Showtime boss David Nevins revealed that the end is in sight for one of the pay cable network’s most popular series, E! Online reports.
Appearing today at the Television Critics Association press tour, Nevins said the eighth season will be “the likely endpoint” for “Dexter.” That would give the show, which stars Michael C. Hall, two more seasons.
Nevins stopped short of saying the show will end for sure at that point, saying he’s “open” to the idea of more.
The show generated controversy in season six with a story line involving Deb’s (Jennifer Carpenter) more than sibling feelings toward her adoptive brother Dexter, the story notes.
Said Nevins: "Yeah, I’m aware that there’s a certain taboo despite the fact that they’re not genetically related. It’s something that has been building for a number of years, I think. It’s an idea that’s informed how they’ve done the show for a long time."
