Roberts also told fans that the cast and crew expect to "wrap up filming in early part of 2016".
This week we told you that Outlander season two filming had taken place in Pollok Country Park in Glasgow .
The park in Glasgow has joined the growing list of Scottish locations used for filming the hit TV series as it was turned into a 1700s-themed set.
The next second season of Outlander, which is based on Diana Gabaldon 's novel Dragonfly in Amber, will see Jamie and Claire Fraser continue their story in France following their
traumatic encounter with Black Jack Randall.
And although much of the second book is based in France, the majority of the action still takes place in Scotland – much to the delight of tourism bosses.
From Linlithgow Palace to Tibbermore Church , Scotland provided the perfect backdrop for the first season of Outlander.
The hit show was filmed across various locations in Scotland, including a one-month stint at Doune Castle .
