TV Notes
Showtime’s David Nevins On The Decision To End ‘Dexter’ & Potential Spinoff Series
By Nellie Andreeva, Deadline.com - Apr. 19, 2013

Yesterday’s official announcement that the upcoming eighth season of Dexter will be its last was two years in the making. When Showtime gave the veteran drama a two-year renewal in 2011, the network’s entertainment president David Nevins noted that that was likely going to be the end. “We wanted to leave open the possibility for a change if something creatively came up,” Nevins said in an interview today. “Once we ended last season and did some of the creative conversations between seasons, it became clear the time was right (to end the series).” There was no point over the past two years where extending Dexter beyond Season 8 was seriously considered. And the “basic end game scenario” sketched going into Season 7, has remained pretty much intact, Nevins said. While made before Season 8 went into production, the decision was kept quiet (save for CBS Corp. CEO Les Moonves’ slip) to make the official announcement closer to the season premiere date.

While Dexter will end with the upcoming eighth season, that won’t necessarily be the end of the franchise, with a spinoff series a possibility. “There are all sorts of possibilities,” Nevins said, adding that “all kinds of ideas have been discussed but there is nothing happening right now.” There are no plans to use any of the episodes in the upcoming season of Dexter to set up a potential spinoff, and no Dexter cast members have deals for potential off-shoot series. “This season is about this season playing out the trajectory of the Dexter character,” Nevins said.

As for the heightened sensitivity towards violence in light of recent mass killings, “we’re not putting new limitations on the show in its last season,” Nevins said, noting that Dexter has never been about the depiction of violence. “The show has always been very interested in the psychology of Dexter and the psychology of violence. That will be examined this season, bringing together the threads of how Dexter developed as a character, the background that formed him, his relation with his sister, his son, his romantic relationships.”

Another Showtime drama, however, will relate to current events. The upcoming third season of Dexter‘s former companion Homeland “will deal with the aftermath of a major bombing event and will touch on many things you watch on CNN and Twitter,” Nevins said.

LOL. I'd set my "season pass" a month early tongue.gif

Here is my spin-off:

After Dex's death or disappearance, Deb opens a Private Detective biz, with Angel moonlighting on occasion as he tries to make ends meet at his new eatery.
Masuka quits the dept. out of disgust when Dexter is unmasked and becomes a Medical Examiner.....AND opens a porn website.

+1, we have been anxious since it was announced to begin on the 30th. I am re-watching the last episodes from last season to get in the flow again.

Wonder what's going to happen with good ole Quinn. Quinn in something else tongue.gif
post #5958 of 6855
If Quinn doesn't die I'll be disapointed, he needs to go in 2 or 3 episodes hopefully Dexter does him or maybe Deb

I'd rather see him become a casualty of Angel Batista for messing around with Angel's very young sister.

...Angel & Quinn Stab each other to death in a fight over the younger sister , ...
Dexter walks in on this, tries to break it up, but he's too late ...

What am I, chopped liver? tongue.gif I long ago declared my unrequited love for Julie Benz. Whether she's playing Dexter's doomed wife, Dr. Jack Shepard's divorced wife, or the Mayor of Defiance and nobody's wife, I'm so there. There's just something about Julie...
post #5968 of 6855
haha, funny.

Nobody mentioned how Lila is in the above pictures? I wonder if she's returning this season.

Can't wait for the premier. Going to be an awesome season, I'm sure it'll be action-packed.

She is a cutie, no argument here.

Is that season 2 premier? what the heck is going on? are they going to revive both? or some flashbacks?

Maybe they'll meet in the afterlife or something..


(however it seems they got a courtesy invite for participating in the series, even Yvonne is there)
