Showtime Brass Confirms Dexter Season 8 as the Last... Maybe

Showtime Brass Confirms Dexter Season 8 as the Last... MaybeLet's face it. "Dexter," though extremely popular, has seen better days. In fact every season since Trinity sat naked in his kill tub has been kind of bland by comparison. As a result Showtime is considering having Season 8 be the last for the dark passenger.

THR reports that while speaking to analysts at a Wall Street conference Monday in Palm Beach, Florida, CBS Corp. CEO Les Moonves indicated that the serial killer drama will wrap its run following the upcoming eighth season.

Asked by an analyst -- who implied that the Michael C. Hall-Jennifer Carpenter drama was in its last season -- what was in the pipeline for the CBS Corp.'s sibling cable network Showtime, Moonves may have let the cat out of the bag.

"We have 'Ray Donovan' coming on with Liev Schreiber, which comes on with 'Dexter''s last season starting in June, and then we have 'Masters of Sex'," Moonves replied with a laugh as if to acknowledge something that Showtime has yet to do.

Showtime executives have been mum on what the future holds for "Dexter." A spokesperson for the network told The Hollywood Reporter late Monday that there was "nothing confirmed" about if the series could and would continue beyond Season 8.

This calls for one of our all time favorite videos...

"Dexter," starring Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter, returns to Showtime on June 30th.
