The Showtime original series, Dexter, may see its final run come next season. The topic of discussion was put on the killing table at a recent conference that spoke with CBS president and CEO Les Moonves. More details after the break.
During the Deutsche Bank Media, Internet and Telecom conference, when asked about Dexter, Moonves was asked by the moderator whether or not the show would be going off the air. Moonves replied:
“We have Ray Donovan coming on, with Liev Schreiber, which comes on with Dexter‘s last season starting in June”
Dexter has jumped the shark on several occasions. The code is practically non-existent at this point. Not only has the series been a roller coaster of success and failures, but continues to recycle the same events each season. After season seven ended, which was a considerable improvement to seasons five and six, it only makes sense that they should call it quits.
Dexter has been on a bumpy road since season four, but Michael C. Hall has continued to embrace everyone’s favorite anti-hero with finesse. The fate of Dexter has been toyed with for quite some time. Ratings this past season have also been higher than ever before. But fans have been in agreement that the show should take a bow while they’re ahead. There is no need to milk the cow dry.
Should Dexter end this summer?
Dexter season 8 begins June 30, 2013 and we’ll have to wait and get an official confirmation whether this will be the last.
Now with LaGuerta gone, Quinn will probably go back on the trail of Dexter, and Deb will most likely be emotionally unstable. Dexter season 8 will be interesting to see how they could wrap up the show. How much further could they drag it out? There is no possible way Dexter can get out of this without killing everyone is there?
