Upcoming New Fantasy Series in October 2023

Outlander Season 5, Episode 13

Netflix, October 5 2023

Good news for Outlander fans – after that shocking episode 12 from when the show was released in May 2023, when everyone cried out for a follow-up episode (because Outlander seasons always had at least 13 episodes) and Starz just said nothing, they are actually releasing a 13th episode. Was it planned all along? Or did they quickly slap it together? We don’t know. But maybe this will give us some hope for poor Claire and what she went through when Outlander Season 5 Episode 13 releases on 5 October on Netflix.
