For these on Fraser’s Ridge, a pleasant lengthy interval of nothing significantly thrilling taking place would most likely be welcome, however the future is unclear for one fan-favorite: Lord John Grey. Performed by David Berry, John left the American colonies forward of the Outlander Season 5 finale, with no signal that he’ll be again on TV any time too quickly… until, in fact, he lastly will get his spinoff.
Lord John Grey is a well-liked character regardless of the less-than-ideal circumstances wherein he turned a key Outlander participant.

With Outlander completed for Season 5 and a protracted Droughtlander on the way in which, information of a Lord John sequence on Starz would undoubtedly be welcome to many followers.
Outlander showrunner Matthew B. Roberts weighed in to Deadline on the opportunity of a by-product:
It’s an ongoing dialogue, however nothing is about in stone as of but. It’s wonderful how the fervour of the viewers for these characters and this story has grown over the seasons; we might like to discover a technique to proceed to reward the loyalty of our followers.
The excellent news? Discussions are taking place about an Outlander spinoff, and the Outlander staff is open to rewarding loyal followers with one other sequence. The dangerous information is clearly that nothing has been set in stone, which is especially unlucky contemplating David Berry’s latest feedback.

One by no means is aware of the place Lord John Grey may flip up subsequent.
The showrunner’s touch upon a possible Lord John spinoff is hardly affirmation by hook or by crook, however no less than nothing has been dominated out! John has managed to point out up at a few of the impossible locations all through the years on Outlander, and he’ll all the time have a connection to the Fraser household due to his elevating of younger William.
Even when William can by no means know that Jamie is his organic father and Brianna is his sister, John has gone the additional mile to maintain Jamie up to date on his life. He and Jamie have a detailed bond, he was there for Bree when she desperately wanted his assist, and he is even on good phrases with Claire regardless of some earlier awkwardness when Claire realized they had been each in love with the identical man.
Whether or not or not John will get his spinoff, he has ties to the key characters of Outlander that may hopefully convey him again in some unspecified time in the future within the sequence. The coming revolution complicates issues, and John presumably cannot go away William at Helwater earlier than William learns the ropes of being an earl, so a by-product may convey him again to TV ahead of he might ever realistically flip up at Fraser’s Ridge once more.
