Outlander' Was Supposed to Be a TV Movie, EP Says

Outlander creator Diana Gabaldon has revealed the reason she told Sam Heughan, who plays Jamie Fraser, how the eighth and final season ends, but not his co-star Caitriona Balfe, who plays his wife Claire.Diana has previously disclosed that she had shared the ending with the leading man, which led a fan to enquire as to why on Twitter.

"Sam knows the ending, but why didn't you tell Caitriona?" they asked.In response the best-selling author wrote: "There was no reason to. There was a reason Ron and Sam should have known."

Diana penned the novels upon which the drama is based, but with 10 books and only eight seasons of Outlander it would appear that the ending will be somewhat condensedThe currentseason seven has already started escalating the pace of the storytelling with the first four episodes of current series the conclusion of book six.The sixth book A Breath of Snow and Ashes, was initially given a 12-episode order, but delays caused by COVID scaled it back to eight.
