Outlander notes: Sam Heughan appearing on The Tonight Show!

Outlander season 5Monday night’s going to be a big one for Outlander star Sam Heughan, and for all viewers of The Tonight Show. Why? The actor’s going to be paying a visit!

In a series of posts on his Instagram Stories over the past couple of days, the actor has revealed that there is a new project in the works — not only that, but he will hopefully be able to share a little bit more about it in his interview with Jimmy Fallon. Given how quick work on this project was (he posted “that’s a wrap” on Friday), it doesn’t feel like it would be some sort of big-budget movie. (Unless, of course, he’s playing an impactful role that doesn’t require a ton of screen time.) It could also be a gig on a noteworthy TV show, but it seems like regardless, he found a way to fit in something cool before the holidays.

There should be plenty of opportunities for Sam to do some more exciting stuff in the new year, provided of course that the schedule works out in all of the ways that we expect with Outlander season 6. We know that new episodes there are not starting until February 16, and other than promoting that and the new movie Bloodshot, he should have a good few weeks in there to pursue some other things. Note that there is no official start date for season 6 just yet — a part of it depends on when the scripts are ready, but a reasonable estimate is at some point this coming spring. We’re sure that Starz would want to launch the season within the first few months of 2020, but all of the dates that we’ve got at the moment are tentative at best.

Regardless of whatever Sam is doing next, we have a feeling that it will be exciting! One of the things that we’re sure he is out to do during his breaks is challenge himself and find roles that are very different than any he’s played before.
