Good news Outlander fans! After a long waiting period, Outlander season 5 is finally coming to Netflix U.S. this May! While the fifth season has been available in other countries for a while, U.S. fans have been forced to wait due to licensing deals between Netflix and Starz.

For those who have been patiently waiting for the fifth season to hit the streaming service, you won’t have to wait too much longer! The series is currently airing its sixth season on Starz with the finale slated for May 1.

Outlander season 6 is much shorter than previous seasons, with only eight episodes total due to production delays during the pandemic. But the popular historical time travel series based on Diana Gabaldon’s books has already been renewed for a seventh season which will be significantly longer at 16 episodes.

When is Outlander season 5 coming to Netflix?

Outlander season 5 will arrive in full on Tuesday, May 10, 2022, at 12:00 a.m. PT / 3:00 a.m. ET. All 12 episodes of the season will be available to watch at the same time.

Here is the list of episodes in order:

  • 5×01 – “The Fiery Cross”
  • 5×02 – “Between Two Fires”
  • 5×03 – “Free Will”
  • 5×04 – “The Company We Keep”
  • 5×05 – “Perpetual Adoration”
  • 5×06 – “Better to Marry Than Burn”
  • 5×07 – “The Ballad of Roger Mac”
  • 5×08 – “Famous Last Words”
  • 5×09 – “Monsters and Heroes”
  • 5×10 – “Mercy Shall Follow Me”
  • 5×11 – “Journeycake”
  • 5×12 – “Never My Love”

The fifth season stars Caitríona Balfe, Sam Heughan, Richard Rankin, Sophie Skelton, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Colin McFarlane, David Berry, Duncan Lacroix, Paul Gorman, Bronwyn James and Chris Donald.

When is Outlander season 6 coming to Netflix?

Since seasons have to air on Starz first and then there is an exclusive period in which the show remains on the Starz service, the sixth season will not be on Netflix U.S. until next year, probably around April or May 2023.

For now, if you’re dying to watch the latest season, you’d be better off watching all five seasons available on Netflix (once the fifth season arrives on May 10) and then signing up for a month of Starz to watch season 6 before the seventh season arrives.

Stream Outlander seasons 1-4 on Netflix right now.
