‘Dexter’ Season 8 Confirmed as the Final Year?

Dexter Season 8 Series Finale
Showtime

Long before ‘Dexter‘ began casting and shooting its eighth season, the serial killer drama’s producers expressed their belief that season 8 would be the final year for Dexter Morgan. Once it became apparent that the show’s seventh season continued to deliver record-setting ratings for Showtime however, the network became more cautious of confirming ‘Dexter’ season 8 as the last, but is the cat out of the bag? New comments from CBS president Les Moonves seem to confirm that ‘Dexter’ will end after its eighth season, so get the inside scoop within!

‘Dexter’ fans would likely never want to say goodbye to their beloved Bay Harbor Butcher, but it seems the upcoming season 8 premiere will be the last for the long-running Showtime series. During a Q&A session at Deutsche Bank’s 2013 DbAccess Media, Internet & Telecom Conference in Palm Beach, Florida, CBS president and CEO Les Moonves was heard to say “We have ‘Ray Donovan’ coming on, with Liev Schreiber, which comes on with ‘Dexter’s last season starting in June.”

Showtime reportedly declined to comment on Moonves’ statement, but given the network’s status as a subsidiary of CBS Corp., Moonves likely wouldn’t have misspoken or been misinformed about ‘Dexter’s eighth season being the last. Should the drama’s mammoth ratings streak continue, Showtime may decide to order an additional season after all, but a ‘Dexter’ season 9 deal might prove too costly and complicated a prospect.

‘Dexter’ season 8 will premiere on June 30, but what say you? Will the eighth season be the last for ‘Dexter,’ or will the Bay Harbor Butcher live to kill another day?
