'Dexter' Season 8 Is Confirmed to Be the Last, Debuts First Clip
It's official; "Dexter" season 8 will be the last for the show. After months of speculation regarding the show's future, Showtime finally confirms that the groundbreaking series will return for its final chapter this summer.
"When it debuted in 2006, DEXTER redefined the genre, by taking the anti-hero to new heights and pushing the boundaries of the television landscape," Matthew C. Blank, Chairman and CEO, Showtime Networks Inc, said in a statement released on Thursday, April 18. "DEXTER paved the way for the next generation of award-winning hit SHOWTIME series, and its cultural impact will be felt for years to come."
David Nevins, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc., added, "DEXTER is a landmark franchise for our network, and we cannot wait to unveil the conclusion of this series, as we know it, to the millions of passionate fans who have supported the show season after season. We'd like to thank Michael [C. Hall], Jennifer [Carpenter], and DEXTER 's indomitable cast, executive producers, writers and crew for eight incredible seasons."
To tease fans, Showtime debuts a sneak peek for the upcoming installment. The clip features Dexter who apparently meets Deb for the first time in weeks. "My life is none of your business," Deb tells her brother when he asks her why she has been avoiding him.
Looking messed up, Deb continues, "Do you want to know why I'm not returning your calls? It's because I don't want to talk to you and I really don't want to f***ing see you. Why? Because you made me compromise everything about myself that I care about. And I hate you for it. I shot the wrong person in that trailer."
The eighth and final season of "Dexter" will premiere Sunday, June 30, at 9 P.M. on Showtime. It will serve as a lead-in to new show "Ray Donovan", starring Liev Schreiber as a professional "fixer" for the rich and famous in Los Angeles.
