Fans of the hit time-traveling drama, Outlander, will be thrilled to hear that there will be a season 8. Executive producer Matthew B. Roberts recently discussed the show's future on the official Outlander podcast, revealing that they initially didn't think they would get another season. This news made them "rethink everything," but Roberts assured fans that they have a solid plan going forward.

While he didn't want to spoil any surprises, Roberts promised that they will end Jamie and Claire Fraser's story "on a high." He emphasized the team's desire to be fair to the show's dedicated fanbase, stating that they won't rush an ending just to satisfy the audience.

They want to do things right.

The first half of season seven recently concluded with Jamie and Claire's return to Scotland. Roberts explained that it was intentionally a positive ending, but viewers should brace themselves for the challenges that lie ahead for the beloved characters. As Roberts puts it, "bad things happen to good people."

Although fans will have to wait until 2024 for the second half of season seven, they can expect the final season to be nothing short of fantastic. Despite the delay caused by the writers' strike, Outlander enthusiasts can rest assured that the series will go out with a bang.
