Does Dexter have a series after season 8?
Dexter is "definitely" ending after Season 8, executive producer Sara Colleton confirmed in an interview with TV Guide.
When Showtime's serial killer thriller was renewed for two more seasons mid-way through Season 6, it was widely assumed that episode order would be its closing run. But Showtime president David Nevins left his options open, telling Deadline.com at the time of the renewal, “I’m not going to say with absolute certainty that this is the end, but that is the likely scenario, that the series is moving towards a definite end.”
Now, Colleton has moved the end-game a step closer. "This was definite," she clarified. "We wanted to end it this year, but the network convinced us that it would be best to do it in two years. In some ways, this is a two-season series-ender. We have worked that out and know where it's going to end. Next year will definitely be the last year of Dexter. Absolutely."
With Showtime pot comedy Weeds also slated to end after its upcoming eighth season, the premium network is entering something of a transitional period.
"There were two shows, Weeds and Dexter, that really got Showtime taken seriously for cutting-edge original programming," Nevins recently told EW. "How they get brought home is really important."
Thanks to Chopsaki for the submission.
