'Outlander' Heads to New York Comic Con 2019 — Find Out How You Can Join In
The social media accounts for the Starz series revealed the news that yes, Outlander will be attending the annual convention and fans will have an opportunity to get up-close and personal with the stars of their favorite show.
Along with the announcement that the show would appear in New York this October, Starz is also implementing a contest giving talented fans the chance to attend by submitting fan art.
"We're excited to announce that not only are we going to #NYCC this year, but that we're bringing one of you with us!" reads the beginning of the announcement. "Submit your original #Outlander art on Twitter using #OutlanderContestNYCC for the chance to have it featured at our talent signing where you will meet the cast."
While the announcement doesn't reveal which members of the cast will be on hand, it's safe to say the show's own Jamie and Claire — Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe — will be among them. Considering the show's absence at this July's San Diego Comic-Con, the reveal isn't all that shocking — the show also opted to attend New York in 2018, prior to the Season 4 release.
We’re excited to announce that not only are we going to #NYCC this year, but that we’re bringing one of you with us!
