The first two seasons of Outlander are now on Netflix in the United States but you may be wondering when the newer seasons will be on Netflix. Outlander has produced seasons 3, 4, 5 and even sixth season that’s due to air in 2019. Let’s take a look at when we can expect future seasons of Outlander to be on Netflix.
The period drama which unexpectedly came to Netflix in May 2019 joins many other Netflix regions that also streams the show.
Outlander is based on the book series of the same name which sees a nurse from the mid-1940s in WW2 travel back in time to the mid-1700s.
Although the series is a Starz show, it’s actually distributed by Sony Pictures Television. In a similar fashion to Shameless (which we’ll mention again shortly) coming to Netflix, it wasn’t because Showtime allowed it, it was because Warner Brothers decided to license as it is the distributor.
Now let’s move onto when we’ll be seeing seasons 3, 4, 5 and the now confirmed 6th season of Outlander on Netflix.
When will season 3 of Outlander be on Netflix?
The most likely scenario is that it’ll follow a yearly trend as we’ve seen with most other third-party pickups from Netflix. That’d mean that new seasons arrive on Netflix every May which means season 3 would drop May 2020, season 4 in 2021, season 5 in 2022 and so on.
However, a recent example we have of Netflix picking up a show far into the shows life is Shameless. In that instance, Netflix picked up the first few seasons, got new seasons on an annual basis but saw a drop of a few additional seasons to catch up. We don’t know if that’s going to be the case for this show but it’s something to bare in mind.
Is there anywhere else to watch Outlander?
At the moment, your best location for streaming Outlander remains the Starz app for streaming. All four seasons on its website and application although you’ll need a separate subscription to watch.
Likewise, the new seasons will be found first on its applications before coming to Netflix.
