This ending might shock some Netflix customers. While the streaming service’s customers are still waiting for the penultimate season to finally be available, the production behind the series is already announcing the grand finale. The stars of the show promise they want to “say goodbye with a bang”.
We are talking about the fantasy series “Outlander”, which can be seen in the Netflix program in this country. With season 7 still in production, the makers of the period drama announce that season 8 will wrap up. The reactions of the spectators are surprising.
Netflix customers have to get ready to say goodbye
Netflix customers currently have access to six seasons of Outlander. The new season is expected to follow next year, but is currently being filmed in Scotland. The fans can then look forward to a total of 16 new episodes. In January 2023, the series was even extended for an eighth season, but the good news has a catch. After ten more episodes, “Outlander” should finally come to an end.
“Every good story has to come to an end,” says lead actor Sam Heughan in a video message to fans. Adds fellow actor John Bell, “We’re going to say goodbye with a bang and tell the story the way it was meant to be.”
“Outlander” is canceled: Netflix customers react unexpectedly
On social media, users are visibly surprised by the announcement, but for unexpected reasons. Apparently, many of them didn’t expect that new episodes of “Outlander” would be produced at all and that the series is still enjoying great popularity around ten years after its start. “I watched the first two seasons and forgot they even existed,” sneers one Twitter user. Another commented: “Holy shit is the show still on?”
It should not be forgotten that “Outlander” is nominated for the Golden Globes and the Saturn Award almost every year. The historical drama has already won around 30 television awards. Yet another Twitter user asserted: “This show took too long, it should have ended sooner. She had great chances of ending in a great way.”
Based on the books of the same name by Diana Gabaldon, Outlander follows a former WWII military nurse in Scotland who is transported from 1945 to 1743. There she meets a Highland warrior, falls in love with him and even marries him.
