Some fans have expressed their disappointment with Joose leaving the country so soon. They noted that he just made his debut on the show in the 7 Little Johnstons season finale, and they want to know him more.

Still, some are confident that Joose Jeskanen will be back on the show's next season. His appearance was somewhat brief and definitely a cliffhanger. 

Perhaps the Johnstons already filmed a few scenes with him for future episodes. Or better yet, Joose might return to Georgia to film with them in person.
