On May 4, 2015, Jon Graham released an extended teaser of the eighth season of Arby 'n the Chief. The teaser, clocking in at over 20 minutes, serves as a preview of the upcoming season.
Some time following the incineration of Jon's apartment, Arbiter finds himself in a ship in outer space. He is eventually greeted by an entity in the shape of a monitor. The monitor, with Chief's voice and usual mannerisms, informs Arbiter about his current situation and that he has been asleep for four years. Following this revelation, Arbiter is told that his purpose will be shown if they embark on an "odyssey" together.
The teaser has been acclaimed so far by fans. However, some voiced concern over the pre-dominance of in-game footage over the real life puppeteering the show is known for. Jon responded to these comments stating that the toys and real life footage will be returning.
