Plans for the future of Showtime's long-running serial killer drama Dexter have been vague as the series heads into its eighth season. But in a discussion with Wall Street analysts, CBS Chief Executive Les Moonves may have revealed when the series will end.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, an analyst's question Monday about coming programming on the CBS-owned pay channel prompted the executive to say: "We have Ray Donovan coming on with Liev Schreiber, which comes on with Dexter's last season starting in June, and then we have Masters of Sex."
Though Showtime is maintaining that nothing has been determined about the show's future, Moonves' comment seems to confirm what many have suspected: that the time is coming for Miami's favorite serial killer to hang up his knife.
The end is in sight for Michael C. Hall's popular serial killer, Dexter.
The show's eighth season will debut on Showtime on June 30. Despite its age, Dexter continues to do well in the ratings. The finale of the show's seventh season was its highest-rated episode ever (and the highest-rated scripted episode on Showtime), with 2.75 million viewers in the US.
Michael C. Hall, who plays the police forensics expert who does some killing on the side, has been nominated five times for an Emmy award but has never won. His co-star Jennifer Carpenter shared with fans on Twitter that Hall would be making his directorial debut with the second episode of the season.
Charlotte Rampling and Sean Patrick Flannery will join the cast for the eighth season.
