A new scene from “Outlander” season 4 will be released this Sunday. The exclusive scene will be shown right after a marathon session of season 3. Meanwhile, author Diana Gabaldon is celebrating her birthday.

The scene will be screened exclusively on Starz. According to the announcement (see below), the season 3 marathon will begin at 9:05 a.m. E/P on Sunday and the exclusive scene from season 4 will air at 10 p.m. E/P. It isn’t clear if this video will be released online later.

A preview scene from next season has already been released online. Filming had begun even before the season 3 finale aired. By Christmas, the cast and crew had filmed four episodes, giving them enough time to put together a teaser for fans.

Meanwhile, a video of Sam Heughan (Jamie) and Caitriona Balfe (Claire) has been posted on Entertainment Weekly. The video was shot on the set of the show.

In the video, Heughan compared Droughtlander to riding a ship. He explained it was like being in a confined space with little to drink. In order to overcome this long period of waiting, the actor suggested getting out of the house. Balfe, on the other hand, suggested that fans stay home and drink or read a book.

For the actors, there’s no Droughtlander anymore, Balfe and Heughan joked. The two actors are mostly involved with the TV series the whole year; they are busy filming when they are not interacting with fans.

Meanwhile, the producers and the cast members wished Gabaldon on her birthday. The “Outlander” TV series wouldn’t have been possible without her writing. The author thanked everyone for the wishes (see below).

“Outlander” season 4 is set to air sometime later this year. The producers are yet to announce an exact release date.
