Work on the eighth and final season of Outlander has begun after the resolution of the Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike. Showrunner Matthew B. Roberts teased the start of production with an ambiguous Instagram post featuring a sunrise on a beach. While he didn't explicitly mention Outlander, fans flooded the comments section with excitement for the upcoming season. Roberts previously shared that the renewal for season eight forced the crew to rethink their plans and promised a high-quality conclusion to the popular series. The prequel series, Outlander: Blood of My Blood, can also resume work now that the strike is resolved.
