If you’re missing the Outlander conventions throughout the year, there’s some good news. Wizard World is bringing virtual conventions for free.

For those who are missing seeing the stars, there’s some good news. Wizard World, one of the biggest convention companies within the United States, has found a way to bring the Outlander conventions to you. And you can access the basics for absolutely nothing.

It all starts on Thursday, April 30. Yes, that’s tomorrow! Fans will get a chance to experience the first season with stars Stephen Walters, Grant O’Rourke, Nell Hudson, Annette Badland, Steven Cree, and Lotte Verbeek taking to the virtual stage.

On Tuesday, May 5, it’s time for Outlander Seasons 3 to 5 coverage. Richard Rankin, Duncan Lacroix, Ed Speleers, John Bell, Colin McFarlane, Tim Downie, and Kyle Rees will be there virtually to say hello and answer questions.

Some of these stars are hard to meet. Those at Sasnak City know that Rankin and Cree had to cancel their appearances because of filming. There’s no excuse for them this time since, well, there’s no filming taking place!

You don’t need to be in the United States to experience these online events. Just tune in via YouTube, Facebook, or Twitch and you’ll be able to watch the 45-minute panels from anywhere in the world. And you don’t have to pay a penny. You can also send your questions via the chat.

There are some extras if you do want to pay for them. You can get a personal and exclusive two-minute live video with your favorite celebrity, purchase a recorded video from yoru favorite star, or purchase an autograph. You can find out more at the official Wizard World website.

I’ll admit that it’s not quite the same as an Outlander convention. One of the great things about cons is getting to meet other likeminded fans. I’ve made a lot of great friends at conventions in the past and I love connecting with people. However, this is better than nothing at all. Plus, with the events of recent Outlander episodes, there are going to be a lot of interesting things that the likes of Rankin, Lacroix, Speleers, and Bell can talk about!

Next. 5 best moments from Outlander Season 5, Episode 10. dark
