Starz SHOCKS Outlander Fans at SDCC

It’s San Diego Comic Con time again, that week in the summer that gets all us nerds California dreamin’. Starz took over Ballroom 20 yesterday at with an Outlander panel hosted by Jenna Dewan (who says husband Channing Tatum is, like her, a superfan of the show).

All the mains were there to answer fans’ questions – Caitriona Balfe (Claire), Sam Heughan (Jamie,), Tobias Menzies (Frank Randall/Black Jack Randall), Sophie Skelton (Briana), Richard Rankin (Roger) – as well as Outlander series author Diana Gabaldon, and producers Ronald D. Moore and Maril Davis.


And then a wild Dougal appeared and surprised the whole cast.

But that wasn’t the big surprise that Starz had up its sleeve. No, the shocker that left fans in Ballroom 20 squealing was that the network PREMIERED THE FIRST EPISODE OF SEASON 3 at the close of the panel.

mind blown

Don’t worry; I’m not going to spoil anything for you here. I’m going to hang on for that sweet, sweet September 10th premiere.

But if you’re more of the instant gratification type…
