    A source very close to the Monk production staff has confirmed that all 16 episodes of Season 8 will air all together instead of being split into a summer and winter season.

    That is probably why they chose the premiere date so late in the summer.

    Here is the source:

    Go down to the topic, MORE MONK NEWS - MONK: THE EIGHTH SEASON.

    It also lists some of the episode titles!

    Also, the video from that talk show was spectacular with the car blowing up and a little information on that episode.

    When does season 8 air?? Please someone, anyone. I'm starting to get worried because it only says The final season this summer. "When this Summer!" ??

    Thanks fellow Monk fans

    if season 8 is not split and starts on august 7th like predicted that means that the season will end around november. that means that the final season of Monk wont have a christmas special unless they air it after the finale (which i would hate) or they put a lot of breaks between the episodes (you know like two weeks on two weeks off that sort of thihng)

    I honestly won't miss the Christmas episode this season - not that they haven't done them extremely well - but I'm hoping that they put a lot of emphasis this season into the Trudy mystery. I would rather have an additional Trudy centered episode than a Christmas episode.

    Do you think he'll ever open the present from her? Maybe there's a chance it's a clue, however small.

    That would really be the only reason why I would want to see a Christmas episode, but since the timing of the season isn't right, I'm sure that if there is something important in the gift, they will have Monk open in sometime.

    Well, there's always Christmas in July. (although the season isn't technically supposed to start until August)

    perhaps after the case is solced in the final epi they can flash ahead to christmas time and he will open the present! best of both worlds!

    One thing that hasn't been considered: Last year, the Christmas Monk and Psych specials aired like, the day after Thanksgiving. 16 weeks after August 7 is November 20th. They always have a week off of both shows because of golf anyway, so it's possible that the series finale will be set during Christmas time.

    I highly doubt it, I say if they are going to make a christmas one make it and air it when it airs, Oh no it airs a month early. Whoopdi doo, just gets people in the christmas mood. Plus when you watch the dvd set/repeats you aren't always watching it christmas, yet you still watch the christmas episode. So to sum it up who cares. People can rewatch it at christmas if they want.

    I'm glad the final season won't be split. It would be weird to have 2 finales when we know the show is ending.
