If you don't have the Starz app, the channel is also available with a subscription to Philo (for an extra $9/month) and fuboTV (available for $5/month for the first three months). While Netflix does not have current seasons on its platform yet, Seasons 1-4 are available to binge with a Netflix subscription in case you need to get caught up on the action. It's also likely that as soon as Season 6 premieres, Season 5 will be available on the platform as well.

The sixth season of Outlander will contain six episodes, and Season 7 will have sixteen episodes. Season 6 of the show was shortened due to a pandemic, a phenomenon that fans have dubbed "droughtlander." Due to the sheer number of books Diana Gabaldon has written in the Outlander series, fans of the show shouldn't worry about it ending anytime soon.

Per Town and Country, executive producer Maril Davis spoke in 2019 about the show's future. "We'll keep making this until Claire and Jamie are a hundred. Honestly, we will. There are still many more books to go. And if Starz and Sony are willing, we're willing, and if the actors are willing, we'll keep going."

It was recently announced in February 2022 that an Outlander prequel series was already in the works from Starz. Variety broke the news but did not add any details about casting or who the series would center around. Fans will have to just wait and see!

Outlander Season 6 premieres on March 6, 2022.
