OUTLANDER panel at NY Comic Con Oct. 6



STARZ announced yesterday that the OUTLANDER panel at NY Comic Con will take place on Oct. 6 at 5:30 pm.

The panel will include Ronald D. Moore, Maril Davis, Sam Heughan, Caitriona Balfe, Richard Rankin, and Sophie Skelton.

Diana Gabaldon will not be attending. Apparently she wasn't invited, although she's attended these events every year since the series began in 2014.


It does seem pretty rude that they didn't even let her know she wouldn't be included on this year's panel.

Have they lost sight of the fact that without Diana Gabaldon, there would be no OUTLANDER, books or show?

UPDATE 8/23/2018 7:10 pm: Here's a follow-up tweet from Diana Gabaldon:

I'm sure there will be a video of this panel, for those of us who can't be there in person.

To not invite Diana Gabaldon to the Outlander event in NYC in October is really bad form on the part of Starz, Tall Ship Productions, Ronald D. Moore, Maril Davis - the lot of them. Truly don't understand the thinking behind this. And, to add to the insult Diana had to find out when Starz PR posted the event to the world. Shame on them.
