Filming for and production of Season 6 of the Starz Outlander tv series began in February, 2021. No premiere date has been announced yet. When known, it will be prominently listed here!

Outlander Season 5

wedding2-season5In Season 5, Jamie Fraser must fight to protect those he loves, as well as the home he has established alongside his wife, Claire Fraser, their family, and the settlers of Fraser’s Ridge.

In the U.S.A., Outlander Season 5 first premiered on the STARZ cable network and streaming channel on Sunday, February 16, 2020. The first episode is titled, “The Fiery Cross,”, and this season is mostly an adaptation of my book with the same name. Starz subscribers may watch all of the episodes online.

Season 5 then premiered on various cable and streaming services in other viewing areas around the world. In some areas, such as the U.K., it is called “Series 5” of Outlander, due to a difference in terms. (In the U.S.A., a “series” refers to all years of a television program, not just one year, or one “season”.

Season 5 is also available on blu-ray, DVD, and digital download in the U.S.A. and many other areas. It is distributed by Sony.
