    First of all, Stanley Kamel died last spring which is why Dr. Kroger was written out.

    Season seven will continue next week, November 28th, with the holiday episode "Mr. Monk and the Miracle." 7 more season seven episodes will air beginning January 9th 2009. In the summer of 2009 they'll run the first 8 or 9 episodes of season eight. The following winter they'll show the remaing 7 or 8 season eight episodes. The final episode will air in February or March of 2010. That's 24 new Monk episodes.

    The writers strike didn't effect Monk too much except to push back their shooting schedule a bit. Usually they would have finished shooting season 7.5 by now, but they still have a couple of episodes to go.

    Just to be clear, we're not through with season seven yet. 8 more episodes for season seven (8 were already shown this summer) plus 16 episodes for season eight (beginning in July 2009 and ending in Feb-Mar 2010) equals a total of 24 episodes we have yet to see. Yes, season eight will be the final season, but there has been some talk of future Monk movies, so I don't think they'll shut the door completely. Trudy's murder will be solved by the end of season eight. So says head writer Andy Breckman.

    Dale the Whale? I don't think so, but we'll have to wait and see.
