Outlander notes: Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan preview and more

Outlander season 6Welcome to our Friday edition of Outlander notes! We’ve got a couple of different things to talk about here, and they revolve around our two leads in Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe.

Let’s go ahead and kick things off with this — a reminder that the two are going to be front and center for the show’s Summer Series over the weekend. This episode will air on Facebook and YouTube on Sunday at 10:00 a.m. Pacific time, and hopefully this will give us a chance to get some updates on the two actors, and then also potentially season 6 at the same time! We know that filming could begin at some point in the upcoming months, but there’s no official start date as of yet.

The Outlander Summer Series has overall been rather fun. It’s served as a great opportunity to get to know several aspects of making the show a little bit better, and we’re hoping that this is something that the studio Sony and Starz will consider doing for some hiatuses in the future. This one does help to make this extended Droughtlander a little bit easier.

To go along with this, we do also have some more news on Caitriona Balfe — it’s her anniversary! Or, to be specific, her anniversary of being cast as Claire. That’s something she celebrated in a post on Twitter today — she’s been beyond extraordinary in this role, and it’s hard to imagine anyone else bringing the humanity, the determination, and the power to this role. To think, we’re coming off of what may be most emotional episode yet in the season 5 finale.

What do you want to see when it comes to Outlander moving forward?
