Outlander fans cannot wait for the popular fantasy drama to return with its second season. But even though it's going to be a long wait (season 2 is expected to premiere in 2016), the cast and crew of the Starz series are making sure they keep the buzz going by giving regular updates and teasers related to the next season.
Talking about Outlander season 2 in an interview with Deadline, executive producer Ron Moore shed some light on the team plans to adapt the storyline for the new episodes based on the corresponding book in the Outlander series.
"The general plan is probably to try to do a book a season," Moore told Deadline. "Some of the books are bigger than others so we've definitely had conversations about, 'well, you know, at some point we made need to split a book into two seasons', but right now we're not there yet so the plan is to do 'Dragonfly In Amber' [second book in the Outlander series of novels by Diana Gabaldon] for Season 2."
Moore also added that book two is more complex than book one, so it will need to be adapted in a different way for TV - which means fans who have already read the books, might be in for some surprises. "There will be twists and turns that aren't in the book," Moore said.
Meanwhile, the show's lead actor Sam Heughan also spoke about the upcoming season recently and teased the nature of his and Claire's relationship post the shocking events that played out in the season 1 finale.
"...It's more of a mental fight and a psychological one [for Jamie]," Heughan told E! News. "But what happens in France is they have to team together for the greater good, and ultimately it will make their relationship a lot stronger."
"There's the new responsibility that Claire's now pregnant so she has that going on and Jamie has this mental side, and he's got to get over that. And obviously they have to fight even harder to get together, but it's not about escaping the British or escaping Wentworth."
