How Many Episodes Will Be in Season 8 of Outlander?
Season 8 of Outlander will have ten episodes. The writers have been keeping the plotlines close to their chest, but one can expect Season 8 to bring a fitting end to Fraser and Claire’s love story. Recall that Outlander is actually based on the Outlander series of historical fantasy novels written by Diana Gabaldon.
The book series has nine books so far, which have been adapted by the TV series, and Gabaldon is working on a 10th and final book. This will, however, not be finished in time to be used for the TV series, and as such, the producers are moving ahead without it. They have, however, promised that the ending they will come up with will be a satisfying one that Diana will like.
Is Season 8 the Last Season of Outlander?
Season 8 of Outlander will be the last Season of the series. The show has been an overwhelming success since its debut in August 2014, but all good things eventually come to an end, and the goal of the producers of Outlander is to bring it to a proper conclusion.
The ending of Outlander will definitely be a bitter pill for some fans, but they shouldn’t worry, as there will be more Outlander action. A spin-off prequel series has been confirmed titled Outlander: Blood of My Blood. It will focus on Jamie Fraser’s parents, Brian and Ellen Fraser. It has been confirmed that the Outlander spin-off will have ten episodes, and it may hit the screens in 2024.
