Ever since Outlander Season 5 dropped on Netflix last week, its international fans have been desperate to know how to find out what happens next. 

If you're anything like us, you've probably already binged the fifth season of the historical drama based on one of the bestselling books from the past decade and are now hungry for more time-traveling entertainment.  

Outlander Season 5 premiered on Netflix US on May 10, 2022, two years after it was released on the premium American channel, Starz. Its 12 juicy episodes were promptly devoured by viewers, leaving many desperate to find out how to watch Outlander Season 6

Outlander Seasons 1, 2, 3, and 4 have also been made available on Netflix in multiple regions in Europe but are notably missing from the streamer's UK platform due to a rights conflict with Amazon Prime.

Unfortunately, the sixth installment of the fantasy-romance series is exclusive to Starz, which only offers subscriptions to US and Puerto Rico residents. Season 6 of Outlander, as well as all of its previous seasons, are also available on Amazon Prime UK. 

It won't hit Netflix, however, until 2024. 

If you feel like you can't wait another two years to get your Jamie and Claire fix (we hear you), here's how to watch Outlander from anywhere in the world using a VPN. 

How to watch Outlander from anywhere in the world 

If you're in the US or Puerto Rico, you can watch all six seasons of Outlander on Starz. It's worth keeping in mind that the $8.99 a month streamer doesn't offer a free trial, so be sure to check out its listings before making a subscription. 

All six seasons of Outlander are also available to watch on Amazon Prime UK for £5.99 a month after a 7-day-long free trial. Alternatively, you can buy individual episodes for £2.49 a piece. 

If you want to subscribe to Starz from the UK, there's also the option to download a handy-dandy VPN (virtual private network). This is a great way to access TV shows and movies that aren't available in your native country, without flying across the world to do so.
