Droughtlander ahead is shaping up to be longer than ever (and they’re usually long as it is), so we’re very happy to hear Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is providing us with some new content – nothing beats new episodes, after all, but we’ll take it.
The End of Summer Series will be made available each Sunday for four weeks, beginning August 23 at 1pm EDT/10am PDT, through the Outlander Collector Facebook page. Each week there will be a new thematic episode celebrating the show and its incredible fans, all in support of Doctors Without Borders.
Along with segments featuring cast and other figures integral to the Outlander universe, each episode will also contain a sneak peek at some of the content coming when the fifth season is released on Blu-ray™, DVD, digital and limited Collector’s Edition on September 15.
