The Fugitive?

He keeps bumping into people who think it's Dick Kimble all over again, but he's just a head job looking for his next murder subject.

Season 7 Dexter would have ended up on Season 1 Dexter's table...

Last season I saw was the dreaful Julia Stiles one.

Quit after that as that was pretty dire!

Maybe the producers should too.

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.
This would seem like a plausible explanation of the ratings. Finding out what finally happens is indeed why I read Dexter threads, although the show is too unbearably bad by comparison with the first couple of seasons to tolerate watching.

Except that the ratings, while quite good for cable, were never so large, so the number of fans tuning back in probably wouldn't provide that much of a bump. I fear that more people actually like the Dexter who always gets away with killing, no matter how far-fetched the escape, while having some beautiful women obsessing over him.

No one stops making a tv show when it's ratings are increasing. Expect at least 2 more seasons of Dexter.

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

one more then no more please.
This.

As much as I enjoy the show... it seems to be heading in a series finale direction. It wouldn't be good to continue it to the point where both the writing and the story aren't good anymore.

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

While it is not listed as being the final season, season 8 starts a bit earlier this year, on June 30th:

As much as we love our yearly doses of Showtime’s ‘Dexter,’ the wait time in between seasons can be torturous given the shocking cliffhangers doled out each year. Thankfully, ‘Dexter’ fans will be excited to learn that Showtime has decided to premiere ‘Dexter’s likely final year early, debuting in June 2013! So why the big change? Find out why ‘Dexter’ fans will be seeing season 8 early inside!

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

I love Dexter but the season 7 ending leaves little room for Dexter and co to go on so season 8 should be the final IMO and as for the quality of the show, my own ranking is...
