Dexter Gets a New Showrunner

Though I dug it myself, a lot of fans were upset about this season of the hit Showtime series “Dexter”. Maybe some new blood is in order to keep things interesting again? Apparently Showtime thinks so, too.

According to Deadline Hollywood executive producer Scott Buck has been named the new showrunner. He will succeed Chip Johannessen, who ran the show last season.

So will changing showrunners do the trick for fans who want their favorite dark passenger back in top form? Time will tell, but maybe Showtime should look into the possibility of bringing in a few new writers as well. We shall see.

    I thought season 5 was the smartest one yet. It lacked the “what the hell” moments that took me out of the drama for the first 4 seasons.

    However, if the new show runner is an ex Shield veteran we can have some faith.

    This is great news in my eyes!

    I didn’t *hate* season 5, but I felt it was wholly lukewarm.

    Fingers are crossed that Buck can restore the quality of writing to previous seasons.
