Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin may not agree with every change the HBO adaptation makes, but that wouldn’t push him so far as too root for an Outlander Emmy over his own series, would it? The author claims “Outlander was robbed” at this week’s Emmy nominations, even if certain Game of Thrones stars finally got their due.
Starz has found plenty of success through the first two seasons adapting Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander, and there’s much more Claire and Jamie to go around. Midway through Season 2, Starz has confirmed that Outlander will turn for “Books” 3 and 4, thanks to a two-season renewal.
More and more TV shows each year make it impossible to keep up with everything, even as choice Sunday real estate goes to conversation-starters like Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead. Well, get ready to not talk about the big Starz shows on Monday, now that the cable outlet will switch to Sunday premieres, from its usual Saturday.
TV viewers and Black Sails fans, you finally have something in common. Starz will join the ranks of TV channels offering their services to stream independent of any cable package, even tossing in the Outlander Season 2 premiere as an incentive.
Outlander fans, your time is nigh. After a criminal wait between the two halves of Season 1, Starz has officially set a Season 2 premiere date for Jaime and Claire’s trip to France in April. Have a look-see with the first trailer and a new poster, and get those tongues a-waggin’, oh dear.
The 2016 Golden Globes have been nothing if not consistent with surprises, and following all the unexpected Mozart in the Jungle love, the Best TV Drama went far more reasonably. USA breakout Mr. Robot is your new winner for 2016's Best TV drama, and deservedly so.
Starz’s Outlander has kept fans waiting long enough for a second season, and may tease a few Sassenachs even longer until its spring 2016 premiere, but at last, some relief is here. Jamie and Claire are headed to France in the first official Season 2 trailer, which itself offers a treasure trove of easter eggs for fans.
Just yesterday, word of a certain Game of Thrones actor’s return for Season 6 gave heavy indication of which long-delayed book plot might make it into the HBO drama’s 2016 run. Now, another familiar face has been observed on the set, seemingly confirming what Jaime and the late Catelyn Stark’s family will be up to in Game of Thrones Season 6.
Starz’s Outlander made a big splash at Comic-Con last year, but will Claire or Jamie be groovy enough to handle what big Bruce brings to the table? We’ll find out at Comic-Con 2015, as Starz takes both Outlander and Ash Vs. Evil Dead to the big show in San Diego. Oh yes, kings will be hailed, on either side.
The most vital piece of television criticism this past week came from The Huffington Post’s Maureen Ryan. In writing about the recent string of ‘Outlander’ episodes, she noted something revolutionary in its storytelling, primarily centered around its catering to the female gaze. It’s an important piece not only for what it uncovers, but also in how both Ryan’s article (and ‘Outlander’ itself) are another piece of the ever-evolving viewpoints that TV can sustain and foster.
