Super exciting news on the Con front. Outlander will be in attendance at the Wizard World Chicago, August 23-26. And if that wasn't exciting enough there will be an awesome photo experience.
Apparently a replica prop company, Experience Entertainment, will be bringing a complete Outlander fan experience and attendees will be able to have your photos with cast member at Craigh na Dun! This will be at an extra cost but talk about FANtastic.
Mark your calendar's Outlander fans because Cait, Sam, Sophie and Richard will all be in attendance at NYCC. And I'm going to bet because it is a month (or so) shy of the return of Outlander to our TVs that there will be some big stuff happening at this Con.
I wouldn't be surprised if they showed attendees the first episode of the season. I'm so jealous.
Even though this is great news, know that Outlander will not be at SDCC this year. Outlander typically is in attendance but because of scheduling and probably the amount of time between SDCC and November they just won't be there.
Remember that long hiatus the cast will be on? Looks like it is so we can see our actors in new material. Well maybe that isn't the only reason but it will be great to see them do more. Hopefully, this will also find them new fans who want to watch Outlander. Up the ratings!
Now the details... Caitriona will be joining A Quiet Place breakout actor Noah Jupe, Christian Bale, and Matt Damon in Fox's untiled Ford vs. Ferrari movie.
Last week, news broke that Outlander was renewed for an additional 2 seasons meaning not only will we be getting the promised Season 4 but 5 & 6 as well.
But word is that Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan will be taking a slightly longer, and much deserved, break than usual before returning to Season 5. According to Caitriona, they'll be getting about 7 months off which sounds like it will mean a bigger droughtlander after Season 4.
While, none of the fans want a massive droughlander, I think most of us can concede that Cait and Sam deserve the time off to rest or even to work on other projects which will help further their careers. After all if they can't do other work, will they want to keep renewing their contracts on Outlander?
