OUTLANDER Will Skip San Diego’s Comic-Con 2016

Outlander will skip this years Comic-Con due to availability of the cast and crew.

As the event of all events for fans approaches, we all eagerly await to know who will be attending this years San Diego Comic-Con. One show we are sad to hear about that won’t make a presence is STARZ network show Outlander.

As it has been confirmed by Diana Gabaldon, author of the novels that began the TV series, and executive producer Maril Davis, the show will not be present due to schedule availability of the cast and crew.

Another reason for this could be that the shows finale is set to premiere little before Comic-Con takes place. Though it hasn’t yet been picked up for a third season, and assuming that it does get granted the green light, filming wouldn’t have started by this time. Thus, there wouldn’t be anything to present for the new season.

Though Outlander is a big runner for the network, STARZ won’t be absent from the event.

The network has the upcoming American Gods series from Bryan Fuller (based on the Neil Gaiman book) that’s likely to get a big push, and we could also see a return of Ash vs Evil Dead. AlthoughBlack Sails premiered at San Diego Comic-Con back in 2013, it hasn’t held a panel since – though cast members did appear for autograph signings in Sails last year – so the return of that series seems like more of a stretch.

Watch new episodes of Outlander Saturdays at 9pm on STARZ.
