Outlander TV Series News

Jamie-Claire-TV-STARZWhat’s going on in the making of the new Outlander TV series from Starz? What’s the history of it, as seen through articles in the media?

Exciting news! The Outlander TV series was nominated for a Golden Globe in the "Best Television Series – Drama" category. In addition, Catriona Balfe was nominated for Best "Performance By An Actress In A Television Series – Drama," and Tobias Menzies was nominated for his dual role for "Best Performance By An Actor In A Supporting Role In A Series, Limited Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television."

Plus the "Roger Watch" is over! Starz has cast Scottish actor Richard Rankin (image at right) in the role of Roger Wakefield, Starz announced on Monday, December 14. He will play the grown-up version of Roger, Reverend Wakefield’s adopted son, who appeared early in the novel OUTLANDER, and in season one of the TV series. However, the date for the debut of Season Two is still only referred to as “Spring, 2016.” No specific date has been announced yet by Starz.

Where and How To Watch

2014-07-28-Ron-Diana-NYWhen will the Outlander TV series debut in countries around the world? When will it be available online as streaming video?Is this information listed together anywhere?

Unfortunately, a comprehensive global list of when the OUTLANDER TV series will debut in different countries and areas is difficult, due to the complexities of bringing the series to numerous broadcast areas (which involves complex legal and other issues). For some of this information, check out my Where/How To Watch webpage.

If you have some information to share about the series in your broadcast area or country, such as what cable provider will carry it, you may share it with my Webmistress. Thanks!
