Outlander TV Series to begin filming this Autumn

It has been officially announced ... by Diana no less ... that she has signed the contract for the TV series and filming will be starting in September with a view to seeing it on your TV screens by the Spring of 2014!  The series is going to be sixteen episodes long but as of yet the casting choices are being kept under wraps. I'm assuming that they already have the main characters cast in the roles but honestly I really wish they would put us out of our misery!

This is the news I have been waiting for for such a long time and guess what? I'm suddenly really really scared in case it's terrible and I hate it.  The filming is starting this Autumn in Scotland which is really really exciting and if my kids weren't of school age I would be applying to be an extra!

Oh, wow! This is good news, and I also know what you mean about it being a little scary. I'm gonna try really hard not to get my hopes up too high.

The books are almost always superior to the movies/series anyway. I'm gonna think of this series as just more icing on the cake! Even if it ended up horrible, nothing can take away from the beauty of the books and characters.

This isn't an HBO series, it's Starz. Big difference.
