New York Comic-Con 2022 will happen in October, and some details are starting to come out. Will Outlander get a panel at the promotional event?
Details about New York Comic-Con 2022 are coming out. One of those is that Diana Gabaldon is going to be there. It raises the question of whether the cast and showrunners of the series will also attend.
In previous years, we have seen Outlander land a panel. This started with the fourth season, which brought fans an exclusive first-look at the season premiere. We got another panel for Season 5 and then we got a mixed live and virtual panel for Season 6 due to the pandemic. Is it possible that we’ll get another panel at NYCC 2022?
Outlander could get a panel at NYCC 2022
There is a chance that we will get a panel. It would certainly make sense. We just have to look at the reasons for the panels in previous years.
To promote the very first season, we saw a panel at San Diego Comic-Con. This made sense for that year since the first season premiered in August and SDCC takes place in July. From the fourth season, the NYCC panels made better sense for the promotion of the show. Season 4 premiered in November and then Seasons 5 and 6 premiered in February and March respectively.
NYCC is a major promotional event. While the cast and showrunners don’t give away a lot of spoilers, they do tease things to come. They can also take part in autograph signings and photo ops, which further helps to promote the series. The timing is also good for releasing exclusive sneak peeks, whether it’s a full trailer or a clip from the series.
We’ll be sure to keep an eye on things for Season 7. With the possibility of the season premiering in early 2023, an NYCC 2022 panel does make a lot of sense.
