Outlander is making an unexpected appearance on Netflix in the United States by the end of May 2019. Both seasons 1 and 2 of the fantasy epic are scheduled to arrive on Netflix on May 27th, 2019.
The Starz series has been wildly successful for the network but up until now, you’ve had to have a Starz subscription in the United States or relied on Amazon Prime in some regions.
However, Netflix has carried the show as an Original in most of mainland Europe, Asia, Australia, and some other regions but for the most part, it’s not been available on Netflix.
The series stars Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan, Duncan Lacroix and is set back in 1743 when a combat nurse during World War 2 is swept back in time to the era. The show has been nominated for 6 Golden Globes and its fourth season finished up in January 2019.
Netflix does carry Starz series all around the world but in the United States, Netflix currently carries Spartacus and even then, we’re expecting that to leave in 2020 and Ash Vs Evil Dead whos third and final season arrives at the end of April 2019.
When is Outlander coming to Netflix in the United States?
The announcement of Outlander coming to Netflix came from the Netflix Family Twitter account late on Monday, April 22nd.
The announcement only mentions seasons 1 and 2 which are now due for release at the end of May (specifically May 27th). This is only expected to cover the United States. Other regions will keep existing arrangements.

When will season 3 & 4 of Outlander be on Netflix?
Netflix will now likely renew Outlander on an annual basis so by the latest, we’d expect season 3 to be made available come April 2020. Sometimes, however, Netflix has picked up multiple seasons to catch up but not on a fixed time period.
Season 5 of the show is currently in production scheduled for release later in 2019. In addition, Starz has also given the show a sixth season which was ordered alongside the fifth.
