Outlander: Diana Gabaldon was not informed of the prequel series

Writer Diana Gabaldon shared a Facebook post revealing that she had not been informed of the development of the Outlander: Blood of My Blood prequel series.

Diana Gabaldon shared a post on Facebook in which he expressed his perplexity after the announcement of the prequel series from Outlander. The writer has in fact revealed that she has not been informed of the developments regarding the project.

In February Diana Gabaldon revealed that she was working on an Outlander prequel novel dedicated to the story of Brian and Ellen, the parents of Jamie Fraser.
STARZ, apparently, however, did not inform her of the intention to adapt the work into a TV series.

Following the release of news regarding the development of Outlander: Blood of My Blood, Diana Gabaldon used her social media account to clarify: “This is interesting … I would like to point out that I have no idea what Consulting Producer means, and no one has ever told me about it. That’s not to say that I won’t be involved in the show, but I don’t currently have any details about it“.
The writer then reiterated: “Yes, I’m writing the Brian and Ellen story. I have no idea what the timeline of the series might be or how the showrunners plan to use the book (as far as it exists so far). ‘In development’ isn’t the same as getting the green light, it just means they’re putting the pieces together. I’m only saying it here because Starz announced it on Twitter and Facebook, so I figured everyone wants to know something“.

Matthew B. Roberts is writing Outlander: Blood of My Blood and will serve as showrunner and executive producer. He is also the showrunner and executive producer of Outlander, currently in production in its seventh season. Maril Davis will also executive produce the prequel alongside Ronald D. Moore, who developed Outlander for television, under their production label Tall Ship Productions. Story Mining & Supply Company participate in the production with Diana Gabaldon as a consulting producer.
