So far, fans know Outlander will end with Jamie Fraser’s (played by Sam Heughan) ghost, which has only been seen in the first ever episode. Diana Gabaldon has revealed his ghost will return at the end of her final Outlander novel and it’s likely to be the same with the Starz series. Now, the author has teased more about the ending.
According to Diana, fans will be left “in floods of tears” but they shouldn’t worry about it being sad.
She explained to The Dipp: “I can’t say [the final ghost scene is] not part of the plot of the book, but it’s not a linear part of what came before.
“I’m not saying it’s not important, but it doesn’t really seem to affect the plot as it goes along.”
It’s not known yet if in the books, the ghost will be part of an epilogue or a separate chapter.

With regards to the TV series, the storyline could be wrapped up before Jamie’s ghost appears for the final time.
Speaking more about the ending, Diana has previously clarified on her website: “I think the Outlander books will end in 1800.
“If this tells you anything, more power to you.
“And yes, the last book will have a happy ending, though I confidently expect it to leave the readers in floods of tears, anyway.”
Outlander fans are desperate to find out what will happen to Claire and
