Showtime's 'Dexter' To Be Killed After Eight Seasons

The cult TV series Dexter, which has been airing on Showtime since 2006, has been confirmed for its 8th and final season this summer. Dexter deals with the moral, ethical and social choices of a police expert by day, sociopathic killer by night, who specializes in criminals – arguably, people who “deserve it”.

Despite his questionable morals, Dexter the character is certainly loved by viewers. And Dexter, the show, will be missed. Since it’s inception, it has redefined the genre and pushed the boundaries of dark humour. But, as the show’s star, Michael C Hall commented for Entertainment Weekly, the story has all but run its course: "I've been an advocate for having a dialogue with the writers and getting a sense of how to best bring this story home - not wrap everything up with a tidy bow, but find some sort of conclusion," Hall said. There has to be an end game. Once Deb found out, it felt like we were moving toward a place where the world as Dexter knew it would end," he added. Deb is, of course, Dexter’s sister in the story, with whom he shares a complicated brother/father figure relationship.

So there you have it, folks. You may want to get your DVDs out for a marathon rewatch in preparation for the final season. It’s going to be killer.

'Dexter' could never have been as successful without Michael C. Hall as the chilling Dexter Morgan.
