New Interview with Ron D. Moore from The Hollywood Reporter   2 comments


From THR:

Executive producer Ron D. Moore explains why he made that huge, structural change from the page to the screen in the season two premiere.

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Saturday’s season two premiere of Outlander, “Through a Glass, Darkly,” and the book it is based on, Dragonfly In Amber.]

Spoilers after the jump!

Outlander season two started off with a bang Saturday as showrunner Ron D. Moore completely changed the way the series began from its source material, Dragonfly In Amber.

Book readers were well aware that the beginning of season two would take place in an entirely new time, as author Diana Gabaldon’s second novel opens with Claire (Caitriona Balfe) in 1968 — 20 years after having returned to her own time and reuniting with her first husband Frank (Tobias Menzies). The story picks up after Frank’s death, with Claire finally telling her adult daughter Brianna (Sophie Skelton) that her real father was Jamie (Sam Hueghan).

But the Starz drama instead picked up when Claire first returned to her own time, depicting her first few days reuniting with Frank. It marked a major detour from the novel as the action completely jumped over Claire and Jamie’s time in France as well as the failed Scottish rebellion.
