Missing Outlander? Have Some More! End of Summer Series Coming

If you weren’t sure how you were going to get through the unbearable months until Outlander starts up again – whenever that will be – Sony and Starz hear you! They’ll be giving us four weeks of extra material – videos, conversations, and sneak peeks at the Outlander Untold features that will be part of the BluRay release of Season 5! (Edited 6 PM 8/20 to add new info!)

Starting this Sunday, August 23, Starz will release material every week for four weeks, leading up to the Season 5 DVD/BluRay debut. The four videos were all prerecorded and haven’t been seen before!

Book Corner with Diana Gabaldon and Maril Davis (August 23): Diana Gabaldon and Executive Producer Maril Davis look back at the process of adapting the books for the screen and answer die-hard fan questions. Diana also teases her upcoming ninth book, an excerpt of which will be included in the Outlander Season 5 Collector’s Edition.

A Taste of Outlander (August 30): Theresa Carle-Sanders, author of the Outlander Kitchen cookbook series, is joined by Lauren Lyle and John Bell to make a historically-inspired dish of fish and chips, a recipe from her latest book Outlander Kitchen: To the New World and Back Again.

The Music of Outlander (September 6): Series composer Bear McCreary and his wife, singer Raya Yarbrough discuss their favorite musical moments from the past five seasons of Outlander. They’re joined by Maria Doyle Kennedy, who performs an at-home rendition of “Flowers of the Forest,” as well as the twelve original singers of the season five theme for a breathtaking a capella version of  “The Skye Boat Song.”

Catch Up with Caitriona and Sam (September 13): Claire and Jamie themselves, Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan, reunite to catch up on life, discuss favorite moments from the past five seasons and answer fan questions from around the world.

In addition, the series will benefit Doctors Without Borders, and links to donate will be included in the series. In addition, Sony will make a donation to this important organization.

Teasers for some of the special scenes will be part of this weekly series. Deadline Hollywood has a bit of one of these scenes – between Murtagh and Ulysses on the eve of Jocasta’s wedding to Duncan Innes. You can see that here.

Outlander Collector, Sony’s home entertainment Facebook page for fans, posted some photos from what is likely another Untold scene, this time between Lizzie (Caitlin O’Ryan) and Young Ian. Season 5 will be released on September 15, in several formats, including a Collector’s Edition, which will include the Season 5 soundtrack CD and a 28-page full color photo book! You can pre-order it from Amazon. But the Outlander Untold scenes will be included in all formats that are released.
