Outlander, the Starz historical drama that chronicles the romance between Jamie and Claire, which is based on the literary saga of the same name written by American author Diana Gabaldon, first appeared on screen in August 2014.
The drama starring Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe, saw the production of season 6 interrupted in March 2020 as a result of the blockade generated by the coronavirus pandemic that is affecting the world; thus causing a strong delay in its launch.
Recall that season 5 of Outlander premiered in its main house on the Starz channel, in February 2020, extending until May of the same year. And it was not until a month after the end of that installment, that the episodes of the fourth season of the historical drama reached Netflix.
That is, every time Outlander premieres a new season on Starz, the previous installment always presents a delay to appear on the Netflix streaming platform.
In this sense, fans will have to wait for the sixth installment of Outlander to premiere on Starz, to be able to see the episodes of season 5 on Netflix.
While production on Outlander season 6 began in early 2021, it will likely premiere in the fall of 2021 on the Starz channel, and therefore season 5 could be landing on Netflix by the end of the year.
