Outlander returned for its sixth season on Starz and it arrived on Netflix in select regions weekly starting March 2022. Season 5 was released on Netflix in May 2022, so if you've already watched all the episodes on the streaming service, the biggest question is when Season 6 is coming to Netflix in your region.
Commissioned by Starz and distributed by Sony Pictures Television, Outlander Season 6 is a slightly shorter new season with only eight episodes. Now, fans are wondering when and what regions the new season will be available to stream on Netflix.
Outlander Season 6 Netflix Original Release Schedule: Which regions are getting weekly episodes?
Outlander Season 6 is carried as a Netflix Original in select regions, meaning it's distributed by Netflix exclusively. The Season 6 episodes are released 24 hours after they air in the United States starting March 7, 2022. For these regions, the show was carried exclusively since Season 2.
Here's a list of regions confirmed or expected to receive weekly episodes of Outlander Season 6:
- Hong Kong
- Poland (no Netflix Original branding)
- South Korea*
Regions marked with an asterisk are not showing weekly episode notice despite being a Netflix Original.
When will Outlander Season 6 be released in the U.S.?
Outlander Season 6 is still not be available to stream on Netflix in the United States and Israel. The list of upcoming films and TV shows coming to Netflix in November 2022 doesn't include Outlander Season 6.
Based on past schedules, new seasons of Outlander usually arrive on Netflix US exactly two years after they've wrapped up airing in the US, so it's likely that Outlander Season 6 will arrive on Netflix US in late April or early May 2024 at the earliest. However, there is no official confirmation that it will happen.

When will Outlander Season 6 arrive on Netflix in Australia, Brazil, and other regions?
While Outlander Season 6 will arrive on Netflix in select regions weekly, it's not labeled as a Netflix Original in most other main regions, so usually, a local distributor carries the series to air, then arrives on Netflix at a later date.
Regions not getting weekly episodes:
- The Netherlands
- South Africa
New seasons of Outlander typically arrive exactly a year after the series premieres in these regions. For example, Season 5 arrived on Netflix Australia on February 17, 2021, just a year after the season started airing new episodes on Feb. 16, 2020.
If the plan is the same for Season 6, expect it to arrive on other regions listed above around March 6, 2023.
In Canada, Season 5 arrived on Netflix around 11 months so expect Season 6 to come in either late 2022 or early 2023.
Is Outlander Season 6 coming to the UK?
No, there are currently no plans to add Outlander on Netflix in the UK because streaming rights for that region were sold to Amazon Prime Video where the series continues to stream.
Outlander Season 6 will be based on the sixth book of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series, A Breath of Snow and Ashes, and according to Starz, the new season “sees a continuation of Claire and Jamie’s fight to protect those they love, as they navigate the trials and tribulations of life in colonial America. Establishing a home in the New World is by no means an easy task, particularly in the wild backcountry of North Carolina — and perhaps most significantly — during a period of dramatic political upheaval. The Frasers strive to maintain peace and flourish within a society which, as Claire knows all too well, is unwittingly marching towards Revolution. Against this backdrop, which heralds the birth of the new American nation, Claire and Jamie have built a home together at Fraser’s Ridge.
