Fans of Outlander, rejoice! After a great deal of waiting, the season 2 Comic-Con preview panel took place at 4:00 p.m. Pacific time on Saturday. Joining executive producers Maril Davis and Ronald D. Moore at the event were stars Caitriona Balfe (Claire) and Sam Heughan (Jamie), and then also series author Diana Gabaldon. The panel was held at Ballroom 20; while it isn’t as large as the cavernous Hall H, it is one of the largest venues that the San Diego Convention Center has to offer.
On Outlander last season, Jamie and Claire discovered they were to become parents. At Comic-Con today, the actors talked about how that is working out on set.

Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) are expectant parents in season 2. On top of that, they end up unofficially adopting a French orphan named Fergus.

Season 1 was largely about a courtship, while season 2 is about becoming a parent in the time of political upheaval.
