EXISTING CHARACTERS

NEW CHARACTERS

“When Jamie and Claire pay Jamie’s Aunt Jocasta (Maria Doyle Kennedy, Orphan Black) visit, she is over-joyed to reunite with her nephew and have kin near her again. For the past two years, she’s had the herculean task of managing her plantation, River Run on her own, after her husband Hector passed away. Jocasta takes great pride in what she and Hector built together, believing that she is a benevolent mistress. While Jocasta’s eyesight has weakened, her wit and intelligence are as sharp as ever. She possesses a cunning ability to manipulate others, subtly bending them to her will — a MacKenzie trait that she shares with her brothers’, Dougal and Colum, who also have a history of exploiting their nephew Jamie when it suited their interests.”

“Stephen Bonnet (Ed Speleers, Downton Abbey and Eragon) has not had an easy life; circumstances have shaped the twisted code that he lives by — using his charisma and charm to lull others’ into dropping their defenses, allowing him to take advantage of kindness and mercy, yet never repaying it in kind. He is a remorseless opportunist who always puts his needs and desires first. As a smuggler and thief, Bonnet has managed to create quite the reputation for himself in the New World and as a result is wanted by the authorities. But when his path crosses with the Frasers, they see a man similar to Jamie and others’ like him — someone who is being unfairly pursued by the Crown. When Bonnet manages to enlist Jamie and Claire’s help, their fates become intertwined for better and for worse.”

“Ulysses (Colin McFarlane, The Dark Knight) is the head of the household at Jocasta Cameron’s prosperous plantation, River Run. He handles the many details of day-to-day life at River Run with a deft hand. He’s smart, kind and capable of much more than the color of his skin affords him. Since his Mistress, Jocasta is virtually blind Ulysses acts as her eyes — informing her of what she cannot see, both in her presence and when she is not around, keeping her apprised of everything that goes on inside of River Run’s walls. Ulysses is steadfast in his loyalty to Jocasta. The years he’s spent with her have enable him to anticipate her every move and whim. While he thoroughly knows his Mistress’s feelings and thoughts, he manages to keep his locked deep within.”

“Phaedre (Natalie Simpson, Royal Shakespeare Company stage actress) is the personal maid and seamstress for Jocasta Cameron. She has a kind heart and mischievous sense of humor and is a trusted member of the River Run household.”

Outander will return to Starz on Sunday, November 4 at 8 PM.

The news has been floating around the internet for a few weeks that Veronica Mars would be coming back for a fourth season on Hulu.

Well, the official news broke today that Season 4 of Veronica Mars will air in summer 2019 on the streaming service!

Let’s get excited, Marshmellows!!!!

First of all, check out this video message from our leader Kristen Bell.

Next, here are the details from Hulu in their new deal with Warner Bros. Television Group:

• 8 episodes, direct-to-series order, slated for summer of 2019
• Fans can stream seasons 1, 2 and 3 as well as the 2014 feature film beginning in summer 2019
• Series creator Rob Thomas will write the first episode
• The season 4 synopsis is: “Spring breakers are getting murdered in Neptune, thereby decimating the seaside town’s lifeblood tourist industry. After Mars Investigations is hired by the parents of one of the victims to find their son’s killer, Veronica is drawn into an epic eight-episode mystery that pits the enclave’s wealthy elites, who would rather put an end to the month-long bacchanalia, against a working class that relies on the cash influx that comes with being the West Coast’s answer to Daytona Beach.”

Series creator Rob Thomas took to Twitter this afternoon, letting fans know that season 4 will be set against a Spring Break backdrop like the Veronica Mars book The Thousand Dollar Tan Line, BUT that is NOT the story they will be telling. He shared, “We’re five years after the movie. Books are 98% canon. Pony is included. Marcia Langdon is police chief. Spoiler: Neptune (is) finally incorporated.

Again, let’s get excited, Marshmellows!!!!
