Are you an Outlander fan?

What better way to survive Droughtlander than for Starz to provide a season five clip reveal during the network’s upcoming “Page to Screen” weekend on December 14 and 15.

You can learn the details about the weekend special here, but if you want to know specifically about that special clip of the upcoming 5th season, you will want to check out Starz on December 15 at 8 PM (ET/PT).

You’ll get to see the first FOUR minutes of the season premiere.

Then it’ll be back to waiting for Sunday, February 16 to roll around so we can all watch the full season premiere of Outlander.

And unless you’ve been living under a rock since Thanksgiving, you’ve probably already seen the following fantastic season five promo picture of Jamie and Claire (Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe), but here it is for you to enjoy!
