Have you tuned into Outlander on Starz or on Netflix yet? There’s certainly no time like the present to add this one to your queue. The fourth season of the Starz Original series made its way to Netflix earlier this year. Looking to the show’s future, the binge has likely just begun for most of us.

And for those just warming up to this fan-favorite, here’s the premise.

What is Outlander about?

Netflix describes the plot as:

"This epic tale adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s popular series of fantasy-romance novels focuses on the drama of two time-crossed lovers."

Based on the bestselling series of the same name, Outlander was dreamed up by award-winning author Diana Gabaldon. For those of you who don’t know, she actually began the series back in the 1990s. Flash forward to 2021, and her historic fantasy novels have since made her a true household name in the book business. Thus far, she’s published eight of the 10 planned volumes, giving all of us hope that there’s still much more to come down the road for the TV adaptation.

The Rotten Tomatoes Critics Consensus for Outlander season 5 says the series “romantic ardor doesn’t burn as bright,” but that “the Frasers remain an enthralling pair as they try to forge a home together.” While critical reviews haven’t been as stellar as seasons past, we’re still ready to see the latest season on Netflix.

Will Outlander season 5 be released on Netflix in 2021?

Anything is possible, but probably not. As we previously reported, Outlander season 4 just premiered on January 27, 2021. So let’s do our best to be patient for now and assume that eventually, we will get to binge the next season on Netflix.

To note, Outlander season 5 concluded on Starz in May 2020. While sometimes seasons of shows are added to Netflix about a year after their final episode airs on TV, this doesn’t seem exactly likely with Outlander considering season 4 was released onto the streaming service this year.

Chances are, we’ll be waiting for a long while. But don’t fret, Outlander lovers. The hit Starz series is bound to be back for another installment on Netflix before we know it. And as soon as we get wind of when exactly that will be, we’ll definitely let you know. So stay tuned, friends.
