Outlander creators have revealed that author Diana Gabaldon will play a hand in bringing the prequel series to reality.
The next show, Blood of My Blood, will tell the narrative of Outlander protagonist Jamie Fraser's (Sam Heughan) parents.
When the series was announced earlier this month, Gabaldon, the author of the books on which the universe is based,
stated that she had not been invited to be a consulting producer on the show, despite being mentioned as one in the announcement.
"Well... THIS is interesting," she began her comment last week on her official Facebook page.
"Please keep in mind that I have no idea what a 'Consulting Producer' is, and no one has ever approached me about becoming one."
This does not mean that I will not be involved with the show; but, I have no details at this time."
Now, the broadcast network Starz has confirmed that Gabaldon will appear in the show.
