It was announced earlier this year that Starz would not be attending San Diego Comic Con 2016 with Outlander. This makes sense as Season 3 is still in the preparation stage and no filming as started. The usual purpose for shows to attend SDCC is to hype up the fans and media, discuss the upcoming season in interviews and panels, and possible show a new teaser clip if not an episode. Since there will be no new information there is no real reason for Starz to participate with ‘Outlander’. Starz will however be participating with ‘American Gods’ as well as ‘Ash vs. The Evil Dead’.
Even though ‘Outlander’ will not be a feature some of the fabulous cast and crew WILL be attending SDCC for other panels and events. This is the master post that we will update as we learn more information of those that will be attending. Here is what we know so far.
Saturday: July 23 -Time: 11:00- 12:00

An effective musical score is a vital component of storytelling and invites the audience to immerse themselves in a fictional narrative.
