Fans will be excited to learn that Frank Randall will be included in some capacity in the coming season of Outlander. In an interview during Comic-Con with costar Sam Heughan, Caitriona Balfe told Access Hollywood that she had done a scene with Tobias Menzies, who plays Randall, for the new season, and it included a time jump to the 1940s.

"We did some stuff back in the '40s and it's beautiful. Ron [D. Moore] wrote that stuff, and yeah, I think Tobias and I just really - I don't think either of us felt that we'd had such great material … It's just fantastic. It's fantastic stuff to play."
"It was great to play some of that Frank and Claire stuff again. I always enjoy it. It's just very different... It's a very different relationship than Claire and Jamie have, and it was great scenes. It's nice not to be around the perilous Black Jack Randall, for sure."
"Probably Mother Hildegard because she's very familiar to all of the book readers and all they already love her to start with, so they'll be especially excited to see her and to see how well she's brough to the scene... She's just fabulous."

Season 2 of Outlander is expected to premiere in 2016.
