Fans of the hit Showtime series “Dexter” have a lot to be thankful for. The show is getting a rare early return. Instead of its usual Fall debut, the eighth season will premiere this June.
David Nevins, Showtime’s entertainment president, says that fans don’t need to worry about the earlier air date affecting the quality of the show. As he explained, “They had a lot of advance warning [that this was happening] and they know where they’re going. No less production time; a little less vacation time.”
Nevins also stated, “I’m not making any announcements today about when Dexter will end. I will clarify that before Dexter goes on the air. There’s a clear end game in place but I can’t talk about it just yet… the decision is ultimately a creative decision. Dexter is to Showtime what Batman is to Warner Bros. I want to take care of it.”
What do you think about rumors that season 8 will be the last? Are you hungry for more or has the show run its course?
