Diana Gabaldon’s Starz’s hit show, Outlander Season 6, just concluded on its native platform. But will Outlander Season 6 release on Netflix in May? The answer is rather complex. And after you read our post, you will have a better understanding of the calendar of the release schedule and distribution for this period series.
In case you haven’t heard of Outlander, it is based on a series of books by Diana Gabaldon. It tells the story of a nurse in World War II named Claire who travels back in time to Scotland in the 18th Century, where she meets and falls in love with a Scotsman who’s fighting the British army. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg concerning the series. Without any further ado, let’s see whether or not will Outlander Season 6 release on Netflix in May.
Outlander Season 6 Details
Outlander Season 6 consists of eight episodes of about one hour run time. The original series was aired on Starz at the beginning of March 2022 and concluded on May 1, 2022. Moreover, Season 7 is already confirmed and in production by Starz. And if all things go according to plan, we might even see the seventh Season drop on Starz by the end of this year or maybe in the first quarter of the next. Also, if you wish to read our recaps on the Sixth Season of Outlander, we encourage you to do so as they are full of tidbits of intel you won’t find elsewhere.
What’s Coming In Season 7?
Richard Brown arrives at Fraser’s Ridge to arrest Claire for Malva’s murder at the end of the sixth season. Jamie and Tom Christie accompany Claire to the Wilmington court to prevent Richard from hurting her. To prevent Jamie from saving his wife from the trial and hanging, Richard sends his forces to transfer him aboard a ship bound for Scotland halfway through the journey. Without Jamie, Richard transports Claire to Wilmington prison. Before Richard’s soldiers compel Jamie to board the vessel, Ian saves his uncle with the help of Chief Bird and his fighters. To save Claire, they set off on a journey to Wilmington together.
Claire’s arrest is expected to be discussed in the forthcoming season. Tom Christie might be the only one who can save her. We might see Roger, Brianna, and their family return to the twentieth century if the season conforms to the plot of season 7’s sourcebook, ‘An Echo in the Bone.’ Claire and Jamie could become caught up in the Revolutionary War and end up in Scotland. Fergus, Marsali, and their children may also move to Philadelphia from New Bern.
Outlander Season 6
Will Outlander Season 6 Release On Netflix In May?
The short answer is yes! But there’s a caveat. It’s not May 2022. Firstly, Outlander Season 6 won’t release on Netflix in May 2022. Why you may ask? Well, it’s because of distribution issues. You see, Starz wants as many people to see Outlander on their platform before they give it to the competition. That way, they can do several things, like doing some math, grabbing extra subscribers, and fulfilling those contracts that are signed behind closed doors.
After the proper time has passed, Outlander Season 6 will drop on Netflix in May. Yes, but in May 2024. We make this affirmation based on a series of things. Firstly, the Season 3 finale of Outlander dropped on December 10, 2017, and the Season dropped on Netflix in December 2019. Then, Season four’s finale aired on January 27, 2019, then landed on Netflix in January 2021. Season six concluded just on May 1, 2022.
We’re Going To Have To Wait
And given the trend, there’s no reason to think that Outlander Season 6 will land on Netflix in May 2024.
