Subscribe to Michael C. Hall alerts

Finally, the news has been confirmed that Dexter will get one more series, but it will be the last. A short clip has aired online, courtesy of the producers Showtime, giving a sneak peek of the eighth season of the show. However, this will be the final outing for Michael C Hall and Jennifer Carpenter’s drama. The clip shows Deborah (Carpenter) avoiding her brother, skipping LaGuerta’s memorial and generally closing everyone out, claiming that she’s working on a case.

Back in December, the executive producer Scott Buck told The Hollywood Reporter that they were expecting the show to be ending, though they were open to continuing if they got the word: “We are absolutely writing it with an end in sight, but if we get told otherwise somewhere along the way, we'll take it in a different direction. But we are definitely working toward the finale of the series. We are indeed, yes.”

During its time on air, Dexter has rustled up a whole slew of awards and nominations including 25 Emmy award nominations. Michael C Hall has landed five nominations for best actor and has also racked up ten Golden Globe nominations for his role in the show. It’s Showtime’s most popular production, alongside Homeland, with its series seven finale drawing in 6.2 million weekly viewers. Bowing out, on a high, very soon Dexter will be no more.
