This may be the final nail in the coffin for “Dexter.”
It’s been speculated over the last year that the Showtime serial killer drama was setting up its “end game” and preparing to wrap up the story of Dexter Morgan for good with Season 8.
“Dexter” fans holding their breath for a change of heart will be disappointed to hear that scenario is likely the case.
On a call with investors Monday, CBS president Les Moonves (CBS owns Showtime) seems to have delivered confirmation on the fate of the show, when he referred to this upcoming season of “Dexter,” which premieres in June, as its “last,” according to Broadcasting & Cable.
While that has been presumed for some time, Showtime president David Nevins has yet to officially announce that Season 8 is “Dexter’s” final season, leading viewers and industry observers to speculate that perhaps they were considering an extension.
But with Moonves being the top brass at CBS Corp., one has to assume he knows what he’s talking about. Sorry, “Dexter” fans. Now viewers can obsess over how “Dexter” will go out — Will he finally get caught? Will he get away with it and disappear into the sunset? Will he die? Let the speculation begin!
Season 8 of “Dexter” premieres Sunday, June 30 at 9/8c on Showtime.
