An exciting announcement a month after the season is over, and over a year before the new season airs WHAT COULD THIS DELICIOUS MORSEL BE?
Team Normal Predicts Outlander
Producers Davis and Graphia will admit that they hadn’t actually watched all of season 4 in one fell swoop, but they did recently because someone mentioned that not knowing what actually happens on your show can sometimes be a bad thing?? Who knew??? After quite the Come to Jesus moment where they realize that they have to keep going with the story and the characters they created from the pile of pulp made from the torn pages of a bad translation of Drums of Autumn that they found on fanfiction.net, they can only take season 5 in its most logical direction: hence, Season Five is entitled New Villain Roger F*cks Sh*t Up Purposefully Every Day. No longer Soft Chaotic Good, Roger has to go full blown Lawful Evil Boi, and it takes the entirety of season 5 for Jamie (de-toothed and full on Lawful Neutral Dad at this point) to puzzle it out. – Beth
Executive producers Maril Davis and Toni Graphia will be announcing that for Season 5, the production will move to North Carolina! The second part of the announcement will be…drum roll…there will be no Season 6, because of the costs associated with moving an ENTIRE studio/on location production to a different continent! Not to mention the fact that Outlander created tons of jobs and helped build an entire facility. But so many people complained that Jamie and Claire didn’t look sweaty enough to be in actual Appalachia that it will be worth it to move a massive period show to the ACTUAL woods of North Carolina. It’s all about accuracy, here, people – remember the bench? – Elise
In a perfect world this announcement would be something we all actually care about and want, like more episodes next season (SO! MUCH! RIDGESHIT!), or Sam and Cait being promoted to Executive Producers. Or hell, even an acknowledgement that maaaaybe changing the birth scene was “ill-advised.” But this isn’t a perfect world. This is Outlander. So my money is on something entirely unexciting like….they’ve cast Adso, Claire’s cat from The Fiery Cross. Quick! Someone make him a twitter account! Now if someone could please point me back in the direction of Droughtlander, I need to forget this show exists for a while-Janna
I’d bet one of Roger’s ill-gained gemstones that they’re announcing the new costume designer for season five. I, for one, can’t wait to see the hand-stitched embroidery on Jem’s nappies at the gathering. -Heidi
I bet it’s about that special line of Hot Topic Outlander lingerie, and they’re just too dumb to realize it was already announced. – Bekah
Can we get what we all want and dream that they announce season four is getting a do-over? – Julie
