'Outlander' Season 2 Spoilers, Release Date: EP Teased Policital Episodes, Sad About Golden Globe Awards Snub
"Outlander" Season 2 will be delayed for release and fans are more eager to hear more about the upcoming show. With that, executive producer Ronaldo Moore assures fans that the next season will be even better than the previous season.
"It's bigger and different. Season 1 was primarily in Scotland so it was Scottish castles, stone walls, heavy wood, more of a rustic world. Now we've traveled to 18th Century Paris, which was the most populous, most sophisticated city in the world at the time," Moore told The Wrap when asked about the second season of Outlander.
Moore also hinted about the missions and adventures of Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe), who are the lead couple of the STARZ TV series.
"Claire and Jamie are plotting a conspiracy to stop the Jacobite rebellion, so it's a more political show, more historical currents of the time, we look at aristocracy, the court of Louis XV, so visually it's a whole different palette," he said. "It's fattening and gilt and candelabras, just a more rich world. And it's more French and you're dealing with historical figures for the first time."
Moore also added that the performance of Heughan in the next season of the "Outlander" is even more impressive.
“He has a much bigger part in the second season. If you think of the arc of his character in this first season, it was a much slower build,” said Moore. “It was really Claire’s story, which included certain issues and characters along the way. He certainly has a lot more material in the second season than in the first.”
"Outlander" recently had three nominations for the Golden Globe Awards for Best Television Series - Drama, Best Actress-Television Series Drama for Balfe, and Best Supporting Actor - Series, Miniseries or Television Film for Tobias Menzies who played last season's villain Jonathan "Black Jack" Randall, Franchise Herald reported.
Even if Heughan did not receive recognition from the Golden Globe Awards, Moore still believes that Heughan deserved one because Sam Heughan, Caitriona Balfe and Tobias Menzies come as a package."
"He was a huge part of the success of the show. We've always thought of him, Cait, and Tobias as our big three," Moore said according to Entertainment Weekly. "It's just a very competitive year, a very tough field. I wish Sam was included, but in our hearts he absolutely is because he's incredibly deserving."
"Outlander" Season 2 will be released next year on March or April.
