STARZ will be broadcasting the story in the US. Many international channels have also bought the rights, including Showcase in Canada and SoHoTV in Australia.
Most of us would agree that the casting has been phenomenal so far. Of course, the production team can’t please everyone, but after the initial shock of the introductions was over, I think the majority of fans can see at least a little bit of “their” characters in the TV cast. Let’s take a look at some of the major players, shall we?

Ron Moore of Tall Ship Productions sold the idea to Starz, and is heading up the production. A huge creative force responsible behind shows in the Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica franchises, we’re lucky to have a man of such grand vision in charge of our beloved story!
And, of course, it wouldn’t be Outlander without Diana Gabaldon! She’s pictured here in the makeup chair, getting ready for her TV debut, a small part and a line or two in the episode featuring The Gathering.
And finally, a sigh-worthy pic of our favourite couple…aren’t you just bursting with excitement?!
