“We have some amazing actors that have come along. I don’t know what we can say. We usually get a list of “Don’t say this and don’t say that” but no one said anything. Maybe we can say everything right now,” Balfe said.
“What we can say is that there will definitely be a conclusion to some of this, some of these threads will have been tied from the beginning. And then there will be a lot of new characters joining who will be very significant to the series.”
