Outlander Season 6 finally has a premiere date. It’s later than we’d like, but at least we know when the episodes will begin.

There’s no doubt that we were excited to find out Outlander would arrive in early 2022. This was news shared back in June, and it gave us a small light at the end of the Droughtlander tunnel. Now that light is getting brighter, and it’s not a speeding train coming toward us.

We have an official premiere date. We had expected sometime in February based on a comment by Sam Heughan, but it turns out that it’s going to be March instead.

When will Outlander Season 6 premiere

STARZ announced that Outlander Season 6 will premiere on Sunday, March 6, 2022. The episodes will air at 8 p.m. ET/PT on the channel, but if you have the STARZ app, you’ll be able to stream from midnight ET. It’s certainly worth getting the app while the series is on the air.

There are eight episodes in the season. This is the shortest season due to pandemic protocols slowing things down (and we’re also thinking Caitriona Balf’s pregnancy). If there are no breaks in the season, we’re looking at the finale airing on Sunday, April 24.

There is a chance there’s a one-week break around the halfway mark. This is common with all STARZ shows, and we have seen it with previous seasons of Outlander. With that in mind, we’re looking at the finale airing on Sunday, May 1.
