While we’re still coming to terms with the long wait until Outlander season five, a first-look photo from the new series is helping us through the dark times.

Released on STARZ’s official Twitter page, the photo features Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) in the New World (aka pre-revolutionary US), gazing — when are they not? — adoringly into each other’s eyes.

Caitriona Balfe, who plays the time-travelling Claire, retweeted the image on her Twitter account. “Just a couple of kids… 20+ years in…” she wrote, in reference to the gap of time in which Claire returned to the 1940s after mistakenly believing that Jamie had died.

The fifth season will pick up shortly after the fourth season finale, which ended on a cliffhanger after Jamie received an order from Governor Tryon to find and kill his godfather, Murtagh.
“Season five, we essentially pick up where we left them,” Richard Rankin, who plays Roger, told RadioTimes.com. “There’s a little passage of time, but there’s a lot going on for all of the characters, and there’s a lot of new relationships to be forged.”
