“I never thought hearing a litany of your near-death experiences would bring me so much peace.

Outlander Season 6: Is it premiering on Netflix in December 2022?

Unfortunately, Outlander season 6 will not be available on Netflix in October, so fans will have to wait a little longer. Popular series regularly appear on Netflix thanks to what appears to be an agreement between Netflix and Starz. Two years after their Starz finales, the seasons of Outlander are reportedly added to Netflix. 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 if the viewers want to see the latest installment on Netflix. 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.

For reference, 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.

Outlander Season 6 Plot

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.
