Showtime Entertainment President David Nevins revealed that the end is in sight for one of the pay-cable network’s franchise series.
Nevins tells EW.com’s Inside TV that "Dexter," the show about a serial killer, is likely to end after its eighth season. Showtime last month renewed the drama for two more years, extending the show’s run to eight seasons, as previously reported.
“Coming back for two more years gives us clarity about how and when it will go out,” Nevins said, according to the piece. “There’s things that are going to happen [this season] that will set up a very clear endgame that will take two seasons to tell. You have got to be there for the last two episodes.”
Still, there’s a possibility the show could continue after the eighth season, Nevins noted. "I’m never going to say ‘never,’ but everybody is operating under that assumption. Things could take a turn creatively where they come to us and say they need more time," he said, according to the piece.
