albrecht is the reason for the programming currently on Starz and one of the first decisions he made was to get into business with Ronald D. Moore and that is how Outlander was born on Starz.
Lionsgate acquired Starz back in 2016. Lionsgate was after a platform for their content which includes The Hunger Game Series, The Twilight Saga, and Orange Is the New Black. From the gist of Outlander Cast's article it seems the decision to oust Albrecht is really about having control over programming. And it seems Lionsgate isn't keen on things they don't own and as we know Sony owns Outlander.
Does this mean we could lose Outlander? Blake over at Outlander Cast is sure we'll get Season 5 since production has started and we might even get Season 6 because it was promised but they might not be interested in giving us additional Outlander if it isn't a show Lionsgate owns.
This is just a very condensed version of the Outlander Cast article and I highly recommend you go over and read it or listen to their podcast episode about this fiasco.
There are a lot of things that can be assumed about the next season of Outlander but here are a few reminders of things that we know we will be seeing. If you aren't at all worried about spoilers there is a box you can click on to get the book related "things we know" but otherwise I recommend show fan stay away from the spoilers.
1. It is likely going to be based on the fifth book of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series called The Fiery Cross. Of course, we are unsure if we'll get the entire book or part of the book. You may not know this but this is the longest book of the first 5 by nearly 400 pages so it stands to reason we will not be seeing the entire book. Also, the PTBs (powers that be - ie our executive producers) have mentioned it might be easier to break up the books a little. I'm rather keen on this idea as I think it would make things feel less rushed.
2. Both season 5 and 6 will have only 12 episodes each. Season 1 had 16 and 2 through 4 had 13. However, standard season on premium channels tend to be 10 or 12. Outlander has been an exception. Losing an episode does support them taking on portions of book rather than the whole.
