DEXTER season 8 may NOT be the last season after all
 
Quote:

Fans of Showtime's serial killer soap opera "Dexter" get ready to rejoice... tentatively. Since the summer, we've been under the impression that the series' eighth season, which airs in late 2013, will be its last. We even heard executive producer Sara Colleton confirming that Season 8 shall "definitely" be the last hurrah for the affable Florida-based murderer.

Not so fast, says showrunner Scott Buck.

In an interview with NY Mag's Vulture blog, Buck gives "Dexter" followers a glimmer of hope when responding to a question regarding the supposed final season.

"It might be the last. That hasn’t been announced yet. We’ve been picked up for one more season, but whether that is the last one or not has not yet been determined."

Buck was then asked if he "thinks" it should be the last. "Well, honestly, because we were picked up for two seasons, and the understanding was it may be the last, we’re certainly moving in that direction. But until Showtime tells us one way or another we’re not making any more definitive decisions," was how the producer replied.

The ratings are too good to cancel! This show is going to go on for ten more seasons isn't it?:eek:

To be honest, I enjoy Dexter, but it's not as good as it used to be.

If they know that its the last season, they can wrap it all up, and dedicate a whole season to the end. If suddenly they want to open a window for other seasons, that might hurt the quality and an unsatisfying ending.

I hope this season is the last

Ratings are up... but quality is way down.

Networks care about the quality of their hit shows?

Dexter made Jonny Lee Miller and Julia Stiles boring. That's terminal decline, and I quit for good, after sufffering through seasons four and five. (Season three had its longeurs too, but it had the terrific Margo Martindale episode Easy as Pie.) I think that Clyde Phillips leaving marked the beginning of the end. Like most deaths, Dexter's is an ugly, drawn out nightmare. All it's offering now is tawdry vigilante fantasies, badly plotted, with fatuous characterizations and thematic frauds.

Since you haven't seen the show in two seasons, your opinion on stuff you haven't seen carries no weight.

Few shows age well, especially once the novelty wears off.

At least this season was a vast improvement over last season's disappointment... I still enjoy the show, and the latest twist is intriguing.

as much as i enjoy Dexter is should end soon. i would hate to see it drag on for another four years or more as a pale shade of what it once was.

They won't kill Dexter off and there will be a follow-up film.
Hopefully that will turn out better than what happened to Entourage.

The idea that Dexter recovered from season five carries no weight.

I'm confused as to the point of that post.

Are you trying to re-iterate that you somehow have a valid opinion on the quality of something you have not seen? Because that still isn't true.

Hoo-boy. I'm starting to feel the first twinges of Heroes-style urge to boycott.

The show has gotten to be pretty silly, and I was willing to stick with it for one more season to see how it ended. Not sure about two seasons though.

I loved the first four seasons of Dexter. Season 5 was a disappointment. I've lost interest about half way through season 6 (the next disc has been sitting on my coffee table for a couple of weeks now) and I haven't seen season 7. I think the show's about done. It's time to wrap the story up.

Going to season 8 was a stretch in my opinion, I really enjoyed season 7.

one more then no more please.

God, I wish someone would clue in Showtime that the reason the ratings are up is because the show is finally aiming towards a real finale (with huge stakes and revelations along the way), and people want to see how it all ends up.

The only way I could possibly go for an additional season is if it follows Dexter on the run from the law, and completely gets away from the usual characters and settings.

But if it's just more of the same, boring Miami PD crap, then hell no.
