The Blu-ray and DVD sets will both feature loads of bonus features including four new “Outlander Untold” scenes that follow the stories of fan-favorite characters, a blooper reel, two behind-the-scenes featurettes, a lyric video and a glimpse of life at home with the Frasers’ cat Adso.
The Blu-ray itself will come with exclusive special features including 15 deleted scenes, writer and producer commentaries and two behind-the-scenes featurettes, “The Heart of the Frasers” exploring Jamie and Claire’s relationship as well as their family bond and “Expanding the World: Sets & Costumes.” The Collector’s Edition will include the fifth season’s soundtrack on CD, a 28-page special digibook and an excerpt from the upcoming ninth novel in the source material franchise, Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone.
Season 5 of Outlander finds the Frasers fighting for their family and the home they have forged on Fraser’s Ridge. Jamie must find a way to defend all that he has created in America, and to protect those who look to him for leadership and protection – while hiding his personal relationship with Murtagh Fitzgibbons, the man whom Governor William Tryon has ordered him to hunt down and kill. With her family together at last, Claire Fraser must use her modern medical knowledge and foresight to prevent them from being ripped apart once again. However, while focusing on protecting others, she risks losing sight of what it means to protect herself. Meanwhile, Brianna Fraser and Roger MacKenzie have been reunited, but the spectre of Stephen Bonnet still haunts them. Roger strives to find his place – as well as Jamie’s respect – in this new and dangerous time. The Frasers must come together, navigating the many perils that they foresee – and those they can’t.
The Outlander television series, executive produced by Ronald D. Moore, Maril Davis, Matthew B. Roberts, Toni Graphia, Andy Harries and Jim Kohlberg, is inspired by Gabaldon’s Outlander series that has sold an estimated 30 million copies worldwide, with all the books having graced the New York Times best-sellers list. The series has become a worldwide success with audiences, spanning the genres of history, science fiction, romance and adventure in one amazing tale.
