We’ve talked a little bit already about what Outlander and Starz are planning for San Diego Comic-Con this year, and now, we’ve had a chance to learn a little bit more!
If you’re at the convention at some point between now and Sunday at 5:00 p.m. Pacific time (otherwise known as the end of the convention), be sure to go by the booth to partake in a little bit of fun with an interactive photo booth. It’s more than just getting your picture taken in front of a background of the famous standing stones — you can create practically your own personal gif in front of them! Starz is working with Hypno in order to produce some of these interactive photos from the booth this year — you can actually check out a whole feast of them by heading over to the link here. Outlander isn’t the only Starz show getting this treatment, as you can also take photos in front of American Gods and also The Rook. For now, Outlander does appear to be the most popular, which isn’t much of a surprise given its past convention presence. (Also, The Rook has only been on the air for a few weeks, even though we’re loving what we’re seeing so far.)

It was a smart move for Outlander to be able to have an official convention presence, especially something cool like this that fans of the show can post on social media and share around. It may not be the same as a cast panel, but it keeps the show in the conversation and at the forefront of everyone’s minds. Remember that later today there is a fan panel, if you want to attend that — get some more information over here.
While the festivities are going down in San Diego, Outlander season 5 is going to be premiering on Starz most likely in 2020 — production is happening in Scotland, and that plus the later premiere date are the two reasons why the cast wasn’t flown out. It’s harder from a promotional angle to put money into a panel when your show isn’t coming out for at least another six months or so, if not longer.
