Every month we get closer to the new season of Outlander coming to Netflix. Unfortunately, that won’t be happening in June 2021. We’ll have to wait even longer to watch Outlander season 5.
Outlander season 5 is not coming to Netflix in June 2021. Netflix shared the full list of new shows and movies coming during the first official month of summer, and Outlander season 5 was not on the list.
And, we’re probably going to be waiting quite a while until the new season of the TV series hits Netflix.
Outlander season 5 release date on Netflix
Outlander season 5 premiered on Starz in February 2020 and ran for 12 episodes through May 2020. If this were a normal show that Netflix has the streaming rights to, Outlander season 5 would have been released on Netflix in May 2021, at the latest.
Unfortunately, Outlander is different, and fans have to wait much longer to watch the new seasons on Netflix.
New seasons of the romantic period drama are added to Netflix two years after the season finale airs on Starz. For instance, the Outlander season 4 finale aired on Jan. 27, 2019. The season was just added to Netflix on Jan. 27, 2021.
So, we’re about a year away, at the time of publishing, for Outlander season 5 to be released on Netflix.
The Outlander season 5 finale aired on May 10, 2020. If the current release pattern holds, we’ll see Outlander season 5 on Netflix on May 10, 2022.
Outlander season 6 is currently in the works. It does not have a premiere date scheduled yet, but we’re expecting the new season will premiere sometime in 2021. Fingers crossed that actually happens!
And, if it does, we’ll likely see Outlander season 6 on Netflix sometime in 2023. If the season is pushed to next year, we’ll see Outlander season 6 on Netflix in 2024.
The series has already been renewed for season 7.
Stay tuned for more news about Outlander season 5, season 6, and the show’s future on Netflix.
