The wait for Outlander season 6 has felt like an eternity, and many people are eager for the next installment to arrive. With the fourth season arriving on Netflix to kick off 2021, many fans are probably wondering what the future holds for the time-bending romantic drama, especially when it comes to the possibility of an Outlander season 7.
The six-time Golden Globe-nominated series is based on the well-renowned novel series of the same name written by Diana Gabaldon. The Starz original TV series that is popular on Netflix follows a married English combat nurse named Claire Randall, who is transported back to 1743 in Scotland, where she encounters the dashing Highland warrior known as Jamie Fraser and becomes entangled in the Forty-five Rebellion or The Jacobite Rising of 1745.
Although Outlander season 6 has not premiered yet, Starz has renewed Outlander for season 7, according to a report from TV Line.
It’s been reported that production on season 6 is happening right now. That means we’re not going to be seeing season 6 (or season 7!) anytime soon.
Outlander season 7 release date
As mentioned, it may be a very long time before an Outlander season 7 release date is revealed to the public. The time between the fifth and sixth season was so long it became known as Droughtlander that many fans feared they would not survive.
The series has seen gaps of about a year or more in between seasons with the exception of the last hiatus, and there is no telling when Outlander season 7 will arrive.
At the time of publishing, the earliest we could expect to see Outlander season 7 is sometime in 2022, but it could be even longer than that.
When is Outlander season 7 on Netflix?
Outlander season 7 will likely arrive on Netflix at least a year or more after the season finale airs. At the time of publishing, don’t expect to see Outlander season 7 on Netflix earlier than 2023.
There are still two more seasons of Outlander waiting to hit Netflix before season 7, so we’ll have a much better idea when the new season will arrive after season 5 and season 6 hit Netflix.
