Wondering if Outlander Season 6 is coming to Netflix in May? Read on to find out the latest updates.

Imagine waking up one day and realizing that you have traveled years into the past, and you are thrown into a world where your life is threatened. Scary, right? The same thing happened with Claire Randall in Outlander, who is a married combat nurse from 1945 and moved back in time to 1743.

It is a historical drama series and is based on the novel series of the same name by Diana Gabaldon. The plot focuses on the life of Claire, who is traveled back in time, where she finds, falls in love with, and marries a dashing Highland warrior named Jamie Fraser. But the couple’s life is not all rainbow and sunshine as they have to face many problems continuously for their survival, all while staying together and fighting the monsters of the strange land.

The show was created by Ronald D. Moore and premiered on August 9, 2014, on Starz. The second season aired in April 2016, followed by a third season in September 2017. The fourth season of the series aired from November 2018 to January 2019. The fifth season aired from February to May 2020. The show was renewed for a sixth season and is currently airing on Starz.

But, Outlander fans on Netflix are waiting for the show to arrive on the streaming service, and rightly so. The time-traveling romance is definitely a big hit among fans, and we can’t wait to see how the story will progress from the events of the fifth season.

Here’s everything you need to know about Outlander Season 6 on Netflix.

Outlander Season 6: When is it coming to Netflix?

Outlander Season 6 premiered on March 6, 2022, on Starz. While there’s no update as to when will Season 6 drop on Netflix, we might have to wait a bit longer as the fifth season of the series has still not been released on Netflix yet. Season 5 is set to drop on May 10.

If we are to guess, there is a pattern of releasing the new seasons two years after they release their finales on the show’s parent network on Netflix. So, we expect Outlander Season 6 to arrive on our screens in a couple of years.

Outlander’s Season 3 finale premiered on Starz on December 10, 2017, and the season was released on Netflix on December 10, 2019. Season 4 finale was released on Starz on January 27, 2019, and the season was uploaded on Netflix in January 2021. Based on this information, we expect that the fifth season will premiere on Netflix in May 2022, with Season 6 in April or May 2024.

Outlander Season 6 Plot

The series is based on Diana Gabaldon’s novels of the same name, and Season 6 is partly adapted from the sixth novel, A Breath of Snow and Ashes. Starz describes the new season as follows:

“The sixth season of Outlander sees a continuation of Claire and Jamie’s fight to protect those they love as they navigate the trials and tribulations of life in colonial America. Establishing a home in the New World is by no means an easy task, particularly in the wild backcountry of North Carolina—and perhaps most significantly—during a period of dramatic political upheaval. The Frasers strive to maintain peace and flourish within a society which—as Claire knows all too well—is unwittingly marching towards Revolution. Against this backdrop, which heralds the birth of the new American nation, Claire and Jamie have built a home together at Fraser’s Ridge.

They must now defend this home—established on land granted to them by the Crown—not only from external forces but also from the increasing strife and conflict in the community within their care. For the Frasers and their immediate family, “home” is more than simply a site in which they live, it is the place where they are laying the foundations for the rest of their lives.

If Season 4 asked “What is home?” and Season 5 asked, “What are you willing to do to protect your home?” then Season 6 explores what happens when there is disharmony and division among the inhabitants of the home you’ve created: when you become an outsider or an ‘outlander,’ so to speak, marginalized and rejected in your own home”.
