It has been the most important role of Heughan’s career. However, the fans doubt if it is Heughan’s top priority as well. The star himself said that it is taking longer than expected and a lot has to be covered.

Heughan said,

I think the sheer size of what we’re dealing with now and the sheer numbers of cast and of locations, as well, is a challenge. We’re still shooting in Scotland for America, so that’s a challenge, too.

Even though the cast is facing some troubles, they will find their way through the obstacles. This gives fans some hope that the show may premiere by the end of this year.
