Outlander Season 6: When will it premiere on Netflix?

Since Starz is the main network of the TV series, it broadcast the season finale of Outlander Season 6 on May 1, 2022. Hence, Netflix subscribers are unlikely to watch the following episode until early May 2024. This is well known by the fans that this time frame has been the case for the previous seasons as well. By considering this, we know that the new seasons of the well-liked series are often released by the streaming juggernaut two years after their finales air on the program’s parent network. 

The fifth season’s finale aired on Starz on May 10, 2020, and was subsequently made available on Netflix exactly two years later, on May 10, 2022. Probably because of the deal negotiated between Starz and Netflix. As a result, we are rather certain that the sixth season won’t be released until May 1, 2024. We suggest the viewers to be patient and catch up on the previous seasons to know about what events have transpired in the last 5 seasons. 

On the other hand, all the previous seasons are now available on STARZ and the STARZ app, with new episodes launching on Sunday evenings. Furthermore, earlier seasons of Outlander are also presently available on Amazon Prime Video, the STARZ app, and Hulu, depending on the location of the viewers. On the other hand, Outlander Season 1 to 5  is also available to stream on Netflix in several international regions, following a similar schedule as the official STARZ site, which publishes episodes weekly.

Outlander Season 6: What happened in the season?

In the last season, the viewers got to see that as political upheaval in the colonies erupted, the Frasers (Jamie, Claire, Brianna, and Roger) attempted to live peacefully on their remote property in North Carolina’s foothills. Jamie is unexpectedly forced to choose between his devotion to the oath he took to the British monarch and his dream of freedom in the New World. Trouble continues with the Browns, who organize a “safety committee,” that threatens the peace on the ridge, splitting the local American Indians, the British, and the Frasers. 

Meanwhile, the Christies come onto the Ridge, a throwback to Jamie’s time in Ardsmuir Prison, and begin to impact the Ridge’s harmony. Malva Christie, Tom Christie’s daughter, develops feelings for Claire, only to betray her by announcing her pregnancy with Jamie as the father. As Jamie and Claire’s grip over Fraser’s Ridge grows increasingly tenuous, the season concludes with a great deal of discontent between the Browns and the Christies. Take a look at the official trailer below if you haven’t watched the season yet to get glimpses about the plot.

Outlander Season 6: Is it the last season of the series?

No, Starz has renewed the series for Season 7 which seems like the last season of the franchise. As it feels like they were in it till they ran out of books by Diana Gabaldon. Therefore, the present status of any additional seasons for Outlander is still unknown as Season 8 has not yet been announced by Starz. When Season 7’s filming is finished and the episodes start to air on the network, the audience and critical response to the new season will actually determine the series’ faith for any further installments. This also depends on the show’s creators and producers. 

If they feel the franchise has a lot of stories left to tell or if it has completed the different arcs for good. Christina Davis, President of Original Programming for Starz, stated, “Starz is committed to investing in unapologetic, bold premium storytelling that amplifies diverse voices and shines a spotlight on women in front of and behind the camera through our #TakeTheLead initiative.” Further adding, “The hit series Outlander embodies everything about our initiative including a powerful female lead character and an amazing team of storytellers. We look forward to following the adventures of Claire and Jamie in America during the Revolution as well as more time travel during this next season.”

Moreover, executive producer Maril Davis said at a TCA panel for the series, “We’ll keep making this until Claire and Jamie are 100. Honestly, we will. There’s still many more books to go. And if Starz and Sony are willing, we’re willing, and if the actors are willing, we’ll keep going.” According to Vanity Fair, in January 2021, Balfe hinted that she might like to go out with Season 7. “We will have hit the almost 10-year mark by the end of that [season], which feels like a nice kind of time frame,” she explained before adding, “But we don’t know. Those decisions are far above my pay grade.”
