Both good and bad news today for Outlander fans. Starz announced this morning that Outlander will be attending New York Comic-Con on Saturday, October 6, 2018. Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan, Sophie Skelton, and Richard Rankin will all be in attendance at the Outlander panel at NYCC. If you would like to attend NYCC, please visit their website for all the details.
With this news, it has also been confirmed that Outlander will be skipping San Diego Comic-Con this year. This is not the first time Outlander has not had an official presence at SDCC; 2016 was the first SDCC Droughtlander. If you are attending SDCC just because of Outlander, please still go! There is so much to do and see, and there is that great Outlander fan panel happening. (Plus badges are not refundable or transferable.)
Numerous outlets, including NYCC, are reporting that this will be Outlander‘s first time at NYCC. That is incorrect as the first glimpse of Outlander came from NYCC as Ronald D. Moore and Diana Gabaldon had a small panel, there was an Outlander area on the con floor with production design models and a page of the first episode’s script, and Starz hosted a party for a number of fans that same weekend. Our own writer, Johanna, was representing this site at NYCC that year. You can read all about Outlander‘s first foray into comic conventions by clicking here, here, and here.
