Are you ready for more Outlander? Ahead of the new season on Starz, the third season will finally be available to stream on Netflix tonight.

If you have been waiting patiently for more episodes of Outlander to arrive for streaming on Netflix, your long wait has finally come to an end. Following the streaming debut of seasons 1 and 2 of the hit Starz drama series on Netflix earlier this year, fans will end 2019 with another season of their favorite show. Season 3 of Outlander begins streaming on Netflix on Tuesday, Dec. 10 at midnight PT.

If you stay up late on Monday, Dec. 9, you can watch the season as soon as it’s available.

Outlander season 3 contains 13 episodes and aired between September and December 2017. The season joins the two previous seasons on Netflix, which consist of 16 and 13 episodes respectively. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem as though the fourth season will be available on Netflix ahead of the fifth season’s premiere on Starz in February 2020, but it’s the perfect time for new fans to catch up to speed with the time traveling romance before the next chapter.

The series premiered on Starz in 2014 as the adaptation of the popular Outlander book series by Diana Gabaldon. In the first season, married former World War II nurse Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) as she finds herself transported from 1946 back in time to Scotland in 1743. She becomes involved with the handsome Highland warrior Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) and ends up in the middle of the Jacobite risings, among other personal and political matters.

In the third season of Outlander, the historical fantasy romance adapts the novel Voyager and follows the aftermath of the previous season’s exploration of the Battle of Culloden, revealing Jamie’s fate and catching up with Claire’s personal affairs in Boston in 1948. She raises her daughter, Brianna, with Frank, though their lives take a tragic turn when Brianna goes to college. Claire later finds out what Jamie has been up to and the two end up chasing pirates.

Season 3 landed Outlander a number of award nominations and wins, including a Golden Globe nomination for Caitriona Balfe’s performance (her second of four consecutive nods) and clean sweep of wins at the People’s Choice Awards and Satellite Awards in all each of the categories the series earned nominations in.

Because of its continued success, Outlander landed a renewal for a fifth and sixth season on Starz, with the fifth premiering on Feb. 16. The seasons are expected to adapt the novels The Fiery Cross and A Breath of Snow and Ashes, keeping in line with the previous seasons. But for now, fans of the series can check out season 3 for a refresher on what went down, and viewers who picked up with the series on Netflix will be able to watch these episodes for the first time.
