‘Outlander’ Returns to San Diego Comic-Con in 2017

While you probably still don’t know if you’re attending San Diego Comic-Con this summer, we’ve got our first official confirmation of a TV show that will be in attendance.

Today, in a joint press release from Starz and Sony, Outlander was confirmed that its 13-episode third season will premiere in September – and that fans will first get a chance to get hyped for the upcoming season at San Diego Comic-Con 2017 where they’ll be “offering fans a chance to experience more of this beloved series in person”.

Outlander skipped out on last year’s convention due to production schedules, so fans of the series should be excited to see the series return this year.

In 2015 – the last time the series appeared at San Diego Comic-Con – stars Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan were in attendance, as well as executive producers Ronald D. Moore and Maril Davis, and author Diana Gabaldon. While no further details are available yet for 2017, we’d expect a similar turnout – especially with Gabaldon already hinting on Twitter that she’ll be there.

Are you excited that Outlander will be back at Comic-Con? What TV show are you hoping gets announced yet?

    Hopefully Tobias Menzies will attend too. And not only with Outlander, but with The Terror too.

    I would love to go, but how much does it cost to be there? This is about as close as I’m going to get since I live in Central California. I do need to know the costs.

    I live in the U.K but will be awaiting the video clips of the event & all the coverage as they are usually so good. Series 3 seems so far away now but I’m sure it’s going to be worth the wait.

    I love to go from Australia. How do I get tickets and the cost. I want to see Sam, Catriona, Diana, etc and have photos taken with them
