Sam & Cait Share Favorite Moments + Season 2 & Casting  
Sam and Cait tells us their favorite moments from Season 1. I loved Sam's too. I found the season closing to be quite beautiful.

Season Two
According to Ron Moore, the second season is going to deviate from the books a little more and there will be a clear devision in the story...
"There will be twists and turns that aren't in the book. The second book ['Dragonfly in Amber'] is more complex than the first book is. It's a little tougher challenge to adapt it," Moore told Deadline. "It takes place in France and it deals with the Jacobite Rebellion. It's much more political, it weaves in and out of actual historical events. There's more complexity, just in terms of how Diana structured the story in Paris, in particular, as Jamie and Claire try to change history."

He goes onto say in another article that half of the season will be Jamie and Claire in France with the political intrigue and the other half will be set in Scotland in an attempt to thwart history.

But when will the Second Season air? According to Ron Moore it will be in 2016 but let's do the math...
Nerd Report: When will season two air?

Ron Moore: I don’t think we have an air date yet. We’ll start shooting season two in May. We’ll be shooting in Scotland until around February and I assume we’ll be on the air sometime in 2016.

According to Ron they will likely wrap filming in February so all that hope for an April air date are likely sunk as that will give them only a month to two months for editing and final cuts. I think we are looking more towards Summer. Update: Upon thinking about this it is possible we could start the first half of the show earlier in 2016 much like we did with the first season. Guess we'll have to wait to find out.

What about Casting? All the book fans want to know about two specific characters: Brianna and Roger. If you aren't a book fan, I wouldn't suggest looking them up unless you want spoilers. But for the fans out there who read the books. There is no word yet about who will play these highly anticipated characters.
"I know that the two cast members everybody asks about – Brianna and Roger – have not been cast," he said. "And there's no hurry on it because the way we shoot these things obviously is out of sequence and we shoot them according to the needs of production and air date. … People are like, 'Haven’t you cast those?' And it's like, 'Well, no, but don't worry about it.'"

But there is some news. Two members of the Season Two cast have been set in the media mill. Stanley Weber and Robert Cavanagh have joined the cast.

Cavanah will be playing Jared Fraser, that cousin Murtagh talked about in the season finale. Jared Fraser is a merchant in France who Jamie and Claire will be living with while Jamie oversees Jared's business while Jared travels.

Weber will be playing Le Comte St. Germain, a member of the French Court who is rumored to be working with the occult and instantly takes a dislike to Claire.

On top of that Starz has released some pictures of the filming of Season Two.

i would love it if they would cast Karen Gillan as Brianna. She's tall, a natural redhead, Scottish (from Inverness), has good experience, but isn't well-known...at least not in the US. She's gorgeous and all they would need to do is have her wear blue contacts.

I think it would be an excellent idea. I did read somewhere speculations about Brianna and a couple of actresses there are rumors about but I haven't found them again. I don't know how reliable they were but it would be nice to talk about.

I don't even know if I'd mind that she didn't have the blue eyes as long as she really looked like she could be Jamie's child.

April, wow. Will be a long wait.

Not crazy about more Frank, but if it's well written it might work.

New casting looks good. I hadn't pictured St. Germain quite so handsome.
I thought they'd already cast Brianna?

I updated the above post to include some idea other fans have speculated on which would be that it is possible if they cut the second season in half, much like they did with the first, we could have an earlier 2016 air date. Problem is it is all speculation. I suspect we won't hear more until Comic Con or Christmas time.

Not according to Ron. It is possible he's hiding the news but I think a lot of the rumors about Brianna are just that... rumors.

Guess we'll just have to wait patiently then.
So far the casting news has been interesting. :)
Jill aka Josireesanwar on June 24th, 2015 09:26 pm (UTC)
It has. I'm hoping there is word about Brianna and Roger soon.
Kaylee Winchester: Outlander The Frasersroguem on July 5th, 2015 12:45 pm (UTC)
I'm suspecting they'll be announced last.
Jill aka Josireesanwar on July 9th, 2015 07:59 pm (UTC)
Rumors are they are going to announce them this weekend at Comic Con. We'll see.
