The End of Summer series is being released in support of Doctors Without Borders, an international humanitarian aid organization working in over 70 countries around the world.

Viewers at home will be able to use Facebook’s donate feature to contribute to the non-profit’s lifesaving medical humanitarian work.

Along with segments featuring all-new conversations with talent and figures integral to the Outlander universe, each episode will also reveal a sneak peek at an original scripted “Outlander Untold” scene featuring fan-favourite characters, to be available when the fifth season arrives on Blu-ray™ and DVD on September 21.

Episodes in the Outlander End-of-Summer series include:

Book Corner with Diana Gabaldon and Maril Davis (August 23): Outlander author Diana Gabaldon and Executive Producer Maril Davis look back at the process of adapting Gabaldon’s work 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 cast members Lauren Lyle (Marsali) and John Bell (Young Ian) 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 singer Raya Yarbrough discuss their favourite musical moments from the past five seasons of Outlander. They’re joined by Maria Doyle Kennedy (Aunt Jocasta), who performs an at-home rendition of Flowers Of The Forest, as well as the 12 original singers of the season five theme for a breathtaking a cappella 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 favourite moments from the past five seasons and answer fan questions from around the world.
